Cook Beer Brats

Beer brats are made by simply cooking sausage in a beer and onion bath!

Beer Brats Recipe
Recipe type: Main Dish
  • 3-5 Brats or Sausages, with skins
  • 24-36 oz beer (whichever variety you prefer, but I wouldn’t recommend an expensive one since you won’t actually be drinking it)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Celery salt
  • Mustard (yellow or spicy brown mustard)
  • Buns
  1. Place brats or sausages in a pan or pot, pour in just enough beer to cover completely, toss in onions and bring to a boil, boil until brats are no longer pink (approximately 5-7 minutes) and onions are soft.
  2. Remove from pot, grill until brats are nicely browned (approximately another 5-10 minutes).
  3. Toast buns alongside on grill (if you so choose), place brat in bun, top with beer soaked onions, mustard and dash of celery salt.
  4. Serve & enjoy!
If you’re cooking for a large gathering adjust your numbers accordingly---the more brats the more beer and onions you’ll need and they may take a bit longer to boil and grill.
