    Toss your brats into a pot, throw in some medium/small potatoes or chop a big one into chunks. Slice up an onion, don't dice it though, then if you are feeling extra sassy you can dice up some apple and put that in there too. Now, I always put a healthy portion of sauerkraut in with all this, but if you don't like it, no biggy. It's good though, trust me. Pour in enough beer that your other ingredients will soak up the flavor while it's cooking but you don't want to drown it, maybe half a bottle or so. Put the lid on and simmer all that until your brats are cooked through and your potatoes are tender. Easy.

    If that's too many ingredients, slice up your onion into smallish rings and cook that with the brats in a pan (covered) adding beer every now and then as it steams off.

    I've never tried those for some reason, I'll have to remember that next time. I usually use some kind of Beer 'n' Brat. Johnsonville's are widely available but there may be other kinds in stock where you are. I used to see some around here made with Redhook beer, those were great.

    I know Budweiser isn't a beer, much less a cooking beer, but I found 2 cans for FREE
    Should I really go buy more beer just to make bratwursts

    How long is good cooking time?

    Also, if I dont have a real lid.. is there a problem in covering my pot with tin foil, lol

    Actually, Bud is just fine to cook with, especially stuff like this. You don't want to be using brews that have too strong of a flavor, you just want the essence of beer. Besides, you want to be drinking the good stuff WITH your food, haha. You can just use another pan or a plate or really anything that will keep most of the steam in without burning or whatever.

    It says right on the label "King of Beers." That means it must be the best. They can't just lie on packaging. ;)

    The only thing I would add to this recipe is to take the brats out when they are cooked through and finish them in a frying pan. Just add a little bit of oil and cook them until the skin turns brown and gets tight. Then serve that up with some good brown mustard and saurkraut in a hard roll with a few beers and you're set.

    German beer and german sausage is a potent combination.
