Beer Brats and Caramelized Onions with mustard

Grilled beer brats topped with caramelized onions are awesome. We love this method for making brats! Brown the brats on the grill, caramelize the onions, then savor the smell of your brats simmering in a lovely brown ale. The brats are tender and juicy and are perfect topped with the onions and your favorite mustard or whatever else you like.

Need something to go with it? Try this Tomato Peach Salsa and tortilla chips or this refreshing Peach Sangria.

The beer I use is a home brewed brown ale.
