In a large pot, bring water to a rolling boil. Add the bratwurst links, onions and 2 cans of beer to the pot. Boil the bratwurst until they are white in color, approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Slice the brats on the diagonal, into medallions, and saute in butter in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Cook the brats until the skin is evenly browned. Add the onions to the pan and saute the slices in the butter until they turn golden. Serve the brats on top of the onions.
Parsley Boiled Potatoes:
In a large pot, bring water to a rolling boil. Add the whole potatoes to the pot and boil them until they become tender. Remove the potatoes from the pot and pour the melted butter and parsley over them.
Stuffed Carrot Canoes:
In a large pot, bring water to a rolling boil. Boil the carrots until they are slightly tender. Remove them from the water and cut a thin slice out of each carrot lengthwise. Scoop out the contents, leaving a 1-inch shell.
Puree the carrot pieces with mayonnaise, horseradish, grated onion and salt and pepper. Spoon the puree back into the hollow of the carrot.
In a small bowl, mix bread crumbs and 1 teaspoon of butter together until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the carrots. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of butter over the bread crumbs.
