Mustard 'N Beer Brats

No recipe image available.A simple, beer-spiked mustard sauce makes a winner of these grilled brats.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 fully-cooked bratwurst sausages
1/2 cup beer
4 tablespoons brown sugar, firmly packed
3 to 4 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
6 hoagie or hot dog buns, split
Butter or margarine, softened
Condiments: Pickle relish, chopped onion, mustard, ketchup (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.
  2. Prepare fully-cooked brats by cutting four 1/4-inch deep slits across each bratwurst.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine the beer, brown sugar and mustard. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Add the bratwurst, reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove bratwurst from the beer-mustard sauce, reserving the sauce.
  4. Place bratwurst on preheated grill and brush generously with reserved beer-mustard sauce. Grill, turning once, and again brushing with beer mixture, until bratwurst are nicely browned, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, spread cut-sides of the hoagie or hot dog buns with butter and grill until buns are lightly toasted.
  6. Serve brats with pickle relish, chopped onion, mustard and ketchup, as desired.

Makes 6 sandwiches.
