Brat Sliders with Beer Cheese on Pretzel Buns

1 package of your favorite pre-cooked brats, (I like to use the Johnsonville Stadium Brats), cut in half, each half cut lengthwise

8 mini pretzel buns, toasted

Braised Onions
1 Tbs. butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 cup German lager
1 tsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Beer Cheese Sauce
10 oz. shredded Alma Creamery sharp cheddar
1 1/2 Tbs. all purpose flour
1 cup German lager
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs. spicy brown mustard
Worcestershire sauce, to taste

Add onions and 1 Tbs. of butter to a cast iron skillet over medium heat; saute onions until softened and translucent. Add lager, sugar, and Worcestershire to onions; season to taste with salt and pepper.  Cook onions over medium heat until they begin to caramelize and most of the lager has been absorbed.  Transfer onions to a bowl and keep warm.

In same skillet over medium high heat, add brats and saute on all sides until nicely browned.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine cheddar with flour and toss to combine.  In a separate skillet, bring a cup of lager to a boil; add garlic and simmer for about 60 seconds.  Add cheese mixture, a little at a time, stirring constantly after each addition, so that cheese melts evenly.  Once cheese is nicely melted, add add mustard and Worcestershire.

Serve brats loaded onto toasted pretzel buns topped with beer cheese sauce and onions.  These are delicious served along side warm German Potato Salad.
