Oscar Mayer died at the age of 95. So in honor, let’s all cook up some sort of wieners, or make a bologna sandwich or something – well, I’m thinkin brats, since I already had them purchased and planned for dinner:
Simple. Open up your favorite bottle of beer and pour it into your favorite fry pan, heat the beer and poke a few holes in your favorite brand of brats and let them steep in heated beer for about ten minutes.
Throw em on the grill and brown them until crispy on the outside. Make sure to watch them so they don’t burn. Serve them on your favorite bun and with your favorite summer salad. In this case I made a simple broccoli salad, you know the kind, with a sweet/sour mayonnaise based sauce a combination of broccoli florets, sunflower seeds, raisins, celery, onion etc. Just toss in what sounds good. If anyone wants an exact recipe, I can measure ingredients next time I make it. It’s just vinegar, sugar, mayo, salt and pepper. I will note here that I like to use seasoned Rice Vinegar, or plain old cider vinegar.
