Perfect sweet sticky Beer and Honey Glazed Bratwurst. The combination of Bratwurst coated in beer, honey & mustard with garlic, sugar and thyme is mouthwatering good!
We originally created Beer and Honey Glazed Bratwurst for own little celebration of Oktoberfest, but didn’t publish it in time! However this week is Sausage Week, so we got it published today!
What is Oktoberfest celebrated for?
Oktoberfest is an annual celebration held in Munich, Germany. Held every year between mid-September to the first Sunday in October, in celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, who later became King Louis I, to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. More than six million people attend.
Unfortunately, we could not make it this year so we bought the smell and taste to our home instead!
Inspired by a recipe found on dinneratthezoo.com Beer Brats, we made our own version, delicious Beer and Honey Glazed Bratwurst.
Bratwurst is a type of German sausage most commonly made from pork. The second most famous sausage that comes from Germany, it’s easily found in UK supermarkets.
Made with my favourite beer, Bierre Morreti as that’s what I already had in my fridge. But if you want to stay on the theme you probably should use a German beer ie. Becks
Tracklements Strong English Mustard packed a powerful punch to the glaze, along with Gia Garlic Puree for a quick and easy way to add garlic.
Using a Tefal Optigrill to cook Bratwurst
We use a Tefal OptiGrill, to cook our Bratwurst. Bought for us by my mum for a Christmas present, 2 years ago! It is still going strong and we use it often!!
You tell it what you are cooking burger/chicken/bacon/sausage/steak or fish.
It measures the thickness of your chosen category above and it cooks it at the correct temperature for the right amount of time, top and bottom grills cook at the same time so no need to turn!
Bratwursts are thick so they take about 20 minutes.
Alternatively, cook Bratwurst in the pan for 15 minutes making sure you turn frequently or grill for 20 minutes turning a few times. Or in the summer you can cook them for 20 minutes on a BBQ.
Try serving these Beer and Honey Glazed Bratwurst when the family come over, with chunky chips and coleslaw.
Traditionally, Bratwurst would be served with Red Cabbage. Follow this link for our recipe of Red Cabbage & Kabonas.
Sticky Beer & Honey Glaze
Our Sticky Beer & Honey Glaze we created for this dish has a lovely sweetness that compliments the sausage perfectly.
We chopped the Bratwurst into small chunks, added a cocktail stick to each chunk. Perfect party food to make it easy to grab without getting the sticky glaze over your fingers!
Alternatively, don’t chop the Bratwurst up and serve them in a hot dog bun, with some fried onions and pour the sauce over the top!
