Let’s talk about brats, shall we?
No, no. Not the sniveling kind you see pitching a fit over Superman in the toy aisle that makes you swear off having kids, ever. (Though the mother in me is now inclined to think there must just be something going on with the poor dear that is making him act out).
Not brats. Brawts brats. Bratwurst. And really by that, I’m just talking about grilling up some sausages – both meaty and faux-meaty – and making ourselves the quickest, easiest, and beer-friendliest meal around.
Seriously, since we discovered Costco carries both Field Roast and Aidell’s (chicken sausages with pineapple and bacon, specifically), we have been on brat overload. In a good way. Brats have become one of our easy go-to, mixed-diet meals. Each side of the barbecue gets a sausage, we toast up a couple of cushy outdoor rolls, select from an assortment of toppings (mustard, ketchup, relish, sweet onions – but sauerkraut is not a fave), pick a side dish or two, pick our beer, and dinner is on the table in less than 15 minutes.
And so, if you’re living the mixed-diet veggie and carnivore life like we are (or even if you aren’t), here’s another quick and easy dinner idea for you.
JUST DON’T FORGET THE BEER.
I love that beer – mmmmm Leinenkugel summer ale. Delicious!
Field Roast is a company that I am seriously passionate about! I absolutely love their vegan sausage, especially in the apple and sage flavor!
LOVE Field Roast! Have you ever had their hot dogs? So good. 🙂
Love Field Roast. We just finally found some here last week and were so incredibly impressed. So delicious!
Thank you so much for your blog! I am a vegetarian & hubby is a die hard meat fan. Will be visiting your blog often now.
Also THANK YOU to the ladies in the comments section for mentioning Field Roast. I had never heard of them and my 4 year old loves hot dogs and i do not like to give her the meat ones. She hates the soy hot dogs with a passion. Will definitely try the field roast ones now.
Hi Swati, thank you so much for your nice comment! I’m so glad you visited my blog and can relate to the “mixed diet” way of living. Field Roast is amazing – I hope your daughter loves them!
we are a family of carnivores..in fact, my husband is a hunter. where I do use the hamburger meat, the rest of if just freaks me out too much! so I am SUPER excited to have literally fallen onto your sight looking for a coffee syrup recipe… because now… i REALLY want to try some of the meatless options!!!!! I have never heard of field roast before, and now I can’t wait to go find it here in St Louis, so that on brat night, I don’t have to eat hot dogs, because i don’t want to eat deer! brats!
