Caramelized and sweet, with simmering beer and onions, this Bratwurst recipe will take you straight to the famous October Fest.

So when fall festivities like sports events and Oktoberfest come alive, I’m pleased to prepare this classic, virtually every German – American picnic or sports day: German bratwurst sausages with onions with Wisconsin spin.

Using a heavy-bottomed skillet, on medium-high heat, melt down the butter.

Next, prepare the previously sliced onions and add to the pan

Place the bratwurst with the onions and cook

Add the bottle of ale and bring just to a boiling point.

Lower the heat to a simmer and cook for 35-40 min, flipping the brats from time to time.

Move the onions and beer broth to a dish and put them aside.

Brown the brats equally on all sides, adding a bit more butter or oil if required.

Pour the onions and beer broth back once again to the skillet and keep hot.

Serve Bratwurst sausages in a bun together with onions, or plate them as you prefer.
