Dutch Oven Bratwurst, Potatoes, Onions, Peppers.

With winter changing into spring and summer coming shortly,  I have been missing my dutch ovens so I thought that I would clean them up and start using them.  Memorial Day is only a week away and I wanted to get warmed up for some great food. So I decided to start with a classic, dutch oven Bratwurst, Potatoes, Onions, Peppers

In Wisconsin Brats are a staple and no good party or tailgate is without them along with beer of course. So this recipe is a taste of Wisconsin, only thing missing is some cheddar cheese. I can’t believe I forgot that. Next time.

There are so many varieties, of styles and flavors, you just have to try them all.

I used my Lodge 12 inch cast iron camp dutch oven.

The next morning I used a hot cast iron skillet and some butter to brown up with a nice crust, a bratwurst, potatoes, onions and peppers and topped with a couple of sunny side up eggs. Soooooo Gooood. And a little more fresh ground pepper. Every restaurant should have this.



If you have never used a dutch oven also known as a camp oven or camp dutch oven, it’s time to start. I will write a post on what a dutch oven is. The smell alone of this food would have you shopping for a dutch oven.

Instructions
  1. Add the oil to your hot Dutch Oven (DO). Brown the sausage. When the sausage is browned add the onions and cook for a few minutes. Add the peppers and cook until they start to soften, stirring occasionally. Add the potatoes and beer, salt pepper to taste. Cover and cook with about 8-10 coals on bottom and maybe 12 or so on top. Cook approximately 45 minutes.
Recipe Notes

Any dark beer will work, I had an old stout so I used it. My coals were burning down so  I covered the top with them because they weren't super hot. Fresh coals burn hotter and I would have liked the potatoes and sausage to brown a little more.
