Nathan's Sure-fire Brat's Recipe!

Step One: Go to the Store and buy some Brats. They're available at a wide variety of stores all over the country.

Step Two: Put them on the grill and cook them 'til they're cooked.

Step Three: Eat them.



I hope it's not too obvious but I've been decidedly uninspired today.

Dammit, I can't leave work for another 1.5 hours (I have a student showing up @ 6). You're making me hungry.

Nathan said...

I'm not doing it on purpose. Have you considered moving to a time zone further east? You'd be home by now!

vince said...

Or work from home. Then you'd also be home by now!

Nathan said...

Or don't work at all. Then, too, you'd be home by now!

Hey, we had Brats and Burgers for supper tonight! And some wicked grilled white potatoes with Montreal rub and garlic. Yummy!

We had pizza.

I had whole wheat pizza dough in the freezer, so pulled it out Sunday night, it was thawed by today, and after cutting shredding and dicing and rolling--easy dinner!

OK. It was a crappy week night dinner. But it was still really delicious.

Kim,

I only had Montreal Rub once and wasn't thrilled. Not sure which ingredient I didn't care for, but there's one taste in there that just doesn't do it for me.

Tania,

Are you home yet? Fed yet?

Nathan..I do not like their Steak rub spice, but i have found the chicken one to be great for all sorts of things...

Eric said...

I'm hungry, and I just had dinner. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

Now I am home. Still haven't eaten. Ended up meeting the spouse after work, ended up socializing with him and his co-workers, and now I've fed him but not myself.

Just because I make a mean spaghetti does not mean I will eat it. No how, no way.

I'm thinking cheese and crackers sounds like a good dinner at this point.

That's a very complicated recipe, not sure I can follow. I have a similar recipe to this, but it's for boiling water and you don't have to go anywhere to buy the ingredients :)

Nathan said...

Ya know,Chris,

I've been meaning to have a talk with the grocery stores near me. I can't, for the life of me, understand why they've always got my stuff on their shelves until I go there to get it. Hey, It's my stuff!

One clarification (you know, for the archives):

Brats are, I'm pretty sure, sold cooked. So the recipe should read "...cook them 'til they're hot."

Yes, you lose the mellifluous "cook/cooked" verbal hootenanny, but at least now, for sure, Paula Dean is on fuckin' notice!

Nathan said...

Jeff,

The brats I buy sure as hell aren't cooked when I buy them.

My brats are definitely raw too. If you're not too much on the instant gratification train (tough not to be with brats), you can also parboil them in beer & water (I use equal amounts of both) and then finish them to that crusty golden brown on the grill. This adds additional flavor and avoids the dreaded burnt outside, raw inside.

Granted, I'm usually too impatient to do this, but if you're patient enough, it's really good.
