Fall Bratwurst With Apples and Onions

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by DarkLove

Even though the recipe says you can use non alcoholic beer I think that real beer has a better flavor. Remember when you cook that the heat dissipates the alcohol.

These were the best Brats we have ever eaten. I used the new Miller Chill beer for a little something different. We didn't like the caraway seeds and probably won't be using them the next time we make it.
