Notes

  • This brat casserole starts with uncooked brats.
  • Leave the potato peels on the potatoes, if desired. Just be sure to wash well. 
  • Regular tomato juice or Bloody Mary Mix could be used instead of v8.
  • Substitute flavored bratwurst for original, if desired.
  • To make this more of a bratwurst soup, add more v8 to the recipe to thin it out.
  • This tastes great as leftovers; consider making it ahead and serving later.
