Make Your Own Bratwurst

           Nothing beats a bratwurst that has been simmered in beer and then browned on the grill. if you love brats as much as my family does you might like this recipe for making your own homemade bratwurst at home. CopyCat has a recipe for making and stuffing your own bratwurst at home that you can then cook or freeze for later. This is a great way to make a large batch of bratwurst now while it is still cold outside and have them in the freezer all ready for grilling once summer gets here.

           If you are really craving a brat in the winter here is how I make them on the stove top and they are almost as delicious as making them on the grill.  Lay your brats in a skillet. (I use my cast iron) At medium heat pour a tablespoon of olive oil in the pan, this will crisp up the brat casing later. Then add  2 tablespoons of beer and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Over the medium heat let them simmer uncovered until the liquid is all gone. Once the liquid has cooked away the casings will start to brown in the olive oil. Turn them until all side are as browned as you like them.We love them on a bun with mustard and a little sauerkraut.

       Mmm so yummy and I really want to make my own because I think it will be less expensive that buying them and because I will know exactly what I put in them.
