For large social gatherings:
2 lbs. Bratwurst
2 onions, thinly sliced
1 cup butter
6 (12 oz.) cans of beer
1 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
Condiments of your choice
For smaller parties, cut recipe in half.
Pick Brats with a fork (some people argue this step shouldn't be followed).
Place in a large stock pot with onions, butter, pepper, and beer.
Simmer for 20 minutes.
Cook marinated Brats on the grill until brown on all sides.
Put Brat in Hoagie roll and use the marinated onions and the condiments of your choice.
Tonight's Brats will be served on a Hoagie with onions, sauerkraut, mustard and ketchup and a side of corkscrew pasta salad and fruit salad.
