Ingredients

2 Tbsp
olive oil
8
links, veal, beef or chicken bratwurst
4
mcintosh apples left unpeeled, sliced
2
medium onions, sliced
salt & ground pepper, to taste
1 c
hard apple cider
2 Tbsp
brown sugar
1/3 c
a good grainy mustard
1 Tbsp
butter
1
loaf pumpernickel raisin bread, sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat broiler.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of olive oil, about 2 tablespoons, and a half inch of water. Prick the sausages and place them into the pan. Cover and bring the liquids to a bubble then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the sausages in the water until cooked through, 8-9 minutes. Remove the lid, let the water cook away and crisp and caramelize the skins of the sausages, 4-5 minutes more.
2
Remove the sausages from the pan and add the apples and onions, season with salt and pepper, and cook until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add the hard cider, brown sugar and grainy mustard, and bring up to a bubble. Add the sausages back to the pan and cook until the liquids have reduced a bit and thickened up, 3-4 minutes.
3
While everything is simmering, toast a few slices of pumpernickel bread under the broiler and butter them. Serve the sausages with some noodles and buttered pumpernickel toast alongside.
