The last thing we served before having dessert were these sausages on Italian bread. We served them up 2 ways, Italian sausages and beer brats. Since I don’t eat pork, I didn’t taste it. Gary tasted both and he thought they both tasted the same.
I brought the first batch out and it went like hotcakes. I didn’t intend to serve the beer brats the same way, but since it wasn’t getting eaten plain without bread, I decided to make heroes out of them as well. Both seemed like big hits.
Add a bit of oil to a hot skillet. Place sausages in pan in a single layer. Pierce each with a fork to let vent. Continue to cook until brown on both sides. Cut in half and let cook until no longer pink inside.
Beer Brats with Onions
Place a dozen brats, a sliced onion, and half a stick of butter in a single layer in a pot. Add enough beer to cover. Bring to a boil, then simmer until cooked. Transfer to grill or skillet, slice in half and cook until brown. Place back in the beer to serve.
In a separate pan, place sliced peppers and onions. Sauté until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve on Italian bread. Slice into sections and serve.
