“The younger ones may prefer a no-frills brat with just ketchup or mustard. Add the slaw for those who want theirs dressed all the way.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (19 7/8 ounce) package bratwursts
  • 1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 (10 ounce) packaged shredded angel hair coleslaw mix
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 12 cup thousand island dressing
  • 2 tablespoons deli mustard with grated horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • vegetable oil cooking spray
  • hot dog buns or hoagie roll


  1. Pierce each brat with a fork, and place in a large saucepan. Top with onion and coleslaw mix; sprinkle with caraway seeds. Pour apple cider over cabbage mixture; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 20 minutes or until cabbage is tender. Remove brats, and set aside.
  2. Drain cabbage mixture well, reserving 2 tablespoons cooking liquid. Discard remaining cooking liquid. Combine cabbage mixture, reserved cooking liquid, and Thousand Island dressing in a large bowl; toss to coat. Cover and chill.
  3. Combine mustard and honey in a small bowl; set aside. Place a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add brats to pan; cook about 6 minutes or until golden brown on all sides, turning often and basting with honey mixture. For grown up servings, place 1 brat in a bun with 1/3 cup slaw. For plain servings, server brats in bun without the slaw.
