Green Bay Packers uber-fan Wayne Sargent reveals how to make the classic Wisconsin brat. He simmers his brats in a pot of water, beer, onion, Worcestershire sauce and red wine vinegar, then grills them. Serve in a bun with your favorite condiments and toppings. Delish!

Next, Rachael came up with this delish recipe for deli-style sandwiches that feature bratwurst instead of pastrami. She makes a homemade apple red cabbage to layer on the sandwich instead of the traditional sauerkraut. Yum!

Tip: Simmer your brats in water to fully cook them, before slicing them in half and cooking face down on your griddle.
