  • 3 large onions, peeled & thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 lbs bratwursts, pricked with a fork (bobby uses pre-cooked brats, but we get more flavor out of using uncooked, johnsonville is our favor)

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seed
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seed
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 piece fresh ginger, peeled & chopped (1-inch)
  • bun, of your choice (or not)
  • german mustard, of your choice (we prefer honey spice mustard)
  • sauteed onion (optional)
