Having been born and raised in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, this is a "staple" of our diet!!! Every Sunday was "hamburgers and brats" at Grandma's house, with, of course, her German Potato Salad!!! Unfortunately the only place I've found that you can get a good "hard roll" is in Sheboygan, so you'll probably have to settle for a brat bun.

In large pot, cover all brats with beer, add an onion or two and bring to a rolling boil. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Place on grill and brown on all sides. Put back in beer and add a few tablespoons of melted butter. Serve on a hard roll or brat bun.
