Unfortunately grilling brats is not an option for me at my current residence.  However, I do enjoy brats especially in the fall for football season.  Here is my recipe for brats in a frying pan:

1 Package Johnsonville Brats
Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen

Place the brats in a frying pan and pour in half the beer.  The other half is yours to drink as you cook.  Cover the pan and wait.  It will come to a boil keep on a medium high until the brats start to loose their pink. You should turn once during this process.  Remove the lid and allow the beer to start boiling off.

Once the beer begins to form a caramelized coating on the pan its time to start browning.  I like to turn the brats onto three of the sides to brown and get bits of caramelized goodness.  Do not try to brown the inside U of the brats that only breaks the casing and makes a mess.

I prefer to serve the brats on whole wheat sesame seed buns with spicy honey mustard.  Also, a hard pretzel or two and some refrigerator pickles are a nice touch.  Finally, a big frothy mug of beer to wash it all down.
