Beer brats with your favorite mustard and a good bun make a great anytime meal!

Sausages aren’t just for Octoberfest. Why wait for fall. Because this one-skillet dish is simple to make,  we fix the skillet dish throughout the year.

They make an excellent game watching food.

You don’t have to fire up your grill to make good brats. Just follow the instructions below, and you are all set.


Beer Brats in a Skillet

 Mike and I like our sausages just browned and then simmered in a beer (Killian's) and served on a brat bun with our favorite mustard.  We enjoy these sandwiches all year.
