"I made my own honey mustard for this recipe. The recipe turned out great. We will definitely be making this again. It was very simple and quick. It was great for a week night dinner. I had not tried honey mustard with Bratwurst before this but the flavors really go well together!"

"A great and easy was to add "oomph" to a bbq picnic. These are hearty and pair well with so many picnic foods. Try them with Taste of Home Three-Bean bake Recipe."

"Honey mustard is available everywhere. Try Walmart. I would not par-boil. Leaving them on the grill till they just split adds the true brat flavor you are really looking for. Make sure you buy the best sausage buns available and toast on grill. Make sure you turn with anything but a fork. Puncture wounds can really cost you flavor. Our go-to brats are from Publix supermarket. But any deli brat will give you a better meal."

"Chatykathy45, honey mustard is available in most grocery stores in the mustard section of the condiment aisle. I can usually find name brands as well as store brands."

"People rave over this recipe when I bring it to cookouts and ask for the recipe often. I parboil the brats first so the cooking time on the grill is reduced and they don't burn."

"I really, really liked this -- and I'm not much of a brat person. I used Johnsonville brats and paired it with stir-fried cabbage. Perfect on a winter day."

"Thank you for separating the marinade from the sauce and not trying to reuse the marinade! As someone who works with food safety information all day, every day, its heartening to know that the message of "don't cross-contaminate" is getting through! Sounds like a great recipe, I look forward to trying it."

"Since brats here in Md. are of inferior taste (Sheboygan brats are best). This marinade and sauce may help, I'm going to try it."
