Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large stock pot add onions, butter, beer, and pepper. Prick bratwurst with a fork to keep them from exploding while they cook. Simmer over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grates. When grill is hot, add bratwurst and grill for 10-14 minutes turning often for even browning.
  3. Place in hoagie rolls, add additional onion and serve immediately.

This was so good. Served it up with a little German hot mustard, and the onion and it was a great hit!

This was fantastic. My husband NEVER eats onions in anything. I talked him into trying the onions I cooked with the bratwurst last night, and surprisingly, he said they were 'ok.' Next thing I know, he had piled them up on his sandwich. He even packed the leftovers with his lunch the next day. Too bad I only halved the recipe (thinking he would pass on the onions), I would have loved to have some myself, lol. Great recipe for Bratwurst too! I used Michelob Ultra Amber because that is what we had. I only used one, 12 ounce beer for five Bratwursts, and halved the rest of the recipe (since there are only 2 of us). This will be on the menu for our 1st spring cookout this year! Thanks!
