Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Potato Pancakes

 

Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Potato Pancakes 002

Our warmest day in quite sometime around here, 70 degrees and sunny! Started the day off with a Poached Egg on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and my usual cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Got some things done inside and then got the 4 wheel cart out for most of the afternoon, good to get out in beautiful weather! For dinner tonight it’s Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Potato Pancakes.

 

 
I used Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. To prepare them; Just add the Brats to a large skillet and add water, until the Brats are covered. Bring them to a brisk boil but then immediately turn down the heat to a very low boil, more of a simmer than an active boil. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then finish off in a pan with just the Brats and a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get a nice crispy char and finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious and they cook up great! Served them all on Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hot Dog Buns and topped with Private Selection Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard.

For a side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
