  • 1 pound white or yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup canned beef broth, undiluted
  • 2 to 4 tbsp German coarse-grain mustard
  • Freshly ground pepper, optional
  • 4 bratwurst, knockwurst, bockwurst or other German-style link sausages
  • 4 sourdough French rolls, split


  1. Prepare a charcoal fire or preheat a broiler. Heat a well-oiled skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the onions and sauté until they are limp and transparent, about
  3. 15 minutes, stirring often. Add the beef broth and simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the mustard; season with freshly ground pepper to taste if desired. Set sauce aside.
  5. Meanwhile, grill or broil the sausages for about 15 minutes, turning
  6. to brown all sides. (If sausages are thick and were sold not fully
  7. cooked, it's best to parboil them before grilling so cooking will be
  8. thorough.)
  9. Toast the French rolls, cut sides down, on the grill or skillet. Place a sausage or split sausage in each toasted roll and top with a generous portion of the onion mixture.
  10. Place bratwurst in sauce to coat. Serve with remaining sauce.
