Instructions

  1. Soak lentils in a large bowl or stockpot with enough water to cover for 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Drain and place in a large stockpot. Add bacon, onion, celery, carrots and 3 1/2 cups water. Bring to boil; cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
  3. When lentils are almost cooked, melt butter in a frying pan and fry bratwurst until brown. Remove and set aside.
