Slow Cooker Bratwurst Recipe

My husband and I loooove bratwursts.  I like to top them with just about anything.  The more stuff on top the better!  Sometimes, standing over a hot grill in the summer isn’t very fun.  I decided to try a new route of cooking our brats and we sure loved them!

Slow Cooker Bratwursts Recipe:
1 package of Bratwursts (whichever flavor/type you prefer)
1 onion, sliced
2 cups apple juice
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Other toppings you prefer
Brown the sides of the bratwursts in a skillet on the stove.  After the sides are browned, place bratwursts in your slow cooker.  Top with sliced onion.  Mix together apple juice and Dijon mustard, then pour over everything in your slow cooker.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours, making sure they are cooked thoroughly before serving.  Serve on a bun with all your favorite toppings.

    We like brats, but I don’t fix them often because I think they can get tough sometimes. (I guess maybe I overcook them?) Anyway, this looks super good and it seems like the slow cooker would keep them good and moist. Thanks for sharing!

    Is it possible to replace the apple juice with beer? I usually boil by brats in beer and then grill them or brown them in a skillet and the flavor is amazing! I’m just wondering if the beer would cook down too much…but I supposed I could always cut it with water.

    If your chops are rather thin, this final step
    may only take 45 minutes. Multi-ingredient turkey products should contain nutritional information as well, though single-ingredient turkey products like turkey breasts may provide voluntary
    information. Whatever you end up doing, you’d amended wee sure to do
    it presently.
