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!!!

Prior to cooking in the bacon fat, I did boil the brats for a few minutes. I have found this helps to ensure that they are cooked through and they don't dry out. I allowed the brats to cook for a few minutes in the sauce and as the sauce thickened it really made a nice glaze. These were served with Simply German Potato Salad and Raw Vegan Red Cabbage Salad for a very satisfying meal. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
