The Blazing Saddle

Turbo-chop a red jalapeño, green jalapeño and some onion. Bun the brat, add the choppage, slap a slice of muenster over the brat and bun, hot sauce the cheese and melt on the grill. Giddyup!

This was 9 out of 10 of my entries in the Johnsonville Brattender 2012 Brat Cocktail contest, and the winning concoction. Thanks again for the Weber Summit S-670 grill, Johnsonville!

The Sugar Daddy

Sprinkle brown sugar on a brat right after the grill-to-bun maneuver. Add a stripe of raw wildflower honey & a stripe of amber agave. Top with bacon that’s been baked with brown sugar. That’s rich!

Apricot in the Act

If you’ve ever had apricot-glazed ham, you’ll know this one’s going to scandalize your taste buds. After bunning your brat, add equal parts apricot preserves and mild deli mustard. Criminally good.

Note: This combo worked, but next time I’ll keep it ultra-simple and just top with the apricot preserves. Because apricots+piggy=heaven.

Pig in a Poncho

Mexico by way of North Dakota. Lightly grill a tortilla and roll a brat in it along with some hand-ripped leafy lettuce, enchilada sauce, hot sauce, sour cream and dry cottage cheese curds. Bueno, eh?

Note: Be careful of the type of brat you use with this combination — I first tried this with one that tasted like those little breakfast sausages and the flavors got a little funky.
