Bratwurst in Sauerkraut

While I do have a Grandma of German heritage she was not the cooking type! That being said, growing up in Chicago and frequenting Wisconsin for vacations I am well acquainted with bratwurst and sauerkraut. We spent our summer vacations up in Door County, Wisconsin and a highlight for me was the Rotary club's 4th of July grill out! Hot dogs and brats were a couple bucks and served unadorned. Oddly, Bratwurst was the only sausage I ate with ketchup on top. As an adult I now prefer the traditional brown mustard. Now. Ben did grow up with a legit German Oma (grandma) and she was most definitely the cooking type! This dish is inspired by her!
