You can prepare the ultimate comfort dish by roasting these brats in the oven.

They’re meaty, briny, and full of smoky goodness, but they’re light enough to eat with your hands.

And unlike sausages that can be hard to work with, these brats are so easy you could make them every day and never get bored!

Except maybe with the beer-battered kind, of course.

But regardless, these brats are always a hit at parties.

Try them with potato chips or even as a crust for a pizza.

They’re also perfect for breakfast, when you just slice off some tender meat and fry it up.

It’s already pretty irresistible so why not add more flavor?

It’s time to put away those sausages and try something new with these brats in oven!

Bratwurst is one of my favorite meats.

It’s juicy, tender, and incredibly meaty.

3. Sheet Pan Brats & Potatoes

If you’ve never made your own brats, here are a few guidelines to keep in mind.

Start by cooking the beef with lots of spices.

You’ll stop when it hits the right tenderness point, which should be pink and juicy.

Be sure to season generously so the meat doesn’t dry out.

The potatoes are pretty standard and easy, though you may add more seasoning for that extra bit of moisture.

4. Beer Brats In Oven

Beer brats are a classic BBQ dish that you can make in just 15 minutes.

You’ll take a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and cover it with your brats.

As the recipe says, “just pop them in the oven and bam!

They’re done.”

But they don’t need to be left unattended in the oven.

Just cut them up on a cutting board and grill them right over the fire.

This is one of those simple recipes that you can use all kinds of ways.

But I like to slice mine into pieces wide enough so they cook evenly.

If you want to add some extra flair, light these on fire, too!

While you can use spices or beer, I prefer my brats with a bit of heat.

Either way, these are delicious!

This recipe is not only easy, but it’s also 100% vegetarian!

Instead of using meat, you’ll use potatoes and vegetables.

Be sure to keep an eye on your potatoes when serving (and pile them high!).

They can easily burn if they aren’t cooked right.

13. Cheesy Brat Stew

I’m sure you already have all the ingredients on hand, so this is a good one to try if you need some basic bratwurst recipes.

The whole process only takes 15 minutes.

This recipe is best paired with some pulled pork for a complete meal.

17. Bratwurst Casserole

As I said before, brats are a great meat for bratwurst casserole.

They have a nice tender bite that holds together well to make a surprisingly flavorful dish.

You’ll start by browning the sausage and then adding in the onions and peppers.

Then you’ll add in the cabbage, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings.

The sausage mixture is so simple that it wouldn’t be surprising to see it come out of a can.

If you don’t like Worcestershire sauce, try using your favorite condiment instead.

In that case, leave out the chicken broth.

That will save you some time too!

21. Bacon Wrapped Beer Brats

You can’t go wrong with bacon and beer.

Since both are deep fried, it’s always a winner in my book.

These brats are ideal for a game day party or just as an appetizer for your next cookout.

The beer helps the meat stay juicy and flavorful while the bacon gives it that classic flavor you know and love.
