"These are a big hit for those arm chair atheletes on sport days. Slow cooked in beer, topped with a chili sauce mixture add cheese these are heavenly. You may use nonalcoholic beer. I spotted the recipe in Taste of Home by Alana Simmons. I made a several changes. The original recipe called for 3 cans beer - I found that two was more than enough. It you like spicy use Hot Italian Sausages instead of Brats Mmmm Good"
