Hi Immaoana,,
Sounds really good! Thank you for sharing.

Since stationed in Germany in the 70's, I haven't
been able to stand American Brats. Who/where do you
get yours from?

Germans had Brat stands outside our bases. Grease
and culinary heaven! I think the Brats were made
fresh that day. Add a little sauerkraut and that
special German mustard, oh my ...

"Itsy, bitsy bits of raw garlic or garlic powder"?
Tell me it isn't true! There is no such thing as too
much Garlic! :-)

You are right.
I should have written LOTS OF "itsy, bitsy bits of raw garlic".

Lively group you got here :-(

I think the problem is that it has to be made fresh.

This group is pretty low volume.

These guys are much more verbose:

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/forum7.html

They are Paleo, so not targeted directly at
Diabetics, but a lot of Diabetics are Paloe,
such as myself. It gets you to drug free pretty
quickly.

Here is a famous drug free Diabetic Paleo:
Diabetes Management from a Paleolithic Perspective
http://www.diabetes-warrior.net/

Here is his before and after:
http://www.diabetes-warrior.net/about-me-and-diabetes/

If drugs and carbs are the route you have decided
to go, the American Diabetes Association has
a lively cooking group, but they are way, way too high
carb for me -- I'd start losing body parts!

I love your recipe. Maybe I will try Trader Joe's
Brats again. Stopped last year as the meat tasted
a bit off (rancid) to me. We have a local sausage
factory that does the fresh, but they cram them full
of chemicals -- MSG, Nitrates, etc.. (Paleo's go for
home grown, local grown, organic, and/or as natural
as you can get it without obsessing on it.)

Welcome to the group. Maybe I will see you on the
Paleo groups as well. Let me know if you need to know
the herbs for T2, I have a list. Won't help you
though, if you are not low carb.

Funny story: I washed my Brussels sprouts frying them.
They exploded all over my kitchen! You live and learn!
(You also grab a lid really quickly.)
