Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make this meal into a bratwurst bar, by offering many different toppers. We love sauerkraut, mustard, bacon, jalapeño chiles, relish and coleslaw!
  • tip 2
    Need an nonalcoholic version? Use nonalcoholic beer or beef broth instead of the beer.
