Country Bratwurst Potato Chowder is Perfect for Rainy Days

Have you ever gotten some brats out of the freezer, only to have your picnic or backyard barbeque rained out?  Or like me, maybe it started to snow?  Or maybe you’re just tired of the same old grilled brats.   Well, Country Bratwurst Potato Chowder is a reimagined potato chowder that will knock your socks off.  Creamy and savory, Country Bratwurst Potato Chowder will fill you up and your family will love it.

What Brats to Use with Country Bratwurst Potato Chowder?

I buy my brats at a little family run store that makes their own by hand.  They have six to eight flavors, depending on the day you shop.  This time, I used Italian brats (not sausage…the flavor is slightly different) for a spicy flavor.  The bacon cheddar brats are also amazing in Country Bratwurst Potato Chowder.  I opted to stay away from the wonderfully sweet Hawaiian brats, thinking the pineapple and brown sugar flavor would probably not be as savory as I was looking for.  Use a brat you love and you will have an amazing Country Bratwurst Potato Chowder.
