Grilled Beer Brats

I can hardly wait for grilling weather. There is something about the smell of meat cooking on a grill, oye, it is so good. If you want to jazz up the standard brat, try out these delicious grilled beer brats. 

Grilled Beer Brats
Makes 6 servings

6 bratwurst
3 bottles beer
2 onions
hot dog buns

1. Prepare grill before starting.

2. In a large pot, add sliced onions to the bottom of the pot. Top with bratwurst and add beer. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove brats and onions. Discard liquid. Set aside onions if using. Transfer brats to grill. Grill several minutes on each side, or until done.

  1. Let the grilling begin, hubs is excited it'll save on heating costs to cook outside. I just think grilled food tastes better .)

    Same party new place .) Make & Share has a new home at HOMEmomMADE. I hope you can stop in next Saturday .)

  2. Source: my dad! Just kidding. This is how I grew up on brats. Everyone we knew made them this way. I'm always surprised to find some people don't do it like this. Most German-Americans seem to first boil them in beer and onions and then grill them, so I doubt there is a single "source." :) And the bonus of boiling them in beer? If you forget to thaw them out, you can boil them longer and get them cooked anyway.

  3. Hey my new blogging buddy... I just made these and posted my adaptation on my blog...
