.How do you fix a bratwurst? I have a rule about hot dogs: mustard-yes, ketchup-no. My favorite is a Chicago dog: Vienna Beef on a poppy seed bun with everything, including sport peppers; hold the celery salt. But I digress. What about grilled brats?
.Looking in the refrigerator, I was delighted to find that we had leftovers from Chinese food. So, starting with grilled plum tomato spears, I also grilled sweet and sour peppers and pineapple to give it something special as well as balance out the hot giardiniera. The flavor was so good I don't know which I liked best, the brat or the toppings!
.The bun was lightly oiled (from the giardiniera) and seared on the grill. I treated myself to a bottle of Sam Adams Oktoberfest. Mmmmm... that was good eatin'!
