5lbs of bratwurst - what to do with it?

jen223 | Apr 29, 2013 03:01 PM

So we emerged from a Sam's Club with probably 12-13lbs of meat, but of this was 5lbs of fresh bratwurst, bought on a whim because the samples handed out were tasty.

It's only the 2 of us, and we like to vary the food we eat (read: brats on buns will get old, fast). We're also trying to stay trim for an upcoming event (I know, bratwurst isn't exactly lean). Anyone have any recipe ideas?

I just bought a bunch of bean sprouts, so tonight I was thinking of taking a brat out of its casing and frying the ground meat with the bean sprouts, adding some soy sauce and rice wine for extra flavor, and serving with rice.

I've also thought about a soup/stew with potatoes, onions, and cabbage.

Any other ideas? Thanks!
