Oktoberfest Lunch

The leaves are changing and fall is in the air. Why not celebrate in German style with a hearty Oktoberfest feast? Start out with a traditional appetizer of homemade pretzels with beer cheese. Once you see how easy it is to make your own scrumptious pretzels, you will wonder why you ever bought them at the supermarket. Grill some brats and top them with homemade quick sauerkraut and a savory homemade whole grain spicy mustard.
