Tasty Tuesday Recipe

Marriage is…

Many, many things! We could all go on and on and on about it, but this time I’m talking about compromise! This is the factor that all those couples who are lucky enough to celebrate 30, 40, 50 or even 60 years can agree upon. Yes, there are many other ingredients to a successful marriage, but I think we can all agree that the give and take is at the top of the list.

So, when it was a week where I was starting our menu on Monday with chicken, something Adam eats and enjoys but tires of very easily, I figured the nice wifely thing to do was plan something later in the week that I might not enjoy as much but he does. Since we like many of the same foods, that list isn’t as long as it is for many other couples but something popped into my head immediately — bratwursts.

Adam loves them! Me? They’re okay. I think it’s because my dad also loves them and we ate them a lot in the summer months when I was growing up. I think I just grew bored with them. Since I do 99% of the meal planning and cooking around here, they don’t get included that often. But every once in a while I have pity on his taste buds and treat him.

When I do agree to bratwursts I have two rules. One, they must be grilled. Hot dogs, I’ll boil, skillet fry, or even microwave. Brats must be grilled! Two, they have to be topped with sauteed pepper and onions. It’s like having a street fair in our own kitchen! I think Adam could have them without the special topping but for me it’s the only way I can eat them.

Is there a food or dish your spouse loves but you could live without? Maybe you could cook it for them and score a few extra of those compromise points! Heck, we can all use extra where we can get them!

 Grilled Bratwursts with Onions & Peppers Recipe

Grilled Bratwursts with Onions & Peppers

What you need:

1 package original bratwursts
1 TBS butter
1 TBS olive oil
1 green pepper, seeded and sliced thin
1 medium white onion, sliced thin
Salt and Pepper to taste
Brat Buns
Mustard and other toppings, if desired

What you do:

Preheat grill to medium heat. Spray with nonstick spray. Place brats on and cook according to package directions. Ours took 5-6 minutes per side. In a small skillet, heat oil and butter over medium heat. Add peppers, onions and season with salt and pepper. Saute until brown and tender, stirring often (about 10 minutes). Place brats in buns. Top with mustard and pepper/onion mixture.

Note: The peppers and onions can be prepared ahead and simply reheated when ready to serve.

Do you have a meal you make for your significant other because they love it? Do you like grilled bratwursts? How do you make them?

  3. This is so good. My husband and I eat pretty much the same thing. He enjoys my chocolate chip cookies and I enjoy when he prepares scumbled eggs for me.
