German Week at Aldi

Recently, it was German Week at Aldi. Being a German based company, they often carry German made products, but during German week they have quite a few extra special food items. Many of their German products are great quality, especially the chocolate kind (which, fortunately, they have year round). I just wanted to share with you a quick, delicious meal made with Aldi's Bavarian Bratwurst, German Style Sauerkraut, Bavarian Sweet Mustard and fresh apples.  Ingredient quantities are flexible.

Bavarian Bratwurst with Sauerkraut and Apples

  1. In a fry pan over medium heat, saute about ½ cup chopped yellow onion in 1-2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil, until tender and just starting to brown.
  2. Add 2 small apples, cut into chunks  and continue to cook for about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in 1 cup of packed sauerkraut that the juice has been squeezed out of.
  4. Add 2 bratwurst and cover.  Simmer for about 5 minutes or until the bratwurst is hot throughout.
  5. Serve with Aldi's Bavarian Sweet Mustard! Delish! We had it with sweet mashed potatoes - while not traditional, it was real good.
