This is because, to Dustin's mind, casseroles are nasty, icky things that are made of inedible. Never mind that the Kolcannon is also, technically, a casserole, and is quite good. Anyway! He wanted me to do something with some bratwurst that he brought home without me, so I kept forgetting about it. I didn't even know how much of it there was, but he wanted it to last "for a while". I nosed around in a German/Eastern European cookbook for a while, until such time as I had an idea or two, and then chatted with a friend who also cooks, and he gave me more ideas.

Here's the result.

Slice six fairly large potatoes about 1/4" thick, and boil until reasonably soft. While this is going on, cook six bratwurst in either cider vinegar or hard cider, until done. Also fry about half a pack of bacon. put the whole lot from the sausage into a bowl, cider and all. pat out the bacon on paper towels, but leave the grease in the pan. Slice the bacon (easiest to use scissors for this) into pieces about 1/4" wide, and put into that pan three onions sliced into eighths, and one large granny smith apple, cut into 1/4" thick slices. Fry until more or less golden, and scrape any leftover bacon from the pan into the mix. It's yummy. put all this into the bowl of meat, and mix together. keep a few pieces of onion and apple out if you like for the top. when the potatoes are done (should be about now) mix the whole bowl of meat and fried vegetation into it with some cider vinegar (I think it was between half a cup and a full cup, but I just dumped it in until it smelled good), and pat into a large glass casserole. Grate enough cheddar over top (or just slice it, if you're feeling lazy) to cover it nicely, put the saved out onions and apples on that, and bake at 350o for about 15 minutes. Serve with hard cider. Mmmmmm.

It might be good with pepper, but as Dustin doesn't like pepper, there isn't any in this. It made one large glass dish, and one small 9x9 dish.

Really, I did just want a salad. This is so very not healthy, but god is it good.
