Gotta love those Johnsonville brats! 1/2 of my family was born in Sheboygan, Wisc. It was my father's home town. I've been eating that bratwurst ever since I can remember. Vaguely remember attending "Bratwurst Day" festivities in Sheboygan, when I was a child.
I still make bratwurst the Sheboygan way, well almost. Boil them in beer for about 10 min. I leave out the butter and onions though. That's the way I had them originally. Beer, butter & onions. There's so much fat in brats, I just can't see wasting the butter on them, and dh doesn't like onions.
After a quick boil, on the charcoal grill they go. Gotta be charcoal. Just don't taste the same on a gas grill. My mother makes german potato salad, and ya gotta have sauerkraut! Yah! And brown mustard! Yummy!
It's almost Father's Day! And in the spirit of this thread, I sent my dad a big box o' meat!
I used to have a local-to-my-folks grocery delivery that carried the best, most epic, uncured ham, but that grocery delivery service went out of business. So sad.
So this year, I sent some things from US Wellness Meats, https://grasslandbeef.com/. They had some lovely fully cooked options which is great since my folks are not always feeling up to cooking these days.
