Bacon Wrapped Chees Sttuffed Brats

Back to Sausages, Brats & Dogs

from Carrie Florida!

I run the tailgate for the 1270 WFLA Seminole sports pre-game show, so I have to do it up right as a role model for others. We have the best time just grilling and cheering on our noles. Attached is a the most popular item I have ever made and is hands down my most asked for recipe.

6 cans of Beer
Package of Bratwurst
1 sweet or yellow onion (sliced)
1 Package of bacon (Not-cooked)
1 block of cheddar or Monterey jack cheese (I use the pepper jack) sliced in 3inch long ½ thick chunks
Package of hot dog buns or hoagiesToothpicks

Step 1- Boil Brats and onions in Beer. Drain and let cool

Step 2- Slice Brats open scoop out part of center for room for cheese. Add cheese in and close the Brat.

Step 3- starting on the end toothpick a piece of bacon and then wrap around brat to the other end securing with another toothpick

Step 4- Drain the leftover onion and place in a foil pouch

Step 5- Grill Brats on open rack flipping until bacon becomes fully cooked. (The brats were previously cooked so you just want them to be hot. Add the foil package of onions to the grill to re-heat

Step 6-Serve Brats on Bun with onions and a dab of mustard (optional)
