ruppy41 For a bratwurst seasonings to start with I would simply use the Swiss Style Bratwurst Seasoning and then add the desired amount of mushrooms or mushroom powder like Joe Hell said (beautiful pictures by the way!). You could certainly do worse than taking his advice on sauteeing them prior to adding them in with the meat. To keep it swiss I would also recommend adding swiss hi temp cheese and as Joe Said 1lb to 10 lb is a good starting point, you can increase or decrease from there.
Adding Pineapples to brats
So I am making some of the Supreme Pizza Brats with chicken thighs. Can I add some pineapple tidbits to the mixture and use the pineapple juice or apple juice in place of the water?
harpo79 Using pineapple chunks/juice can be a bit touchy as it contains a enzyme that denatures protein and makes binding difficult. You will find bromelain, which is in pineapple in most meat tenderizers because of this, it is why your mouth sometimes gets sore after eating lots of pineapple, if it breaking down the lining in your mouth!
If you are going to add pineapple I would used dehydrated chunks and you will want to eat them quickly, don’t try to store them for future use, only make as much as you are planning on eating right away.
Anyone else have any input or advice?
