      This was VERY good!!! I've made brats like this for years. I liked the "sandwich" idea over buns, so I used caraway rye bread. Also used Muenster cheese. I'm not a big mustard fan, but my wife likes Gulden's, so that's what we used. THANKS for sharing!!!

      These sandwiches were very easy and "brewing" the bratwurst added an extra little kick. We used the Rye bread option. This sandwich is very large and filling. We liked the Sauerkraut with the mustard too. I served this alongside steamed green beans for a fast and delicious dinner. Thanks for a great recipe lazyme! Made for Went To The Market tag game - Spring 2013.
