Slow Cooker Tuesday: Reuben Brat Sandwich

Fall brings back Slow Cooker/Soup Tuesdays and I feel ready for it.  I have never liked a Reuben sandwich until now.  I saw this easy recipe to make in your slow cooker with brats (a true love of mine). It's a combination Reuben/Brat that your family and friends are sure to love and it's perfect for Sunday Football games. 

This recipe serves 10 and prep time is just 30 minutes.  
You will slow cook them in your crock pot for 7 -9 hours.

10 uncooked bratwurst links
 3 cans (12 ounces each) light beer (you can use nonalcoholic beer)
1 large sliced sweet onion
1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
3/4 mayonnaise
 1/4 cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
 2 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
1 garlic clove minced
 1/8 teaspoon pepper
10 split Hoagie buns or Brat buns
10 slices Swiss cheese

1) In a large skillet, brown bratwurst in batches and drain.  
2) In a 5 quart slow cooker, combine beer, sliced onion and sauerkraut, top with browned bratwurst.  
3) Cook, covered on low 7-9 hours or until the sausages are cooked through. 
4) Preheat oven to 350
5) In a small bowl, mix mayo, chili sauce, ketchup, chopped onion, relish, garlic & pepper until blended
6) Spread over cut sides of buns, top with cheese, bratwurst and sauerkraut mixture
7)  Place on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted

This recipe goes great with a medium-bodied wine...Try a chilled Riesling.    

Thanks for stopping by......
