You will need
Bake the fries: Wash and rinse all produce. Turn on the oven to 430F. Line a baking sheet with a non-stick sheet or parchment paper. Peel the potatoes and cut into fry shape pieces, about 1 cm thick. Place the fries on the baking sheet. Drizzle with oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp), salt (1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp), and pepper (1 pinch, 1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp). Combine to ensure even coating and place an even layer to ensure the potatoes cook evenly. Bake in the oven about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are fully cooked and start to become golden. Keep the oven on to heat the buns.
Cook the sausage: Heat the BBQ to medium. Cook the bratwurst sausage for about 10 minutes, turning them halfway, or until they are fully cooked.
Cooking in a pan: Place the pan on medium heat and add oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp). Place the bratwurst sausage in the pan and bake on medium heat for about about 10-12 minutes or until fully cooked. Cover the pan to minimize oil splater.
Note: Ensure the bratwurst sausage are cooked to a minimal internal temperature of 160F.
Prepare the onions: Peel the onion and dice as small as possible – about 1/2 cm dices. The small dices ensure the onion flavour does not overwhelm the flavour of the sausage and other toppings.
Toast the buns: . Cut the buns and open them so the toast evenly. Once the bratwurst sausage have about 1 minute left to cook, place the buns face down on the BBQ grill. Ensure the buns are not directly exposed to the heat so they do not burn. Grill the buns for 30 seconds to 1 minutes.
Oven: Place the cut and open buns on the oven grill until they are toasted – about 1 minute.
Assemble and serve: Garnish each hot dog with sauerkraut, onion and mustard. Serve with a side of baked fries.
Dr. Herrington's Health Fact
Onions are high in the flavonoid quercetin, which has been found to improve allergy symptoms and reduce cancer risk. The sulfur compounds help lower blood pressure and prevent platelets from sticking together (which can reduce ones risk of a heart attack or stroke).
