    Catte Nappe's Note:

    DH took me to an Austrian themed restaurant and, as we perused the menu, the table next to us was served. He immediately said "I'll have what they are having!" Unfortunately they were having the last available servings of a house special. He was crushed. The "house" wasn't into sharing their recipe. Just based on "eye-balling" the dish I came up with this, which got the DH seal of approval. Serve with boiled new potatoes, steamed cabbage or spiced red cabbage. We like Baked Latkes #48494 and Dill Green Beans #7767 with this.

      I made this for my husband who must have been German in a previous life. The highlight of any Disneyworld trip is his eating at the German restaurant, if you can imagine that. Well, the verdict....he loved it. He had a glazed look about him while eating. I'll bet he was imagining himself in German food-lust land singing oom-pah in all his glory.

      This was AMAZING!! I followed the recipe exactly. I only have 1 regret....and that is that I didn't double the recipe LOL My family LOVED it and were a little bummed out that there were no leftovers. This will defiantly become a regular at my house. Best of all it is so EASY. Thank you so much for posting this recipe :)

      This was absolutely TDF!!!! Omg! We just LOVED this!! I've had brats (etc.), many times cooked in beer, and frankly didn't care for them so much. They always tasted WAY too strong of beer, and I love beer! So when I saw THIS recipe, I couldn't wait to try it! And SO GLAD I did!!! The amounts were SPOT ON. Not too much beer so that it over powers, and a wonderful amount of mustard! (I used Gulden's Spicy Brown.) I used a 16 oz. (1 lb.) pkg. of Knockwurst (5) and it worked perfectly. Followed the recipe to a TEE and would not change a thing! Served it piled high in hoagie rolls. Thanks so very much! FINALLY a sausage recipe that I love! Made for the Spring PAC 2009. :)
