Crush the pretzels, dice the onion and mix all ingredients after removing the skin from the bratwurst. Season the mixture with salt and pepper, shape some paddies and put them into the fridge for minimum 1 hour.



When the resting time is over take the paddies out of the fridge, put them in a bowl and pour the beer over it, the paddies should be covered (otherwise turn them after a while) and marinate them in the beer for another 1 or 2 hours...


I baked some fresh pretzel buns but you can also use regular buns... but I'm sure the taste is better with the pretzel buns...


Take the paddies out of the beer marinade, dry them and put them to the grill where you grill them for about 5 minutes per side...


In the meantime prepare the buns with some mustard, salad and caramelized onions...


When the paddies are done from both sides, put the cheese on top (I took some Appenzeller) and give it some time to melt...


Put the paddies on the prepared buns and top it with some more of the caramelized onions... enjoy with some more beer to wash it down...

  1. is there any raw onion in the patty mixture or only roasted onion? in your picture it looks like you have crispy french fried onions, is that correct?
    Is the mixture a 3 link to about 1 link (portion) of pretzel and onion mixture?

    1. There´s one raw onion (finely diced) in the mixture... yes, it´s cripsy french fried onions (didn´t know the exact description for it).
      I took app. a handful of pretzels, a handful of the crispy onions and a small onion which I cut...
      I hope this helps...
