A 30-minute meal starts with tasty, Reuben-style fixings for hot-off-the-grill brats.
can or bottle (12 oz) beer or nonalcoholic beer
uncooked fresh bratwurst links (about 1 lb)
tablespoons Thousand Island dressing
rye or whole wheat bratwurst buns, split
cup shredded Swiss cheese (2 oz)
cup sauerkraut, drained, heated if desired
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In 2-quart saucepan, heat beer to boiling. Add bratwurst; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 15 minutes.
Drain bratwurst. Place on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 5 to 10 minutes, turning once, until brown.
Spread dressing on cut sides of buns. Place bratwurst in buns; top with cheese, bratwurst and sauerkraut.
Simmering the brats in beer makes them moist and flavorful, and it shortens the grilling time.
To cut fat and calories, use fat-free Thousand Island dressing and chicken or turkey brats.
