Frugal Feasting Friday

Sorry, I don't have a photo for this segment of "Frugal Feasting Friday". However, I do want to share my very frugal and incredibly fast Bratts-N-Kraut recipe with you. You'll have this meal on the table within 20-25 minutes. I always serve bratts-n-kraut with potato hash.

Bratts -N- Kraut
(3 servings)
2 Bratwurst Sausages
1 14oz. can sauerkraut, drained & rinsed well (note: the more you rinse it the less sour it will be)
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. butter

In medium skillet, over medium heat melt butter. Add sliced onion and bratts. Cover skillet and "steam", turning bratts and stirring onions occasionally until bratts are cooked through, approximately 10 minutes. Slice bratts into 1" pieces. Add sauerkraut, sugar, and pepper mix well. Continue to cook over medium heat, uncovered, until sauerkraut is heated through.

Potato Hash
(3 servings)
3 potatoes, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 tbsp. oil or bacon grease
salt & pepper to taste

Heat bacon grease in skillet (I prefer cast iron for this dish). Add potatoes, onions and carrots. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to weep (edges begin to sweat and turn translucent). Cover to trap steam. Cook about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until potatoes are tender. Season with salt & pepper.

Cost Breakdown:
Bratts - 1.40
Sauerkraut - 1.09
Onion - 0.37
Potatoes - 0.39
Carrot - .0.14

TOTAL: $3.39 That's only $1.13 per person.
