A surprising twist on a bratwurst that doesn't involve a grill or beer, and is great for cold days.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rub the defrosted brats with the garlic and leave it stuck to the brats.
  2. Lay the brats in the bottom of a foil lined pan, leave enough foil on the sides to tent it over the brats later.
  3. Quarter the onion and apple and spread the pieces out over the brats.
  4. Sprinkle the pepper over the whole thing and seal the foil over the top.
  5. Bake in a 350 oven for an hour.

I was dying to eat some bratwursts, but I don't have a grill, so I was glad to find this recipe. It was absolutely delicious! I've made it twice and have some tips: (1) The amount of garlic is good, don't think it's too much. (2) I chose to use less pepper; as written, it's a bit strong. (3) Intersperse the apple, which you want to cut into smaller slices, and onion with the brats. Don't layer the onions on top; they won't take in the brat flavor. This recipe is wonderful and is now a staple for me!

Tasted great! Instead of baking for an hour, I placed the foil packet into my crock pot after lunch. No mess supper that stayed warm for staggered eating. I think I'll try it with Italian sausage next time.

So good! I made this with pears instead of apples for my roommate and I. We both really enjoyed it!<br/> Tip: I think this has been said before, but keep it covered for only about half of the time. It improves the color if the foil is removed after that.
