Although, we have had some pretty cold and rainy days lately here in Iowa, I am really looking forward to summer. In addition to holiday parties, family reunions and BBQ’s with friends- we grill out and eat outside as much as we can! It is so nice to be outside as a family as much as possible during those summer months.- Plus, when my two little son’s drop crumbs during dinner- clean up is SOOO much easier on the deck. ( because I let the birds have at it)
Memorial Day is right around the corner! Here is a recipe that will be impress your friends this summer holiday season! This recipe couldn’t be easier or tastier! Johnsonville original bratwurst are already packed with flavor and don’t need a lot of added ingredients.
I love this twist of using pretzel bread as a bun for bratwurst! I have had a burger with pretzel bread- but this was my first time using it with a brat.
In order to make Pretzel and Beer bratwurst, I purchased pieces of pretzel bread from my local grocery store’s deli department. Yet, I thought they contained a little too much bread for a bratwurst. I hollowed out each piece of pretzel bread with a spoon to make it into an easy pretzel bread bun.
I also boiled my bratwurst in beer and added caramelized onions as well. You can add any additional toppings you like.
Pretzel and Beer Bratwurst – Serves 5
1 package of Johnsonville original bratwurst
5 pieces of pretzel bread
2 bottles of your favorite beer
1 onion- chopped
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Mustard- and other condiments
Method: Prepare all your ingredients. boil the bratwurst in the beer. Hollow out each piece of pretzel bread ( save it for something else). and caramelize the onions slowly in the olive oil. Grill your bratwurst. On a sheet pan, arrange the “pretzel buns” put a bratwurst in each bun and top with caramelized onions. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees f- until the buns get crispy. Remove from oven. Top with condiments and enjoy!
This was such a huge hit! My kids love pretzel bread and were really excited that I made this for a meal. I love how all of these ingredients can be prepared in advance. Perfect and easy for any summer get-together.
