I used to get these lovely uncured German bratwurst at Aldi’s and enjoyed them often. Then disaster struck; couldn’t find them at Aldi’s for months and months. No idea why they never have them. Last week I found some very similar brats at Lidls in Wilson Boro near the Aldi’s there. They are out of their smoked brats in all varieties but I saw these uncured brats; they looked remarkably like those at Aldi’s and the flavor is pretty much identical to what I remember. They are pricy for Lidl’s; around $5 but you get five of them; a buck a piece is pretty decent these days. If you loved the ones from Aldi’s go get these as they will satisfy your bratwurst dreams! They brown up nicely and their delicate flavor is very authentic. I had one sautéed tonight along with some Italian peasant soup; great combo. Go get some, you know you want them!
Quick update. So I went back last week and got some Cheddar Brats at Lidls…a German supermarket located in Wilson Boro. A plus is that they are super cheap; $2.49 a six pack. So…the bratwursts were on the menu twice so far. Yummy; not too cheddary, juicy as well as mildly smokey. We had them with a version of tater tots called tater crowns; discs of crunchy potato bits. Less than 8 minutes to brown them lightly before diving in. I recommend these brats for a quick tasty meal. Pleaser for the 8 year old. Go get em!
