This inviting main dish is incredibly flavorful! (If you happen to have any leftovers, try piling them into a sandwich with this week’s pumpernickel bread.)
4 bratwurst links
2 yellow onions, peeled and sliced into half-rings
2 leeks, trimmed of root and dark green ends and thinly-sliced
2 sweet peppers, seeded and sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1. In a large sauté pan, melt the butter and then add the onions, leeks and peppers, cooking over low heat until all the onions and leeks are caramelized and the peppers are tender, about 20 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in another skillet, simmer the bratwurst in 1-2-inches of water to cover for 20 minutes. Then drain off the water from the skillet and continue cooking just long enough to brown the bratwurst lightly.
3. To serve, pile the bratwurst atop the caramelized veggies and serve with sauerkraut and mustard on the side.
