Well this dish isn't going to win any awards for looks, but FLAVOR you betcha! Sweet and savory this is the perfect fall meal. Roasted Brats with Caramelized Rosemary Pears is a quick, and easy weeknight go to meal. I found this recipe on the back of the Costco brand Bratwurst a few months ago, and couldn't wait to try it once there was a crispness in the air.
  • 2 Packages of Bratwurst
  • ½ Stick Butter
  • 4 Pears, sliced thin
  • 3 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
  • ½ cup Maple Syrup
  • Salt to Taste
  1. In a large skillet or on the BBQ cook the Bratwurst until golden brown and cooked through. Set aside on a plate to allow the juices to redistribute.
  2. After the Bratwursts are done use the same pan and add the butter and sliced pears. You can use whatever pears you prefer. Core and slice the pears. I would recommend them being slightly firm as they are easier to slice. I used a mandolin, but you can easily use a knife.
  3. Sauté the pears and butter for about 10 minutes; then add the fresh rosemary sprigs cooking an additional 5- 10 minutes until caramelized.
  4. While the pears are finishing up slice the bratwurst diagonally into 5 pieces each; then add the brats and maple syrup into the pan with the pears. Cook an additional minute to allow all the flavors to blend together. Salt to taste, and voila you have a simple meal of Roasted Brats with Caramelized Rosemary Pears!
