Well, I was at Trader Joe’s and got inspired.
How often does that happen?
They had these yummy pretzel rolls which immediately made me think, “I should buy some and make brats!”. So, I bought the rolls and then some brats, along with some red cabbage, an onion, and some potatoes and called it a day. I came home, put everything (minus the cabbage) on a baking sheet, popped it in the oven, sauteed my cabbage, and then served one big German-inspired meal. Easy as that.
You can see all of my Sheet Tray Suppers HERE!
This recipe serves as many as you want! Just load your baking sheet up with as much as your family needs for the night.
6 Bratwursts, cut in half
1 red onion, sliced
4 red potatoes, cut into chunks
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
salt and pepper (I love a good Kosher salt)
1 bag of shredded red cabbage
about 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with foil and then spray with Pam (for easy clean up!). Line up your meat and veggies on your baking sheet (try as hard as you can not to over-crowd). Drizzle a very liberal amount of EVOO down over everything (several big tablespoons) and then sprinkle on a very generous pinch of both salt and pepper.
Place your tray in the oven and roast for about 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, saute up your cabbage. I always just put mine in a large skillet over medium-high heat with a drizzle of EVOO and some apple cider vinegar. When it starts to soften and saute down, I add in a big pinch of both salt and pepper. I don’t like mine too mushy, so I saute it about 10 minutes before removing it from the heat.
When it’s time to eat, you pull your sheet tray out and your veggies will be tender and your Brats cooked to perfection.
Add a little bit to everyone’s plate along with a roll and dinner is done!
