Grilled Sausages with Riesling-Mustard, Kraut and Poppy Buns
4 bratwurst or Polish sausage
3 tablespoons butter or olive oil
1/2 onion, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup Riesling or other white wine
1 (16 ounce) package refrigerated sauerkraut, rinsed
1/4 teaspoon each: salt, freshly ground pepper
4 poppy seed or other buns
Heat outdoor grill, stovetop grill pan or broiler. Cut lengthwise almost through each sausage; open up. Grill, turning often with tongs, until cooked through and browned, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the butter in a large skillet. Add onion; cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mustard. Stir in the Riesling; cook to reduce slightly, about 2 minutes. Stir in sauerkraut, salt and pepper; heat through. Place cooked bratwurst in buns; top with sauerkraut.
