The cooked slaw-and-cranberry topping on these beer-boiled brats can be served either warm or cold. It makes a tasty and colorful change from kraut or conventional condiments. Thanks to Christy Hinrichs of Parkville, Missouri for the recipe!

"I added 1/2 tsp of celery seed, 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper and 1 tsp kosher salt to the slaw during the last step. My family loved this unique dish and we will certainly make it again."
