Octoberfest Brats in Pretzel rolls

Since it is the last weekend in October we decided to do little celebrating Octoberfest style.  I think Oktoberfest is actually over in Germany, but oh well.  

Used this recipe to make pretzel roll buns.

Grilled up some brats and some onions with a little butter n beer (the onions are hidden under the brats).

Then made up a beer cheese and mustard for topping.  I looked up a few recipes and just winged it.  A little beer, dijon and spicy brown mustard, a little butter, garlic salt and pepper.

Served with a side of German potato salad (cold...don't think that is traditional).

Eeetz goot ya.  

Lots of beer to accompany this of course.  Not German beers, the missus and I have been on an IPA kick lately and we tried a few different ones.  I think this was my favorite:

Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    The pretzels were really good...I would definitely do again.  Only complaint is since you actually dip them in boiling water they end up with a good bit of moisture.  They are really good right out of the oven, but after they sit for a while in a zip loc they get kinda soggy.  They are still pretty good reheated- but best to eat right outta the oven.

    I used King Arthur all purpose flour and KA bread flour.

    The pretzel rolls sold in German bakeries are fantastic. I've never been able to duplicate them.
