Cider Glazed Bratwurst with Butternut Mash

I get several food magazines in the mail every month, but I always tend to find more recipes that I want to make in the fall and winter month issues. I just really enjoy fall flavors. Like the apple cider glaze for the bratwurst in this recipe. The original recipe called to use chicken sausages, but I really like bratwurst and I thought the apple cider would give it a good flavor.
I was right, I really enjoyed the sweet flavor the apple cider gave the bratwurst. It was a great pairing with the butternut mash. Phil and I really enjoyed the mash. I always found it strange to add the apple with butternut squash, but it is a really good flavor combination. This was a great fall dinner. We will be filing this one away for sure!

Meanwhile in a medium saucepan combine squash, apple and potato. Cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until fork tender, about 15 minutes.

Drain vegetables and apple and transfer to a food processor. Process until smooth. Add yogurt and season with salt and pepper.
