What You Need

  • 1 package Johnsonville Original Bratwurst Sausages
  • 6 large potatoes (2 pounds) - any preference, peeled and cubed
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 tbsps milk or cream
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 2 white onions, sliced
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 1 cup spinach
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven on low broil to keep warm. Cook sausages according to package instructions. Move to oven after cooking to keep warm.

  2. Place potatoes in large pot and cover with water. Boil on medium-high heat for 12-15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Drain water and let sit for 1-2 minutes. Add in 1/4 cup of butter, milk or cream, cream cheese and salt and pepper. Mash until smooth and even. Set aside while cooking gravy.

  3. Add remaining butter and onions to a pan, cooking over medium-high heat. Stir regularly for approximately 10 minutes or until onions are just starting to brown. Add broth and wine, and simmer for 10 minutes, or until liquid has been reduced by about half. Add spinach and cook for another 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Plate 1-3 sausages with desired amount of mashed potatoes (approximately 1/2 to 1 cup) and gravy.
