Feeding a Crowd

Cheesy Brat Stew to Make together


Frogtown Farm Harvest Festival 2016 Recipe from a Face Painted College Student

A Meal to Cook as a Community: community cooking can often allow for a place to learn and grown. It is a space to share stories and thoughts. In the interview, this is what she stated she wanted to do. She wanted to interact with the people in her community more to learn about them. No better way to connect with people than to connect through food!

This recipe comes from a family cookbook that my family often makes together. This is one of the recipes that taught me the basics of cooking and the importance of cooking with others.

Cheesy Brat Stew:


6 brats cut into 1-inch pieces or meat of choice

4 medium size potatoes cut into cubes

15 oz can of green beans

1 small onion

1 cup of grated cheddar cheese or American cheese

1 can of cream of mushroom soup

1 cup of water

How to: Place meat into large skillet or pan to brown. Add the rest of the ingredients. Cover and cook on low heat for 30 min or until potatoes are done.  
Do this together! Split these task up into groups to allow people to participate in a group of people! Allocate certain things to people so they can learn new cooking tasks and allow for community building.  

This college student wants to be able to have community cooking meals to connect with others in the community and also to be able to learn new ways to cook.

This recipe is one that taught me how to cook for me and other people as well. This is why I wanted to share this recipe with people because it is something that helped me grow as a cook while cooking with others.
