Made this for supper tonite. It was tasty & good for something different. I didn't have enough bacon drippings leftover, so I added a little canola oil. After thickening the sauce a bit, I put the brats in, covered the pan & simmered them in the sauce on medium-low for about 10 minutes. THANKS for sharing!!!
