Rustic fare

As much as I adore to try all kinds of more or less exotic dishes I once in a while resort to a true swiss classic. Tried and tested, those dishes never fail to please. And the Boyfriend certainly enjoys a "normal" dinner now and then, such as

Bratwurst with onion and white wine sauce (serves 2)

  • Some good-quality ground meat sausage
  • some oil for frying
  • 2 red onions, cut into fine slices
  • one small apple, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 dash of curry powder
  • one glass white wine
  • salt and pepper
Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the sausage until nicely browned on all sides. Add the onions to the pan and fry them over a low heat, stirring frequently until softened and browned. Add the apple and curry powder, fry for another minute, season with salt and pepper, then add the white wine. Cover the pan and cook everything over a low heat until the onions and the apple are very soft. Serve with sauerkraut and bread. Or mashed potato if you think your stomach might be overwhelmed with onions and sauerkraut.

In case you wonder why there is curry powder in a traditional swiss recipe - there wouldn't be, that's just me. And the apple isn' t traditional either. There is nothing I can say in my defence.
