Peach Grilled Brats with Yogurt-Mustard Spread
Tired of the same way of making brats? Whether it’s on the grill or not, this combination of fresh peaches, brats and tangy creamy yogurt mixed with whole grain mustard is a must. I was doubtful at first, but now this will be a regular at our house. The whole grain mustard has a milder flavor but more texture than regular mustard due to the whole mustard seeds. This is one combination worth trying.

- Grill* bratwursts, covered, over indirect medium heat until done (160º), 20 minutes, turning occasionally to brown evenly on all sides.
- Meanwhile, brush peach halves lightly with melted butter and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Place peaches, cut side down, on the outside of the grill rack over direct heat. Grill charred, about 5 minutes. Remove and chop. Brush buns with melted butter. Place, cut side down, on outside of grill rack until toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.
- In a small bowl stir together yogurt and mustard. Serve bratwursts in buns topped with yogurt-mustard spread and the peaches.
* If not grilling, the bratwursts can be browned in a fry pan and then cooked on medium heat in a cup of water in the fry pan until done (160º). Prepare the peaches the same but do not grill. The buns can be prepared the same except not grilled rather toasted in a toaster of under a broiler.

To reduce sodium content here are some suggestions: Do not add salt to peaches ( perhaps a salt substitute if you choose); try substituting a regular bratwrust at 722mg for a chicken bratwurst at 580mg for a turkey bratwrust at 460mg. Selecting one of these other types of bratwursts can also decrease the fat and calorie content.
