"After years of eating plain old brats, I came up with this great-tasting version slathered in zippy onions," remarks Gunnard Stark of Rotunda West, Florida. Your family can enjoy juicy bratwurst for dinner with plenty left over for meals later in the week.

"Very impressed! This could be a game day staple. The onions were absolutely delicious and the brats were perfect. The seasoning was excellent and wasn't overly spicy, even with the hot pepper sauce. Changes I made: I only used 10 brats which still leaves enough for a different dish, and I used season salt in place of the celery salt."

"Ok, I usually improvise anyway; so I had a lemon/berry beer. So tender, I just ate it without bun and no mustard! So good..."

"I really like this method of cooking brats, they got good and crispy. There didn't seem to be enough seasonings so I put in extra hot sauce but I didn't realize how much this cooks down and the onions were almost to spicy. Next time I'll opt for the lesser seasoning amount especially with the celery salt."
