It is very doable to get great brats without using a grill. I’ve got 3 ways!

Bratwursts are a summer staple. Of course, it doesn’t have to be summer to enjoy these deliciously flavored sausages.

Today I’ll show you 3 different techniques that’ll give you awesome results without a grill.

Heat up your cast-iron

While your brats are simmering, put your cast iron grill pan on the stove at medium-high heat. You want it to be hot when you put the brats on.

Caramelize your onions

After simmering for about 10 minutes, throw them in your grill pan and let the cast iron do the rest. You want a good browning on all sides. Continue to let the onions cook and caramelize in the beer pan, they’ll add to the flavor. This is my favorite non-grill bratwurst recipe.

Wrap – Up

Winter time isn’t really known for bratwurst unless of course, you are Green Bay Packers fan (I seem to remember Bears fans being giant bratwurst eaters also, but that may only come from a Saturday Night Live skit I saw once). But with these three cooking technique, you will be able to enjoy them at any time of the year, regardless of the weather or your access to a grill.

Making sausage at home? I recommend the best sausage stuffer here.
