Don’t get us wrong, we love to savor our bratwurst the old-fashioned way: nestled in a hearty bun, slathered in mustard and sauerkraut. But the truth is, brats are so wonderfully flavorful, they’re worth ditching the bun once in a while to enjoy in their own right. All that smoky goodness can work magic in any number of soups and stews, not to mention take center stage paired with simple, wholesome flavors, such as apples and wilted cabbage. Bratwurst freezes very well, so the next time you spot them on sale, don’t be afraid to stock up. Thaw a package overnight in your fridge, then savor one of these eminently easy dinner recipes (no bun required)!
