... In the dietary sense.
We picked up these brats from the charming Iowan at the farmer's market - the one who, every week, without fail, manages to talk me into spending an extra $20 on some incredibly expensive pork product I hadn't previously anticipated even wanting.
But MAN, it is some good meat:
The brats were ours, the littler hot dogs Mara's. We kept things pretty simple, grilling them in a little olive oil with some sliced peppers and onions, then layering it all on toasted ciabatta rolls and drizzling with organic ketchup and mustard...
But very hard to eat.
Mara had less trouble with her hot dogs.
BEST. $20 IMPULSE PORK PURCHASE. YET.
