1 large sweet onion, sliced into 1/4-inch rings
6 bratwurst sausages (see Note)

Directions:
Directions:
Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil or butter in a large Dutch oven. Brown bratwurst sausages until deep golden brown. Remove to a platter.

To the drippings, add the remaining teaspoon of olive oil or butter and the sweet onion rings. Toss the onions to coat with the oil. Cook, stirring often, until onions are limp and golden but not brown.

Return the bratwurst to the onions and add the beer. Cook over medium heat until beer has cooked down to a syrup, about 12 to 15 minutes.

Bratwurst may be served on buns with the onions or as an entree.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Popular at tailgate and Super Bowl parties, beer brats are good year-round. It's hard to believe you only need four simple ingredients to make this quick and tasty dish. Don't restrict yourself to bratwurst. Use this method with hot dogs, Italian sausage, knockwurst, or just about any link sausage.

Feel free to use this method with your favorite sausages or hot dogs. Dark beer gives a richer flavor, but a standard commercial lager will work just fine.
