1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Half fill a large saucepan with water and bring it to the boil over high heat. Put the bratwurst into the boiling water and cook them for 15 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove the bratwurst from the pan. Allow them to drain on kitchen
paper towels and then slice them into ½ inch pieces.
In a large frying-pan, melt the butter over moderate heat. When the foam subsides add the bratwurst slices to the pan and brown them well on all sides for
about 10 to 15 minutes.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl beat the sour cream, flour, salt and pepper together with a wire whisk until they are well blended.
Pour the sour cream mixture into the frying-pan. Reduce the heat to low and, stirring constantly, heat the sour cream
sauce thoroughly without letting it come to the boil. If the sauce is too thick, add 1 to 2 spoonfuls of boiling water.
Turn the bratwurst and sour cream sauce into a warmed serving dish and sprinkle with parsley.
