Creamy Bratwurst

When I think of making Bratwurst for the family, it is usually the same ol thing.  Shove it in a bun, drizzle on mustard or ketchup, or sauerkraut, and call it good.

But truth be told, it's a little boring and I'm quite tired of that.  So, I had seen this Portuguese recipe for creamy sausages, using a different kind of sausage than Bratwurst, but since my family love brats and they were on sale at my local commissary, I went with those.

You can still serve it on buns for a fun quick lunch, or turn into into an easy dinner meal served over mashed potatoes or rice.  We had ours with Basmati rice and it was filling and delicious.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.  

Creamy Bratwurst

Bratwurst sausages (however many you want, I used two packages for this recipe)
Olive oil
2 small onions, thinly sliced
Half a red pepper and half a green pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
Nutmeg to taste
Diced Tomato
1 tablespoon tomato paste
Little bit of water
2 teaspoons mustard
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 can Media Crema (or heavy cream)

In a pot, add a drizzle of olive oil, the garlic, onions, garlic to taste and peppers.  Stir to combine and cook over medium heat until onions are translucent.  Add in the salt and pepper to taste, nutmeg, paprika, diced tomato and tomato paste.

Stir to combine and dissolve the tomato paste, then add in the bratwurst.  Pour in about half a cup of water, cover and let it cook for about 10 minutes or until bratwurst is cooked through.

Open lid, stir the bratwurst, then add in the mustard and mayonnaise, mix well, then pour in the small can of media crema.  Remove from heat and let sit for a few minutes to thicken up.

Serve immediately.
