I begin my bratwurst by cooking them in beer. Much like cooking with wine, use a beer that you would drink. Simmer the brats slowly- boiling will dry them out. Skim the foam off of the top as they cook.

When the brats are cooked, I like to cook some sliced onions in the beer to serve on top of the brats. My hubby doesn't like his onions cooked in beer, so I place some slices in foil with butter, salt and pepper. I put this on the grill when I light it and they are ready when the brats are done.

When your grill is heated, cook the brats over a medium flame. They won't take long (1-2 minutes per side at the most) since they are already cooked through. The grilling is just for additional flavor and color.

Serve topped with onions, mustard or creamy horseradish.
