Bratwursts are a summertime staple. If you’re wondering how to make the best brats, we’ve got a secret for you: this homemade onion relish recipe may just be what you need! It’s the perfect addition to grilled brats. We have several other homemade bratwurst toppings for all your summer grilling needs!
In large deep skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat and add onion. Sauté, stirring frequently, until very soft, about 8-10 minutes. Add beer and brown sugar and cook over medium high heat until liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Continue cooking until the onion turns a golden brown, stirring constantly. Stir in bacon, pickles and thyme. Season with salt and pepper.
Prepare a medium hot fire in grill. Grill bratwurst directly over heat, turning, until evenly browned, about 5-7 minutes and to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. Remove from grill and top with onion relish.
