  • 1 large red onion, sliced into rings and separated
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced

  1. Place half of the bratwurst in the bottom of a 5 litre slow cooker. Arrange half of the green pepper, red pepper and onion over them. Layer the remaining bratwurst over the top and top with the remaining red and green peppers and onion. Throw in the garlic and bay leaves. In a separate bowl, mix together half of the honey mustard sauce, liquid smoke and beer. Pour into the slow cooker. Add more beer if necessary to cover everything in the pot. Cover and cook on Low for 4 to 5 hours.
  2. Preheat barbecue for high heat and lightly oil cooking grate. Remove bratwurst from the slow cooker, but leave onions and peppers inside. Place bratwurst on the barbecue and baste with some of the remaining honey mustard sauce. Turn occasionally until slightly charred.
  3. Place bratwurst on rolls and use tongs to pull out a few of the onions and peppers from the slow cooker and drape them over the sausage. The onions and peppers are very tasty so don't forget this part!
