While I'm thinking about recipes, here is another one. I found a variety of recipes for slow cooker bratwurst on allrecipes, and ended up simplifying all of them down to this:
5-10 bratwurst (depending on how many you want)
3 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup ketchup
1 onion, thinly sliced
water as needed to cover bratwurst
Place them all in the slow cooker, stir a few times to combine broth and ketchup, and cook on high for about 4 hours. Remove meat and onions from cooker and place on a cookie sheet (with sides). I put my brats down the center and then the onions down each side, just for pretty presentation. Broil for a few minutes until brats are slightly browned. I served them with bread (see previous post for the recipe) and a salad.
