MN, you are damn cold. Cold, as in I can’t believe you let it snow in May and rained out the only Twins game I’ll have tickets to in the next 2+ years. Now that’s cold, MN. Cold.
In other ways though, I have to say that you came through for me. Beer brats, chicken wings and good ol’ fashioned apple pie were consumed. Babies laughed and puppies cheered. It was a seriously good time.
And because I want you to have a MN good time too, I’ll share with you my secret (right, as secret as that secret room in my parents’ house) recipe:
1 dozen brats
Beer, to cover (Don’t use your fancy micro-brew, that is just silly. Be a man and use Coors Light.)
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
Place brats in a large saucepan or Dutch oven with the onions and cover with beer. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer until brats are almost cooked through. Remove the brats and finish on grill. Serve with sauerkraut, onions, pickle relish, and all other delicious tidbits.
