Turkey Bratwurst Served Over Wilted Spinach Salad

Turkey Braut and Spinach Salad

Turkey brats are great alternatives to their fatty, caloric contemporaries, beef and pork brats. Each Jennie-O Bratwurst has only 170 calories and is full of that delicious turkey flavor. Instead of serving these bratwursts on buns and slathered with condiments, increase the nutrition and decrease the caloric intake by serving it over a bed of fresh wilted spinach and walnuts – power foods!

Turkey Bratwurst Served Over Wilted Spinach Salad
  • 4 Turkey Bratwursts
  • 2 Bundles of Fresh Spinach
  • 2 Tsp Chopped Garlic
  • ¼ Cup of Chopped Walnuts
  1. Trim, wash, and dry two bundles of fresh spinach.
  2. Line a large sauté pan with olive oil spray. When heated, add two teaspoons of chopped garlic. Gradually add the two bundles of spinach to the pan; it’s an incredible shrinking vegetable. (Two bundles may seem like a lot, but it won’t be once wilted.) Cook just long enough; you don’t want to cook out all the nutrients.
  3. Remove from heat and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Top with a turkey bratwurst (grilled or sautéed) and serve.


For the perfect fall feast, pair this bratwurst with my recipe for Spiced Pumpkin Soup! Buen Provecho!
