Brats Cooked in Butter, Beer and Onions

Brats on the left, Italian sausage on the right. When it comes to fixing a "guy meal" Beer Brats would have to rank high on the list. They take a little more time and effort than slapping a pack of hot dogs on the grill; but your taste buds will think it was time well spent. 

The other night Andy fired up both a pack of brats and Italian sausage. The sausage went down uncooked and required extra time on the grill to cook thoroughly. We like to fix oven baked fries or eat them with a good salad to round it out.

I like to load mine up with mustard, onions (raw or cooked), and red sweet pepper relish on a brat bun. Andy substitutes plain yellow mustard with Beer and Brat Horseradish Mustard we find in the refrigerated section at Publix. It's definitely a manly condiment as that stuff will knock the breath out of you! He loves it though.
Bring 1 12 oz. can of beer, a stick of butter and 1 medium onion to a boil in a medium saucepan.

Drop in 1 pack (5) brats.
Cook for about 10 minutes.
Place on a hot grill.

Turn on all sides until cooked through. The Italian sausage needs to cook an additional10-15 minutes as it was placed on the grill in the raw. The extra prep steps are worth it in our opinion. The brats get a good start on cooking; the outside develops a nice color without having to overcook them to ensure they're done.
