"A very hearty meal that's good in the autumn or winter. Lots of flavor and very much a comforting meal after a long day in the cold. It pairs well with coleslaw."

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook bratwurst in hot oil until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove bratwurst to a plate, reserving drippings in the skillet.
  2. Stir apple and onion slices into the reserved drippings; cook and stir until the onion softens, about 6 minutes. Return bratwurst to the skillet, nestling them into the onion mixture. Pour beer over the sausages; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bring the beer to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the the bratwurst is no longer pink in the center, 25 to 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Footnotes

This is a very good German dish, something my grandmother would have liked. The only difference I did was add a little more onion. Very easy .

Delicious, fast and easy. I tripled the recipe, putting the sliced apples, onions, 2 cans of Bavarian sauerkraut, and apple cider (sub for beer) in the crockpot to warm while I browned the brats...

Delicious! Used one apple and 1 bottle of hard apple cider for the beer because that's what I had on hand. Two bottles seemed too much and as it turned out for me, probably could have just use...

The brats were tasty, but I'm not sure the apples really added anything. We enjoyed these, but next time I'll skip the apples.

I used an IPA beer, so added a couple of packets of sugar to take out the bitterness. I also had a leftover baked potato, so I sliced it up and added with the apples and onions.

Total Deliciousness
