I did a little fusion, and added onion, cider, and some soaked, dried  
mushrooms and their soaking liquid. Also some chicken stock.

Ham hocks (or better yet, pigs' knuckles) would have been ideal, but I  
had none, so I put in two chunked fresh pig's feet and, later, some  
ham cut into ~1" cubes, and a little Polish kabanosy (this is a long,  
skinny smoked/dried sausage, flavored with pepper and garlic -- good  
for soups and such, but technically meant for eating out of hand).

The bratwursts were cooked separately and served on top.
