Bratwurst sandwich with beer braised onions and beer cheese sauce

Use a German lager or German style lager. It’s Oktoberfest season and my favourite Ontario brewery has an Oktoberfest lager out, so I used that.

The recipe makes way more cheese sauce than you need for 2 sandwiches, so either make more sandwiches (and onions) or I recommend my warm potato salad or soft pretzels to use up the rest of the cheese sauce.
