This sweet and sour bratwurst makes tasty sandwiches, or serve the sausages with rice or salads. This dish is slow cooked with peppers, onions, and a tasty sauce. A dish with black beans in it would make a nice side dish.

What You'll Need

  • 8 to 10 bratwurst or other fresh sausage links
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 bottle barbecue sauce, about 18 ounces
  • 3 medium green bell peppers
  • 2 medium red bell peppers
  • 1 (16 oz.) can chunk pineapple, drained

How to Make It

  1. Brown the bratwurst over medium-high heat in a skillet. Cut the browned sausages into bite-size pieces, if desired.
  2. Layer sliced onion in bottom of slow cooker; add the cooked sausage and barbecue sauce.
  3. Cover and cook on low for about 3 to 4 hours.
  4. Add peppers, onion and pineapple chunks to the slow cooker. Cook, occasionally stirring, until peppers are tender, about 2 to 3 hours longer.
  5. Serve with potato salad and beans, or serve whole sausages with sandwich rolls.
