Grilled Brat’s on Nature’s Own Butter Buns
This afternoon I grabbed some brats, Nature’s Own Butter Buns, sauerkraut, and stone ground mustard from Publix. I usually buy the store brand buns to save a little money, but the past couple time they have been stale. I figured I’d take a chance with Nature’s Own to see if they were better. After getting things squared away inside I went outside. The South is currently experiencing above average temperatures and thankfully I had a cool drink in hand as I lit the grill. Above is a video I made detailing some tips for grilling bratwurst. They can be summed up as follows:
- Braise your brats in liquid first. I like using beer with a sliced onion and let them cook ten to fifteen minutes.
- Finish the brats on the grill over medium heat to brown the exterior. It takes seven to eight minutes, but times may vary depending on your grill.
- Serve in a Nature’s Own butter bun with stone ground mustard and sauerkraut.
The brats turned out great and the Nature’s Own butter buns made them even better! They were fresh and held up to the mustard, kraut and juices from the brat.
