Our church mentioned last week an Octoberfest meal next month. Which includes bratwurst...the only grilled sausage like product I eat (I have always and will always abhor hot dogs...I was an admittedly odd kid). So this whole week I've been craving bratwurst, wanting some. Tonight we swung into Trader Joes and grabbed some to cook and eat. Originally the plan was to simply pan fry them and eat them with potato crisps.
But we got home and I got to thinking that grilled/sauteed onions sounded good. Those cooked, and the brats were still cooking and I looked at our macintosh apples and thought, "One of the recipes for the pork chops was apples and onions, I bet they'd be good" so I peeled, cored, and sliced those up. (and for the record everything was sauteed in the lard I rendered...mmm!)
