Bratwurst & Bacon Skillet

I am a HUGE fan of one dish meals.  Typically my Sunday of cooking will yield at least two dishwasher loads and sometimes three.  The weeks that I can get everything cooked and only have one load of dishes to unload is like a I've hit the jackpot.  

I know these ingredients don't sound like they all go together, but amazingly once you cook them all you get a tasty, hearty meal with just a bit of kick.   The mushrooms really fill it out and the tomatoes make it not all boring and light colored.  

Life has been really hectic lately, so I haven't had much to say.  I am impressed enough to get my recipes cooked and posted!
