Bratwurst

You know those days. Work sucked, and you didn't get anything done today. Everything failed. Your feet hurt. You're cranky. And you just want to go home and relax, put your feet up, and eat something greasy. But it has to be fast and easy, because you don't have the energy to do something really creative.

Those are the days for bratwurst and a thyme martini, in my books.

Raw bratwurst

This is quick and simple. Parboil the bratwurst in some beer for a few minutes. This is a raw sausage, and you want it to start the cooking at this step. Toss in a few pieces of chopped onion and thyme if you like to flavour it.

Parboiled bratwurst

While the brats are parboiling, light the grill. I prefer briquettes for this, because they get crazy hot.

Fire

Once the charcoal is hot, toss the parboiled bratwurst on the grill. Grill until browned nicely on both sides.

Grilling bratwurst

Toast some buns briefly while you get the condiments ready. Like grilled onions.

And you have dinner on the table inside of 20 minutes. Why would you eat hot dogs when you can have this? Yum.

Never thought of putting chili-garlic sauce on brats. I will definitely be doing this soon!
