Loaded Beer Brats

It's been awhile since I shared a photo of the Little Miss.  This is on my birthday a couple of weeks ago.  I have many saying she looks like me, but it's hard to tell when it is yourself.  A few have said her daddy...who knows?

The little man looks EXACTLY like his daddy in my opinion, so I hope I get at least one child resembling me.

Now on to these brats.  There is a brat under there, if you can't see it.  They are loaded.  Boiled in beer, layered with garlic, onions and peppers.  This was the husband's plate, as mine looked a little 'less loaded', but of course wanted to give my readers the full effect.

Loaded Beer Brats
5 bratwursts
1 can beer
1-2 c. water
1 white onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. oil

In a medium saucepan place brats with can of beer and enough water to cover.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.  Place on the grill to finish cooking. 

Meanwhile saute peppers, onions, garlic and a little oil in pan on medium heat.  Once things start to caramelize, turn down the heat and keep warm until ready to serve. 

I'll be honest we grill hamburgers or brats at least once a week during the summer, so every now and then I need to change it up to keep things from getting boring.  I mean, the husband is a meat and potatoes man, and I don't fall that far behind him.

What do you grill the most of in the summer?

Stay tuned folks...guess what mouth watering dessert is coming next?  Nutella Cream Cheese Brownies.  Yep, you heard me right.  I found the recipe on a great blog today and couldn't print off the recipe quick enough.

Bring a big glass of cold milk with ya!
