Yeah I know, real Oktoberfest is in late Sep but we had to do it. This dinner had couple of twists that we found when we were in Denver a few weeks ago. We started off with some bratwurst that had cheese in the casing. I boiled them fist in beer and then grilled them outside to give them a nice brown and crispy outside. They were ok, we like the traditional bratwurst better. The cheese did nothing for them. Lauri did a couple of unique things with this dinner. Have you ever had mashed potatoes with sauerkraut mixed in? Awesome! I am no fan of the kraut but wow it really made the potatoes pop. Another treat we ran into in Denver was a sauerkraut, swiss and pastrami eggroll. Yes, eggroll. Dipped in a good mustard and again, awesome. To go with this German dinner we found some Spatan Dunkel at the store. That just toped it off nicely. Can you say full?
