Our Oktoberfest Brats are a summertime staple on the grill so when we were asked to provide a “healthier” alternative, we know we had our work cut out for us. Oktoberfest Brats are so moist and flavorful that we weren’t sure what would happen when we tried to reduce the fat and calories but the final product is fantastic.
Many of you have tried turkey brats that are made with a blend of turkey and pork and found them a bit too dry, especially when made on the grill. Our new Garden Medley Turkey Brat and Tomato Basil Turkey brat are made from a blend of white and dark turkey to make it 90% lean. This means they stay moist- even if you like them charred!
These new brats are just 180 calories each with 9 grams of fat, compared to 270 calories and 27 grams of fat in the traditional Oktoberfest brat. This is great news for those of us who are counting our calories!
