Bratwurst Bath

Ingredients

1 aluminum foil baking pan

1 stick butter

3 to 4 bottles (12 ounces) beer

2 medium yellow onions, sliced

1 pound container sauerkraut, drained

12 to 16 bratwursts

12 to 16 bratwurst buns or hard rolls

Mustard

Directions

  1. Place the foil pan on the grill over indirect heat. Add beer, kraut, butter, and onions. Cook until the onions are soft.
  2. At the same time, grill the brats over low-to-medium direct heat.
  3. When the bratwursts are done, put them directly into the foil pan “bath.”
  4. Serve bratwursts on buns with sauerkraut, onions, and mustard on top.

The Bratwurst Bath works equally well on a grill (indirect heat), in an oven (250 degrees), or in a slow cooker (on “Warm”). Prepare the bath mixture and grill the bratwursts ahead of time (even the night before), then simply combine everything and reheat it to serve.

Our Customers Love Us

I have a lot of experience with construction and renovations, so some contractors find me annoying at best. My outdoor living project was larger than I was able to take on as it entailed adding an outdoor living area, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom with a fireplace and fire pit. It’s built onto an existing structure with a tile roof in a seamless manner. The completed project is amazing, and was featured in the Houzz project of the month for December 2013. It was a very large project so it took a long time to complete, however the process was absolutely painless. In my previous experiences, I have always had issues with miscommunications and added costs, among other things. My experience with Texas Custom Patios included NONE of these issues. The finished project far exceeded my expectations. The workmanship was superior, and the quality of the products is top of the line. I truly highly recommend them.
