Product Review by Myra Charleston

Sugar Maple Emu Farm Brats

Wisconsin is famous for its Brats and these are no exception.

I've been cooking for over 40 years and I can count the times a man has come up to me after a meal and asked where I got a particular food item on one hand.  No, this does not mean I'm a bad cook, it means that their wives already shop in the same stores.

In each of the five instances I'm referring to, the product in question was the same - emu brats from Sugar Maple Emu Farm.  Containing heart healthy emu, 20% lean pork and just the right amount of seasonings, they gain attention every time they are served.

At cook-outs, these are a wonderful heart healthy alternative to the usual mystery meat hot dog and are loved by all ages.  They cook quickly, but remain juicy and flavorful. They are sold in one pound packages that contain five brats.

Here are a couple of non-BBQ suggestions for enjoying the brats:

Beans 'N Brats

  • 2 (28-oz) cans Bush's Country Style Baked Beans
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 package Sugar Maple Emu Farm Garlic Brats

Mix the beans, molasses and brown sugar.  Arrange the brats in a large Pyrex baking dish.  Pour the beans over the brats. 

Bake at 350° F for 30 - 45 minutes.

Serves 6.

Wisconsin Cheese and Brat Fondue

  • 1 TBSP butter or margarine

  • 1 tsp. cornstarch

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 cup white table wine

  • ˝ pound gruyere cheese, grated coarsely

  • ˝ pound aged Swiss cheese, grated coarsely

  • 1 tsp. white pepper

  • Grated nutmeg

  • ˝ pound cooked emu brat

  • 1 loaf French Bread

Melt butter in heavy chafing dish or in skillet on stove and press garlic clove in it.  Remove garlic and slowly add white wine alternating with the grated cheeses.  As cheese melts add more cheese and wine until all is dissolved.  Add cornstarch and white pepper, stirring constantly until ready to serve. 

Cut French bread and brats so that each bite-size piece has crust casing on it.  Dip and eat.
