On a related note, I found a new mustard I really like: Koops' Arizona Heat. Yummy stuff.

Amazing...I am getting hungrier for my lunch now

Quite simple to make, really. You put your brats in a pot with a chopped onion and pour enough beer over to cover them. Then you bring to a simmer for about 15 minutes or until they are cooked through. Once done, throw them on the grill for a few minutes to crisp up on the outside.

No recipe required, but if you want one anyway, Bobby Flay's is on the Food Network website.

I'll have to give that a try. They were pretty good just grilled.

I was going to make a salad and add some of the left over rotisserie chicken, but Stirling felt more like having hot chicken sandwiches. So, that's what we had. The part I find tedious is shredding the chicken, so I got Stirling to do it.

We were pleasantly surprised! The joint was jumping, but we were seated right away, and everything soon calmed down as we went out after 7 PM Our waitress was brand-new. The calamari app was nice and crisp, tender and not over-breaded. We split a porterhouse, and it was perfectly seasoned and cooked, med rare/rare. With each entree, you get two sides, and it was hard to get it across to the waitress that we were splitting an entree, so we only get two sides, she kept asking us what our other two sides were. We had mini Caesar salads, which to me looked like full size. We'll definitely go back!

Cheddar omelette, whole wheat toast, and a green salad.

Beer and Brats - Wisconsin's perfect marriage!

taxy, you can also do the brats in a crockpot. I've laid down a bed of thinly sliced onions, added sauerkraut with caraway seed on top, then put the bratwurst on top of that. Pour the beer over so it barely shows through the kraut, then cook away. If it's nice outside we've finished the brats off on the grill, but they are fine right out of the crockpot if you're in a hurry or there is a foot of snow on top the grill.
