  1. Place the brats into the bottom of a large electric covered roaster (such as a Nesco(R)). Layer the apples, then the onions, then the brown sugar over the brats. Pour the water over the ingredients.
  2. Cover the roaster and cook the brats at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 3 hours. Brats will look dark and candied when ready.

I made these brats for a staff lunch meeting and they were a hit! So simple and cooked perfectly. Just followed the recipe as is; only changed the number of servings to fit my group. Definitely ...

These are so good. I had to reduce the recipe since there are only 2 of us but I have made it 3 or more times and Hubby likes it too. I serve with smashed potatoes and a salad. Num

Good. A different way to prepare brats. We have them quite often in Wisconsin!
