Here's a really easy recipe for those of us who don't know how to boil eggs. Just because you "don't know how to cook", is no excuse to not to have German food. Technically sausages would be "German". You can start with the Bratwurst. Now don't say "I don't know how to cook." because if you can eat hot dogs, you can definitely cook Bratwurst. It's the easiest way to enjoy Oktoberfest. It's made out of pork, beef and sometimes a bit of veal.

The first thing to do is to get enough Bratwurst for everyone. If you're having guests, make sure you have at least one for each person. Keep in mind they might want seconds. Have a side dish of salad. The accompaniment can be rye bread or German bread roll. You'll also need a skillet and water for cooking.

Once you're ready to cook, make small holes in the Bratwurst by pricking it with a fork. This is so that the pressure won't build up inside the sausage and burst during cooking.
Pour water about half inch into the skillet along with the Bratwurst and cook it in medium heat. Keep the skillet covered. Cook until the water is evaporated. You don't have to boil it, just let it simmer and evaporate -- some oil should come out of the Bratwurst and it'll cook itself, so don't put more oil in. It should be a bit golden brown. It'll give off a nice delicious smell.

If you like onions, you can slice them and put them in the skillet and make them brown. When the onions are translucent and a bit brownish, they'll be ready. If you want you can add a cup of white wine or beer (I recommend Pilsener or any other pale lager) and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Some people don't like the taste/smell of cooked beer smell so ask your guests first if they like that or if they're adventurous enough to try.

Have your Bratwurst with Rye bread or German roll and salad with beer of course! Now wasn't that easy? So don't tell me you can't cook German food. Have great fun this Oktoberfest.

Talk about fun, here's a little game. Enjoy!

    I think I am going to join the ranks of the ex-pat crowd. I recently went on an amazing Tuscany wine tour and was just blown away. Imagine drinking wine in the exact vineyard that the grapes come from. All while surrounded by the freshest and most delicious Italian cooking on Earth. Now I’m back at work and every time I close my eyes I can see, smell, and taste the vineyards of Tuscany. Ciao!
