  • 2-3 Tbs bacon grease or high heat oil
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 5-6 medium sized potatoes, cut into wedges. My favorite are Yukon Gold, but you can use whatever you want. Peel or not peel - that's up to you. We prefer peeled potatoes.
  • 6 - 8 bratwurst
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Heat up bacon grease or grapeseed oil over medium heat
  3. Add garlic and onion and saute until fragrant - about 3-5 minutes. Remove garlic and onion from skillet.
  4. Turn heat up to medium-high, add more bacon grease if necessary, then add the potato slices.
  5. Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes. Then, uncover, flip the potatoes, cover back up and cook for 3-5 more minutes. Use the longer cooking time if you like your potatoes a little burned and crispy like I do, or the shorter time if you prefer them not to get a little burned.
  6. Turn off the heat. Put the garlic and onions back on the potatoes and give it all a good stir.
  7. Top with bratwurst and place in the oven to bake about 30-40 minutes.
  8. Flip the brats about halfway through cooking time and also stir the potatoes.
  9. Serve with condiments and enjoy!
Recipe Type: Main Dish Meal

Serve it up with a tossed salad and a nice green veg and enjoy! I know I’m odd because I prefer wine with my brats, but you should enjoy a nice beer with this meal. 😉

  1. This is a dish we ate in Germany. Our friend Elsa would make this for us. I looked forward to it every time she made it.
    • I don't remember eating this dish in Germany! But now that you mention it, it does seem like something Germans would eat. They have so many wonderful sausages!! I hope you'll make it. It's easy and fab!
      • The recipe does not indicate type or number of potatoes. Red, gold, peeled, unpeeled? Obviously cut in several wedges... Looks good, I'd love to try it.
        • The potatoes did disappear from the recipe! Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I will add them back in! I use 5-6 medium sized potatoes of whatever variety I have on hand. I prefer Yukon Gold, but I think you can use whatever you want. And it's your call to peel or not peel. I generally peel. :-) ENJOY!!
  2. This is in the oven cooking right now and if this tastes as good as it smells (which I am more than sure it will), this will be a huge hit. Thank for an easy recipe that is going to be a nice change for our Sunday supper. I made sour kraut, roasted carrots and a salad as side dishes. This may be my next potluck dish too.
  3. Hi Michelle. I saw somewhere on your blog a lost if things you can do in a few minutes to help with the prep work, like cook beans and cook up the meat. I can't find that list. Where do I look?
  4. That was awesome meal! (I did microwave the brats for 3 minutes on paper towels to get out much of the fat.) Turned out so yummy, thanks for this simple recipe!
