Wisconsin Beer Brats

Back to Sausages, Brats & Dogs

from Nick C. in Green Bay, WI

1pkg Brats (prefer Johnsonville or Usinger's brand)
6-8 cans of the cheapest beer you can find but still stomach to drink (so you can drink the rest of the 12 pack) I prefer Blatz
1 chopped white Onions
3-4 Tablespoons of butter
inced Garlic or Garlic Powder

On the stove in a pot, add the cans of beer, 3/4 chopped onion, minced garlic (add to your liking), and the butter. Turn on low/medium heat. Add the brats and make sure that they are fully covered by the liquid. If they are not covered, add more beer.

Simmer on low to medium heat for 1 hour minimum. (do not boil).

Heat the charcoal grill.

Take the brats from the beer mixture and cook them on the grill turning them frequently until they are golden brown .. In the mean time continue to have the beer mixture on low heat.

Once the brats are done cooking, place them back in the beer mixture until you are ready to serve.

Serve them on a hard roll or hot dog bun. Top with mustard, ketchup, and raw onion (left over from what you cut)

Go Badgers, Packers and Brewers!
