It’s no secret that we love casseroles here at 12 Tomatoes. They are easy, often cheesy, and so warm and filling. What’s not to love? Sometimes, however, I get stuck in a rut with casseroles. I’ll always love tater tot casserole and chicken and wild rice casserole, but sometimes I want to try something totally out of the norm. Well, I found just the recipe to share with you today!

This Beer and Pretzel Casserole is perfect for game day, potlucks, and get-togethers. It’s something a little different that I’m sure you’re going to love! With soft pretzels, bratwursts, cheese, and an array of delicious spices, this is one recipe you’ll want to double!

To get started on this indulgent casserole, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 10-inch square casserole dish and set aside. Next, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook sausages, turning occasionally, for 8-12 minutes. When sausages are cooked, transfer to a cutting board and slice into 1/2- inch rounds. Place sausage a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

Return the pan to medium heat and add onion, red pepper, and garlic. Cook until softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Then, season with black pepper and add beer. Cook for about 2 minutes then remove from heat and transfer to the mixing bowl with the bratwurst.

Add the diced pretzels, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, thyme, stock, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and eggs to the bowl with the bratwurst and sauteed vegetables. Stir to combine. Finally, transfer to the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake until golden brown, about 35 to 40 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes and garnish with chopped parsley if desired.
