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

Texas Custom Patios did an outstanding job. Justin came to my house and I explained to him what I wished to do, then came back and visited with me for the estimate. He presented to me a folder with a rendered photos of what the new patio cover would look like. I was amazed that he drew exactly what I was thinking about. He was very keen to accommodate all my requests, even taking over the pool coping job, which they usually don’t do, but did an awesome job. I contacted another company to get a different quote, but fortunately they were more expensive and far less professional. TCP was very diligent to make sure that my back yard still looked good through the job. The cover was done fast and professionally, and Justin always went that extra yard. I was really lucky that I contacted Texas Custom Patios. Highly recommended!
