In Wisconsin, brats are considered a staple at summer picnics. These are a twist on the traditional grilled brats. I have found once people try them, they soon become a favorite.

Directions

  1. Place the brats into the bottom of a large electric covered roaster (such as a Nesco(R)). Layer the apples, then the onions, then the brown sugar over the brats. Pour the water over the ingredients.
  2. Cover the roaster and cook the brats at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 3 hours. Brats will look dark and candied when ready.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Made this exactly as written the first time around. My husband said he would order these at a pub any day! The second time around, we added garlic and a small, diced jalapeno and loved it even more! We're adding this to the monthly rotation!

I have made many recipes from this site, but never rated one ... before now. THESE. WERE. GREAT. Made a few changes: I halved the recipe, used dark brown sugar, and baked in the oven on 350 for one hour. I loved how soft and flavorful they turned out to be. The pan juices, mixed with spicy brown mustard, made the perfect condiment. Thanks for the Great Recipe pljma5!!

These got the thumbs up from the guys. I had deer brats and wanted to disguise the flavor a bit, so I thought this would work. I don't have a roaster, so I just used a 9x13 in the oven for about an hour. I only had 8 brats thawed, so I used 3 onions and 2 1/2 apples. A nice change from the usual. I would like to try it again with regular brats as well. Thanks for sharing!
