Sauerkraut – Place red cabbage, apple, onion and brown sugar in a medium size saucepan. Add ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar, water, salt & black pepper and bring to boil over a medium heat. Reduce heat, cover pan and simmer until cabbage is tender, stirring occasionally.

Bratwurst – In a large saucepan add bratwurst, beer, beef broth, peppercorns and cloves. Simmer mixture over a low heat for 30 minutes. Remove bratwurst from the liquid and grill on a medium to high heat until brown on both sides.

Mustard Hollandaise Combine the remaining apple cider vinegar, egg yolks and mustard in a heatproof bowl. Mix ingredients with a bar blender until smooth. Melt the butter in the microwave. Whilst blending, slowly stream clarified butter into the egg yolk mixture until thick.

Assembly – Soft poach eggs for 3 minutes. Toast New York Rye slices. Spread the sauerkraut over the toasted sourdough. Slice the bratwurst sausages at an angle and arrange over the sauerkraut. Gently place poached eggs on top and drizzle with the hollandaise sauce to serve.
