We love these:

1 package of uncooked brats (we use Johnsonville Original)
1 package soft hoagie rolls
softened butter for rolls
1 bottle beer
3 T apple cider vinegar
1 t salt
1/2 t ground mustard
1/2 t celery seed
1 bay leaf
black pepper, to taste
2 large yellow onions, sliced in rings
1/2 to 1 t crushed red pepper flakes
2 T flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 to 3 T olive oil

Mix together the parsley, red pepper flakes, and olive oil. Set aside.

In a very large skillet, mix together the beer, vinegar, salt, ground mustard, celery seed, bay leaf, and black pepper. Add the onions and bring to a low simmer. After 20 to 30 minutes, add the brats and return to a low simmer. Cook the brats about 10 minutes on one side, flip, and cook another 10 minutes. At this point, most of the liquid should be evaporated. Remove the brats from the skillet and set aside.

Drain the onions and place them into the parsley/red pepper/olive oil mixture to make the onion relish.

Add a small amount of oil to the skillet and raise the heat to medium high. Brown the brats on all sides to crisp the skins.

Spread the butter over the split hoagie rolls and toast. Place a brat on the the hoagie, mound with onion relish, and enjoy.

If we've got the grill fired up, we'll cook them with the onions and then put them on the grill to brown and crisp the skins instead of browning in the skillet. Toasting the hoagies on the grill is great too. Either way, they turn out mighty tasty.

Looks delish. We usually simmer them in beer and throw them on the grill, but I will try this way soon. Thanks.
