  1. 1 package of bratwurst sausages

  2. enough buns for all the sausages

  3. 1 Tbsp olive oil

  4. 1 onion

  5. 1 12 oz. hard cider (I used Hornsby Crisp Apple-I'd be interested to know if just apple juice would work for this recipe)

  1. Drizzle the olive oil in a skillet and turn heat to medium high.

  2. Slice your onions. If you plan to put them on your brats, you might want to make some effort to keep the rings somewhat uniform, but otherwise, just a rough chop. Toss them into the skillet when the oil is hot and quickly sautée until caramelized.

  3. Add in the brats and the cider. Bring to a bubble and reduce heat.

  4. Simmer for 20 minutes.

  5. Pre-heat your grill.

  6. Once the brats have been simmered in their cider and onion bath for 20 minutes, remove them to the grill and cook at low flame for about 3-4 minutes per side to crisp up the casings.

  7. Serve on buns with desired toppings (I like mine plain. Hubby likes mayo, mustard, ketchup, and cheese.)
