We here at Ronco always want to simplify your time in the kitchen. We believe that preparing and eating healthy, delicious food doesn’t mean you have to slave over the stove, oven or even grill. For this recipe, we used our indoor countertop grill; the Ready Grill, along with the optional Steamer Basket to create this Grilled Bratwurst with Steamed Dill Sauerkraut in just about 15 minutes.

As an added bonus, this recipe comes in at around 450 calories per 2 brat serving and 3/4 cup serving of sauerkraut… and is low carb.
