I've got my menu figured out, thanks to some of you. Now I need some recipes. I've done some googling, but would love to hear if any of you have some recipes you know are good for the following:
Bratwurst -- I'd like to avoid having to go outside and grill during the party. Any good stovetop recipes? Or do I simply simmer in beer and serve with good mustard?
Soft pretzels -- I have a recipe but it has a lot of butter in it and looks Americanized. Any authentic German recipes out there?
Cowboy beans -- not too spicy
Killer cornbread -- something out of the ordinary that would go great with the beans or chili.
Thanks everyone! I'm getting excited about this feast.
