Last week I shared all about our new grill just in time for Memorial Day and all those perfect summer entertaining occasions! Our first meal cooked on it included my husband’s favorite beer brats (why yes, he is from the midwest with German roots 😉)! Plus, we tried making grilled corn on the cob for the first time ever!
The first time I can ever remember having a beer brat was in Nebraska and Mr. Mom Endeavors makes them just like his dad–a bit of a family tradition of sorts. They are easy to do and taste SO good fresh off the grill!
Grilled Beer Brats
- Brats (for a big grilling cook-out we usually do a package of 10-12 brats)
- Beer of your choice (we did two cans for 12 brats)
- Onion (1/2 to one whole large onion cut into approx. 1/4″ slices, depending on how much onion flavor you like)
- Water (enough to cover the brats in the pot after the beer is added. For us, that was about 3 to 4 cups)
– Place brats in a large pot. Add onions & beer. Then add enough water to just cover the brats.
Grilled Corn on the Cob
To accompany our delish brats, we tried grilling corn on the cob for the first time. I’ve heard of a bunch of different ways to do this, but with our new grilling accessories, we just opted to try them straight on the grill inside one of our baskets.
They went on the grill over medium heat for around 5-10 minutes/side. They got a little dark in places, but smelled amazing and you could hear the inside of the kernels sizzling! It went great with our grilled brats!
What are some of your grilling favorites?
