Garry Tarpley we haven’t cooked any links yet, but we sampled the meat left in the stuffer and the single blowout. I would say the flavor is more like a breakfast sausage than what I would consider a brat.
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?
