Week 5-Alcohol

6 Feb

I made brats for week 5! Followed a recipe from mantestedrecipes and Oh. My. Stars. This recipe was the easiest I’ve ever followed and OH, so yummy. This week’s theme was alcohol. I’ve cooked with wine before, but couldn’t taste a difference. I definitely  tasted the beer in the brats recipe.


3 – 4 cans of American Domestic beer (Coors(R) or Bud(R))

1 packet of JOHNSONVILLE(R) Brats (or any other quality Brat)

1 – 2 cups of BROWN sugar

2 large onions

(I used 1.5 cups of brown sugar and Bud Light)

DIRECTIONS- Bring the beer to a boil in a large cooking pot. Slice the onions and put them and the BROWN sugar into the cooking pot. Stir and let the pot bubble away until the sugar melts and the onions start to go brown and soft. Put in the Brats for about 10 – 15 minutes, making sure they are covered.

swimming in beer, onions, and brown sugar!


When they are cooked, put them on the grill (medium heat)until they are brown all over. These sausages taste better if they are slow cooked and constantly rotated. As such, tend them at this stage. When they are nicely browned, put them back in the beer/onion/sugar and let simmer for 5 – 10 more minutes.



Super tasty. Two thumbs up from everyone who had one. They’re good with mustard or with nothing at all. The flavor from the beer, sugar, and onions was amazing. I can already tell this is going to be a summer favorite for the grill!
