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.
