I was first introduced to brats during college. Mind you, I don’t like hot dogs but I do love me a good grilled brat. And this recipe is perfect for tailgating or just throwing on the grill for a day of football. But what makes this recipe even more perfect is the addition of bacon. After all, everything tastes better with bacon. Yum!
6 pieces of bacon
2 onions, sliced
2 green peppers, cut into strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 bratwurst buns
Wrap a piece or bacon around each bratwurst. Use 2-3 toothpicks to hold bacon in place. Place a soaked skewer through each bratwurst. This keeps the brat from curling up when cooking.
Cook bacon wrapped brats on the grill over medium-high heat. Rotate the brats a couple of times while cooking. Grill for about 7-10 minutes or until brats and bacon are cooked all the way through.
While the brats are cooking, add onion and green pepper in a medium skillet that has been coated with olive oil. Sauté until tender over medium high heat.
Serve bacon wrapped brats in buns with onions and peppers. Serve warm.
