Cook’s Tips:

For extra convenience, this recipe calls for precooked bratwurst. If you prefer to use fresh bratwurst, you’ll need to cook the sausages before skewering. To cook fresh bratwurst before grilling, prick sausages several times. Place in (10-in.) Skillet with 3 cups water and 1 medium onion, cut into wedges. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Remove bratwurst from skillet using Chef’s Tongs; cool slightly and proceed as recipe directs.

Precooked smoked sausage is another type of sausage that can be used in this recipe.

If you use wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.
