This is a simple dish using fresh bratwurst, onions, and balsamic vinegar. It has a nice tangy flavor, and is excellent served in crusty bread and topped with spicy mustard. My other favorite way is to serve with a side of greens and potatoes.

These were so good! I will definatly be making it again. The vinegar gives it great flavor. I was alittle hesitant to using vinegar as I thought the flavor might be too strong but its perfect. Its very subtile and tastes delicious. Yum!

Very delicious. With the cold weather creeping upon us, my BBQ has been standing cold for a couple of weeks. This new recipe came in my email and I now had an excuse to use my BBQ. I did saute my onions first rather than at the end. Very tasty. We served this dish with boiled potaotes, green beans, and fresh bread. Thanks for sharing!

This recipe is so good! I made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I both loved it. Last time I made brats I used the Beer Brats recipe from this site, this recipe is 100 times better. The onions tasted great, and the brats were delicious. The only thing I changed was browning them in a frying pan instead of grilling them. Will deinitely have the hubby grill them when I make them this summer, but winters in Maine are not condusive to grilling. I will definitely be making this again!
