This is a GREAT way to prepar brats! I made these as part of our 4th of July barbeque buffet and everyone loved them. The beer gives the brats a wonderful flavor and onion-loving DH was in onion heaven! :) I especially like the fact that these can be made ahead of time- more time to mingle with friends. Thanks for posting this, Connie- it's a winner!
I would give this recipe more stars if I could. I made it for Super Bowl Sunday, with the only change being that I put the brats and onions on a bed of sauerkraut before adding the last can of beer and simmered in the crockpots all afternoon. I was told by several people at the party that they were the best brats they had ever eaten. This is definetly a keeper in my book. Thanks!
Very good brats! I also put these on a bed of sauerkraut in crockpot. Will make again.
Delish make ahead brats! I did slightly carmelize the onions- and they added great flavor. After grilling, I put the brats, onions, and 1 bottle of beer in the crock pot on warm and they held nicely for the party. Thanks!
Boy I am sure glad I picked this recipe to serve for our Annual Euchre BBQ...they turned out fabulous and it started raining and did not have to worry....got many compliments on the brats..
My husband made these and we really liked them! We ate them for several days as we had leftovers. Thanks!
I love this recipe. I've made it twice, in big batches - for our annual Fall party - and it gets rave reviews and requests for the recipe. Being able to make the brats the day before and re-heat in the beer and onions is a great option and time-saver, and the brats just get better and better the longer they are in the beer bath. Thanks!
Even though I'm from WI... I've never made brats myself (always have at other ppl's cookouts) so I searched and found yours! This is soooo good! I'll be making this again and again all season long!
thanks connie - i grew up in 'johnsonville' and have always wondered how my parents did this! tastes just like i remember!
This is just what I have been looking for. We have a slew of company coming for Labor Day and this should keep the whole gang happy. Thank you for the tip.
