Skinless Brats?!?!?

So there's this locker in a small town about 50 miles from here. People rave about their skinless brats. Turns out we got some as a Christmas present, so I yanked them out of the freezer yesterday and gave them a whirl.

They had great flavor, but without the casing they were a little dryer...not dried out just not the same. Which means two things, it get all over the front of my shirt (I have a knack for that) and just wasn't same. Almost like breakfast sausage.

    I think I would miss the snap when biting through the casing. I would have reshaped those into burgers. -RP

    Touche! Wouldn't dream of it!
  • We have a restaurant nearby that serves a traditional Serbian sausage called cevapi, which is delicious. Several months ago, I found a recipe for cevapi, and the bread it is traditionally served on, called lepinja, and made them both on the egg.

    They're basically a skinless tube-shaped sausage, like your "skinless brats", though I think I used beef and lamb meat. Flavored with garlic, onion, red pepper. They're really good, but the bread is good too. We generally serve brats just on hotdog buns, so the brat is obviously the star. Without the brat snap, I would think the whole thing would lose texture and appeal. Try serving your skinless brats in a good quality flatbread and see what you think.
  • Some the the best Brats and dogs I have ever had I got from Usingers in Milwaukee. They have an online store and can ship them pretty much anywhere in the lower 48. I am in SC and when my order got here everything was still frozen even in August. Their website is
  • Can't go wrong with brats from Wisconsin! We're pretty good at cheese too. ;)
  • My wife went up there and went to Usinger's, then a year later I drove up there for a training class and carried a Hog coffin to load up with Sausages and Frankfurters. Then this year we moved into a new house and I place a order to help fill up my Freezer. But as you say can't go wrong with Wis. Sausages or cheese, or the ultimate Chocolate Cheese Fudge. :blush:
  • nice looking cook, I'd eat em :woohoo:
  • Ben where is that serbian place?
  • Chef's Corner in Naperville.

    It's a tiny place. Only two or three tables inside, picnic tables out in the yard (literally a yard, the place was obviously a home at one point) during the summer. It's not specifically a Serbian restaurant, but the owner seems to be from central or eastern Europe, and his cevapi is one of the best things on the menu. He also does a couple soups every day, and used to have wonderful frozen custard (he actually was a customer of a friend of mine, who owns Meadowvale), but for the last year, he has been without his ice cream machine, and has switched to gelato, instead. It's not as good as his custard was.

    The chef used to be chef at the United Center, and has all kinds of pictures on the wall with former Bulls players and execs. He's a really nice guy.
