Potatoes

I love fingerlings. The shape, the flavor, how quickly they cook up. What is not to love? Fingerlings are an actual variety of potatoes. They get their name from they shape which is long and slender much like a finger. Their flesh tastes rich, nutty, and buttery. The flesh of fingerling potatoes is also firmer and hold up very well during cooking. Not to mention, they are delicious! However, if you do not have fingerlings available to you you may swap in baby red or gold potatoes which have a similar texture.

Bratwurst

Today brats come in many flavors. You can opt for any flavor such as pineapple, bacon, or cheese. I am blessed with friends that are pork farmers who offer a variety of brats. I have to take a moment to drool over these brats. Until I tried one of their brats, I was not a fan of brats. I found them to be bland and too dry. Then I meant The Millers and was challenged to try one. OMG! Rich in flavor, juicy, mixed in with bacon, cheddar, jalapeno…you name it they probably have it. If you have been to one of our summer markets you probably meant The Millers and have enjoyed one of their many products. If you haven’t check them out here. Today I am using their Maple Bacon Brats. The flavor of the maple is the perfect compliment to the dish. WARNING: Sit a few feet away from any dinner quest as I have  been squirted with brat juice more than once. They are that juicy. YUM!

  1. Love me brats or sausages of any kind. Add the cabbage and it’s a perfect dinner… I don’t know why it is such a difficult thing to find fingerling potatoes over here, though. I have been very unsuccessful at finding any! I shall keep on looking though. I know you said I could substitute but yanno… they do look so delicious…

    1. Look for “The Little Potato Company” if a grocery store doesn’t provide them as part of their produce section they might have a small stand with packaged potatoes. The Little Potato Company often uses fingerlings. Just throw out the seasoning pack, or put it aside for another recipe. Cuz, I getcha! Substitutes are fine and all, but these little tators are too fine.

      1. No, no… We don’t have little stands. But I might know which store could have them. I’ll be walking there are lunch and shall have me a look-see! They often have the little round red or yellow but have yet to spot the fingerlings. 🤞
