It’s sunny and 50 degrees here in Northern Iowa! That means that we all pretend like it’s a hot summer day! I guess it’s time to break out the grill!
Today, I made cider boiled brats for lunch. These brats were better than usual. I don’t know if I just got really good brats, or if it’s because I poked them before boiling them in cider, but they turned out really good!
Last summer, I discovered Hard cider. In my post, 7 ways to showcase Hard Cider, I briefly told you how to boil brats in hard cider instead of beer. Well, I decided it was time to show you!
Boiling Brats in Hard Cider is a great way for gluten-free folks to enjoy brats. And, do you know what? I think I prefer these cider boiled brats over the beer boiled ones.
I poked the brats before boiling them because I wanted to achieve maximum cider flavor! I put 8 brats in a pan with 2 bottles of hard cider and boiled them for 14 minutes.
Afterwards, I grilled the brats.
I don’t know exactly what it was about the cooking process, but these brats were so moist and so sweet! I topped my brat with yellow mustard, well, because I am obsessed with yellow mustard.
I highly suggest you try boiling your brats in Hard cider this summer! It will be a great way to switch up your grilling rotation!
Have you ever tried grilling your brats in a different liquid?
