Grilled Bratwurst in Beer

Brats and beer are a hearty, tasty combo that's hard to beat. Try this easy recipe for your Memorial Day cookout (you can multiply it as needed), and it's also great for tailgating.

1 lb bratwurst
12 oz bottle or can of beer (I use a good German beer for best flavor)
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
1 green bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
Hot dog or bratwurst buns
1 can German style sauerkraut
Mustard (I use Scorned Woman Mustard)

Place a foil pan in the middle of your grill's cooking grate. Pour the beer into the pan, then add the sliced onions and peppers. Start the grill and get it to medium heat. Grill the brats on the cooking grate, beside the pan with the onions and peppers, turning to lightly brown all sides. Using tongs, place the browned bratwurst in the pan and let them cook for another 25 minutes,turning occasionally. While the brats are cooking, pour the sauerkraut into another pan and heat on the grill grate, stirring occasionally to heat through. When the bratwurst is done and the peppers and onions are soft, serve the cooked brats in the buns topped with peppers, onion and sauerkraut, and garnish with mustard.

Zestfully yours,

PS: If you want a seriously hot mustard to spread on the bratwurst, I recommend Dave's Insanity Mustard
