  1. Combine the hard cider, 1 cup of the broth and the bratwurst in a large saucepan, bring to a simmer and gently simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining 1/2 cup broth and simmer until the onions are browned and completely soft, about 5 minutes more. Keep the onion mixture warm while you cook the bratwurst.
  3. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
  4. Transfer the bratwurst to the grill or grill pan and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 10 minutes. Lightly grill the pretzel rolls, cut-side down. Serve the bratwurst topped with the onions and with the pretzel rolls and mustard on the side.
