Beer and brats are a classic combination, the malty flavor of lager perfectly balancing the spiced meat. Making this dish in the slow cooker keeps the sausages juicy and tender. What are you waiting for? Make the recipe below!
Bratwursts, like hot dogs, are a national favorite that each region of the country prepares a bit differently. In the Northeast, brats tend to be accompanied by sauerkraut and Dijon mustard; in the Midwest we prefer whole-grain mustard and pickles.
Pro tip: For a crisp exterior, after cooking, sear the brats in a cast-iron skillet or grill pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
