Swedish Baked Sausage

We really love German cuisine in our home, it is often very simple to make (which is always a plus) and the flavors are wonderful. I have a cookbook given to me from a dear German friend of mine and every recipe I have made from that book has quickly become a house favorite. This particular recipe is referred to as being Swedish but you will find variations of this dish being served in many homes across Germany, I did change it up a bit and I loved the results. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!

Swedish Baked Sausage 
3-4 potatoes, washed and cubed
1/2 onion, finely diced
1/2-1 tsp. caraway seeds
1 tsp. dried parsley
4 Tbsp. butter, sliced thinly
3 bratwurst sausages
1-2 C. chopped broccoli
1-2 Tbsp. mustard
1/3-1/2 C. breadcrumbs
3/4 C. grated Parmesan

-Heat oven to 375 F, grease an 8x11" or 9x13" baking dish
-Heat a medium skillet over medium heat

1. Add potatoes and onion to baking dish, toss well, season with salt, pepper, and caraway seeds. Top with half of the sliced butter. Place in oven and begin baking.
2. While the potatoes are baking place sausages in skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil if needed, cover and brown on both sides - about 10 minutes per side.
3. After 20 minutes remove potatoes from oven, stir well, season again with salt and pepper. Top with browned sausages, place chopped broccoli around sausages. Then, brush sausages with mustard. Top with breadcrumbs and Parmesan, remaining sliced butter, and sprinkle with just a bit more salt and pepper.
4. Bake for an additional 30 minutes, until cheese is browning and sausages are cooked. Serve!
-Serves 3-4.

*If your sausages are a bit dry feel free to serve them with just a bit more mustard.*
