Ingredients
  • 8 whole Bratwurst (uncooked, raw)
  • 1/2 cup Sauerkraut
  • 1/2 small onion , sliced thin
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1 bottle of beer (I used a lager)
  • 16 wooden skewers
Optional:
  • Mustard
  • Ketchup
Instructions
  1. Turn your grill on and heat to high. (When you place the brats on they should immediately sizzle.
  2. Char all sides, cooking for a total of 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally so that all sides brown.
  3. While brats are cooking, place grill safe pan (I use a skillet type pan) on one side of the grill to get hot.
  4. Toss sliced onions with olive oil and then place in the pan stirring often to heat and soften through.
  5. Once brats are browned, place brats on top of onions in pan, then pour beer over the top. Reduce heat to medium flame.
  6. Continue to cook brats for 15-20 minutes until cooked through out.
  7. Strain any beer (if any at all) and serve onions on the side for anyone who wants them.
  8. Taking 2 skewers per brat, insert skewers up through the bottom. Once all brats are skewered, slice diagonal slices about 1 inch apart down to where skewer is threaded through. (I use 2 skewers because I found eating the brat was easier with the added stability. If your skewers are thicker, you may want to use only one)
  9. Place Sauerkraut in each slice.
  10. Serve with mustard and or ketchup for dipping.
