Grilled Brats with Mustard Relish

For a tailgate party, picnic or casual supper, try this 30-minute recipe. The relish made with grilled onion, applesauce and mustard sets these sausages apart from the rest.


4 servings


1 1/2 cups apple cider, beer or water
4 uncooked bratwurst (about 1 pound), thawed if frozen
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 slice (1/2 inch thick) sweet onion
1/3 cup chunky applesauce
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
4 brat or hot dog buns, split


Heat gas or charcoal grill. In 2-quart saucepan, heat cider to boiling. Add bratwurst; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, brush oil on cut side of onion. Place onion, oil side up, on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 9 to 12 minutes, turning once, until onion is soft and edges are golden brown. Remove onion from grill; coarsely chop. In small bowl, mix onion, applesauce and mustard; set aside.

Drain bratwurst. Place on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 minutes, turning once, until brown.

In each bun, place 1 bratwurst and about 2 tablespoons relish.
