Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 2 teaspoons olive oil or butter, divided use
- 6 bratwurst sausages (see Note)
- 1 large sweet onion, sliced into 1/4-inch rings
- 6 ounces (half a can or bottle) beer (see Note)
To the drippings, add the remaining teaspoon of olive oil or butter and the sweet onion rings. Toss the onions to coat with the oil. Cook, stirring often, until onions are limp and golden but not brown.
Return the bratwurst to the onions and add the beer. Cook over medium heat, turning midway through, until beer has cooked down to a syrup, about 12 to 15 minutes.
Bratwurst may be served on buns with the onions or as an entree.
Yield: 6 servings
Note: Feel free to use this method with hot dogs, Italian sausage, knockwurst, or just about any link sausage. Dark beer gives a richer flavor, but a standard commercial lager will work just fine.
