Wisconsin may be the cheese state, but bratwurst (ground meat sausages that are grilled, or in this case, pan-fried) are the state's culinary claim to fame. Due largely to residents' German ancestry, brats are a common site at butcher shops, restaurants and even baseball stadiums. (Madison, Wisconsin is home to an annual "Brat Fest") Michael Symon's simple recipe calls for the links to be cooked with onions, garlic and tangy sauerkraut and then served on a baguette.
