Pumpkin Bratwurst On A Pita
This German dish is great to grill or cook on the stove top. When you eating a bratwurst you are biting into one of the oldest cooking techniques. The Apicus Cookery the first recorded cookbook from the Romans (approx. 228 AD) has recipes for brats! Written by Marcus Gavius Apicius who lived in Rome. No one knows who created bratwurst.
In America, this ancient dish has become a social food. In Wisconsin brat frys are like weekend BBQ’s in the south. Chef Frank really wanted to make this classic dish. Brats are a great meal, affordable meal to and there are many different flavors you can get (from pumpkin to spicy). We had pumpkin, it smells unbelievable when cooking. You can even boil them in beer.
Don’t forget the toppings; Different flavored mustards, onions, cheese, Sliced jalapeños, sauerkraut or kimchi. Just to mention a few of my favorites.
1 gyro shell
2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt
1 tsp mint leaves diced
2 Tbsp small diced cucumbers
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
Small handful of spinach
¼ cup diced tomatoes
¼ cup diced cucumbers

In a mixing bowl combine lemon juice, mint, cucumbers, and plain yogurt. Heat up a frying pan and cook the bratwurst until the inside registers 150 degrees. Rest on a cutting board. Warm the gyro shell in the oven for a min. Cut the gyro on a bias and layer the gyro accordingly.
