Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put your brats in a large pot and dump in the 2 beers, onion, season all and garlic powder.
  2. Add water until the brats are fully covered.
  3. Cook 20 minutes on medium heat, meanwhile, heat up your grill.
  4. Transfer your brats to the grill and cook 4-5 minutes on each side. Be careful not to pierce the brats with a fork or anything because this will let the good tasting juices out.
  5. Discard the beer & onion mixture.
  6. Place a slice of cheese in each hot dog bun and add your brats on top.
  7. Add desired condiments.

This was good, I used 2 cloves of crushed, fresh garlic instead of powder. I also used my George Foreman because I don't have an outdoor grill. I like that I can have beer brats AND cheddar brats at the same time. And that I can flavor it the way I like instead of how the company that makes the beer brats likes.

These were really good! I made them mostly as directed, except I finished them on a pan instead of a grill. I put them on wheat buns and added mustard. My boyfriend and I were very happy with the recipe. Thanks!

I'm not giving this any stars as I don't think we like brats. We had never eaten brats before. The store had them on sale so I thought I would give them a try. I made this exactly as written using Budweiser for the beer. No one liked these but again, I think we just don't like brats. I make sausage with onions and beer and we love that. I'm sure if you like brats, this is a wonderful recipe.
