- 4 bratwurst links
- 1 large Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored and cut into ½ inch pieces
- 1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
- 1 16 oz. package sauerkraut, drained
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
- 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 4 hot dog buns
Place the bratwurst links in the slow-cooker. Top with apples, onion, and sauerkraut. In a bowl add the brown sugar, caraway and fennel seeds, mix. Add the brown sugar mixture to the top of the slow cooker. Cook for 3-4 hours, until the bratwurst reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the bratwurst from the slow cooker. Place each bratwurst in a bun. Top with mustard then spoon the remaining mixture from the crock-pot onto the buns, to taste.
