Bratwurst with Warm Bacon, Onion, and Pickle Relish

 

There is a lot of German in this girl. My Dad was born there, I called my Grandparents Oma and Opa. Sometimes I crave the flavors that they introduced me to. I especially love Rouladen (meat rolls) and Kohlrouladen (cabbage rolls)  but they can be labor intensive. For this recipe I tried to capture the flavors of the rouladen in an easy weeknight meal. In my opinion it was pretty good and easy too. This relish would be equally as good on pork chops, hot dogs or any sausage.

Warm Bacon, Onion and Pickle Relish

1/2 c chopped raw bacon

1 c chopped red onion

1 c chopped dill pickles ( use the refrigerated variety,  better quality, flavor, and texture)

2T apple cider vinegar

1 t sugar

 

Add bacon to a large hot frying pan, cook over med high heat for about 3 minutes, add onions and cook until bacon is crisp and browned about 3 more minutes. Drain excess fat and add pickles cook for 2 minutes

Add vinegar and sugar. Heat through and serve over prepared bratwurst, add mustard if desired.
