Leftover Bratwurst Scramble

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

We have this the morning after we have grilled bratwurst. I boil my brats in beer, green bell pepper slices, and onion slices before grilling. The left over brats, peppers, and onions are great in a scramble (especially if you had too many beers the night before). :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 red potatoes
  • 1 bratwurst, leftover from beer boil and grill
  • 12 bell pepper, leftover from beer boil
  • 12 small onion, leftover from beer boil
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 18 teaspoon chili powder (to taste)
  • 18 teaspoon garlic powder (to taste)
  • 18 teaspoon onion powder (to taste)
  • 18 teaspoon paprika (to taste)
  • 8 eggs, cracked and beaten


  1. Prick the potatoes multiple times with a fork and cook in microwave for 3 minutes. Turn and cook an additional 2 minutes. Set aside to cool and then cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. Cut leftover bratwurst into 1/2 cubes.
  3. Roughly chop the leftover peppers and onions.
  4. Pan fry the potatoes, bratwurst, peppers, onions, and spices in the vegetable oil for about 5 minutes over meduim heat, turning often. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Push the potato mixture to the side of the pan and scramble the eggs, lightly incorporating the potato mixture when the eggs are just about done.
  6. Top with a bit of hot sauce if desired.

My husband is a brat fan, but we control our diet all year around! But sometimes you've just got to let yourself have those yummy tastes. I don't eat the brats, I had hot doggies, but this leftover breakfast my husband just loved! I halved it, so he will eat it for 2 days, and won't have to worry about breakfast, since he leaves at 4:30 AM. I added a little bit of Swiss cheese. He loved it!

This was tasty! I've never had bratwurst in the morning so it was a nice change. Made as stated! Made for ZWT4 Family Picks for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

This was very good. I really liked having bratwurst in the morning. (Of course, I like bratwurst anytime!) I didn’t use bell pepper, just personal preference.
