Beer Bratwurst with Onions

Do you love sausage? I know I do! This recipe is a great one for those sausage lovers out there as well as those who are willing to try them. Colosimo Sausage is a family business based right here in Utah that was established in 1923. All of their pork sausages are made from only the finest cuts of pork and by the taste you can definitely tell that is true. They use the pork shoulder commonly referred to as the Boston Butt. The sausages are made daily and are inspected in their facilities in West Jordan.  Colosimo's makes over 25 kinds of sausages. Some of the more popular flavors include: Mild Italian, Hot Italian, Bratwurst, Polish, Cajun, and Tuscan Red Wine.  I love this recipe and recommend it for any family meal or dinner party.  I hope you enjoy this delicious local food.  


2 tsp. butter or olive oil (Winder Farms)
6 bratwurst sausages (Colosimo's)
1 large sweet onion, sliced into 1/1-inch slices (East Farms CSA)
6 ounces beer (Wasatch Beer)

1. Heat one tsp. butter or olive oil in large Dutch oven. Brown the sausages until a deep golden brown, making sure to turn them over during browning without piercing the skin. Remove to a dish.
2. Add additional tsp. of butter or olive oil and the onion slices. Toss the onions to coat and cook, stirring often until translucent and golden, but not brown.
3. Return the sausages to the Dutch oven and add the beer. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beer has cooked down to a syrup, about 15-20 minutes.
4. Serve on buns with the onions or alone.
