How Long Do You Cook Brats In The Oven?

At 425 degrees, brats typically cook in about 25 minutes. Oven can run differently, however, so it’s best to check their internal temperature with a meat thermometer. The cooked brats should be at least 180 degrees in the center. Then you know that they are ready to be served.
