I use this recipe doubling or tripling for a crowd. Then remove the Brats and let the liquid and onions boil down to an almost syrupy sauce to keep the sausages warm after grilling.
I have made this numerous times and I always make at least 4 sausages, for leftovers when it is just my husband and me.
I omit the fennel seed because I don't like it, and I add peppers as well as onions. Made these again for July 4 and they were delicious as usual. Thanks for a great recipe!!!
This was so much easier than I imagined. I didn't have fennel seed so I'm not sure how it would taste. We all enjoyed this one.
