I've made many variations of this excellent main dish. The bratwurst can be plain, smoked or cheese-flavored, served whole or cut in slices, with a bun or without. It would be popular at a party or potluck.

I'm making this today. I'm a little afraid that there's no liquid in it but I'm going with the recipe anyways but I did double up on the sugar cause I like it sweet so I'll let you know.I'm only giving it three stars cause I haven't tried it yet but it's super simple to make.

I make this once a week. My family loves it! I use 10 brats, and I add a half of cabbage quartered. Delicious!

This was delicious! I followed the recipe except used a jumbo onion and a little more brown sugar. Will make again for sure!
