saus3This is probably the easiest dinner I make. Yay for easy and tasty.

This is another recipe that can work for whatever ingredients are on hand. I usually use bratwurst and keilbasa, but any types of sausage will work. I also add bell pepper when I have it, but it’s good without too.

Could food possibly be less demanding?

This is good over rice, pasta, or by itself.

Sausage and Onions

6 links Bratwurst, cut in 1 inch slices
1 link Kielbasa, cut in 1 inch slices
2 to 3 onions, sliced (we really like onions)
1 bell pepper cut in strips
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbsp butter
Salt and Pepper

In a deep non-stick skillet heat butter. Add onions, salt, pepper. Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add sliced Bratwurst. Cook until browned. Add Kielbasa, red pepper, garlic. Cook on medium heat until Bratwurst is nearly cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Add beef broth, bring to a boil, cover and cook an additional 10 minutes. Remove cover and cook until liquid reduces an makes a gravy, 10-15 minutes.  Serve over buttered pasta, mashed potatoes, rice, or plain.

saus5I had battery issues, this is the best picture I could get. Serve meat any way you’d like. Tonight I went with Latkes, Brotchen and Sauerkraut. Usually I make warm German potato salad but the kids wanted Latkes, so like a good (hungry) mom I gave in.
