Potatoes, Brats & Green Beans

I had some leftover brats.  Not enough to feed the entire gang, but enough to fill us if I sliced them up.  I also had something new to try out; some Tropical Traditions coconut oil.  I will be fiddling with it a lot this week and then next week, I will be hosting a giveaway, so you can try out this yummy stuff, too.

Anyway, this skillet meal is a fabulous way to use up those few extra brats that may be left after a barbecue.

Brat Potato Skillet:
(adjust your quantity to suit your family size; this served 8)
5 cooked brats, sliced thickly (about 5 slices per brat)
10 redskin potatoes
2 cans green beans, drained well
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 onion, diced
2 Tbsp oil (I used coconut, but you could use any)
1 tsp dried rosemary
salt & pepper
Quarter the red potatoes and boil until just done.  Drain completely.  Saute the onion in the oil.  Add the rosemary to the onion before it's completely cooked to release the flavors of the herb.  Toss in the green beans and bacon, warming through.  Add the potatoes and toss again.

Ok I'm going to sound really dumb here, but what are brats? I've always wondered what they were, we don't really have that (or maybe we do and I'm just completely unaware of what it is) here in NZ.

Other than that, this looks really yum!

This is the perfect way to stretch the meat a little bit farther! Can't wait to see what else you do with that coconut oil. I just got a jar but haven't used it yet!

This looks so simple and comforting. I love it. PS, I've been meaning to ask you, have you ever eaten at the restaurant Oregano's in AZ? It's unbelievably good... :)

I never heard of Brats before, but I'm assuming is a breakfast sausage, it looks yummy I love this combo potatoes and green beans.
