Dating back more than 700 years, the bratwurst—a sausage made from chopped veal, beef, or pork—is an important staple in German cuisine. It is, arguably, one of the most traditional German exports and a favorite of not only Germans, but also meat-lovers all over the world.

Bring a taste of Bavaria into your kitchen by making this bratwurst bake—grilled in a bath of German beer and served over fresh roasted veggies!



  1. Using a fork, pierce the skin of the sausages to ventilate. Pour the lager into a large pot on medium-high heat, and add in the bratwursts and garlic.
