Bringing back the Brat Hot Tub for Super Bowl week

We talked about this at the start of football season, so why not bring it full circle during Super Bowl week? What better way to entertain your friends this Sunday than by serving a tailgating staple: delicious brats. Our friends at Johnsonville stand by this classic recipe for grilling tasty brats, and we can see why. It’s easy to follow, easy to execute, and makes brats extra flavorful and moist. Wisconsinites have been passing down this recipe from one generation to the next…..so we’re passing it on to you! Enjoy!
