There are two types of people: those who buy their beer brats from the store and those who make their own. Do yourself a favor and make your own. With Opening Day right around the corner, you need to do it right. Make these the night before and grill them up at the park. It's the only way to do it.
- 1 dozen brats
- Beer, to cover
- 1 medium large sweet onion
- 2 ounces (1/2 stick) butter
Place brats in a Dutch oven with onions and butter, cover the brats with beer. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer until brats are cooked. Remove brats and set aside beer mixture. Grill brats until golden brown and return to beer mixture until ready to serve. Serve brats on fresh baked brat buns with sauerkraut, onions, green peppers, ketchup, and/or mustard.
Why beer brats? Because as we all know, if there is one thing that makes everything better it's beer. Sweet, delicious beer.
