I had a bunch of burger buns left after a HS Soccer team banquet and we had been craving Brat's for quite a while.
While watching TV, I saw an ad for the brat burgers and this recipe was born. One quick trip to the grocer and we were set. A great family meal or excellent for tailgating.
Gewurztraminer is a natural fit for this recipe.
