For a brat fry


  • 16 ounces pilsener beer
  • 4 large onions, sliced thick
  • 2 tablespoons Polish mustard with horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 12 bratwursts in casings
  • 6 hard rolls


Bring beer to a simmer in a pan with 1 of the onions, the mustard, and ketchup. Add bratwurst and simmer about 20 minutes. Have your grill or broiler hot. Drain the bratwurst. Grill brats and remaining onion slices about 5 minutes on each side. Grill the split rolls quickly. Fork a pair of wurst onto each and top with onions. Serve with plenty of extra mustard and ketchup and beer.
