Baseball season’s Opening Day is a fave day for our family. Like, holiday status fave day. And, like every other holiday we celebrate with the fam, the special day includes a special menu as a part of the deal.
So, for this most happy of spring-time occasions, I give you:
David’s Opening Day Brats
Prep/Cook Time: 45 minutes
3 large sweet yellow onions
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 small can of Chipotle en adobo sauce
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
2 Tablespoons brown mustard
1 Tablespoon creole mustard
2 Shiners (or your favorite dark beer)
1 Dos XX (or your favorite beverage of choice to drink while you cook)
1 package bratwurst
1 package hoagie buns
Heat 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil in stock pot over medium-low heat
Add onions. Slowly sweat onions down over medium-low heat till onions are clear.
While onions cook, prepare your chipotle mustard:
In food processor, mix 1 Chipotle en adobo plus 2 Tablespoons of the sauce with 2 Tablespoons yellow mustard, 2 Tablespoons brown mustard and 1 Tablespoon Creole mustard. Blend till smooth.
Remove brats from pan and grill till browned.
You always get a special kick on opening day, no matter how many you go through. You look forward to it like a birthday party when you’re a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen.
Here’s to the 2014 Baseball Season. May something wonderful happen!
