Bacon Wrapped Brats

It is summertime here in Enid, and that means everyone is pulling out their grills. Back yard bar-b-ques, cookouts, and family get-togethers are happening all over town. So I thought this is the perfect, easy recipe to throw on the grill, or cook in the oven or air fryer. You can use any flavor brat you like, I just happen to have Cheddar & Bacon Brats available today. I like to use thick-cut bacon for this because it seems to stay in place better. And you can use any type of cheese you choose, but I am a big fan of a good old sharp cheddar. This is definitely a crowd pleaser and once put on the table, they will not last long!



   5 brats, uncooked

   5 slices of bacon

   3 slices cheese, cut into 8 straps

Preheat grill, oven, or air fryer to 400°.

Cut open a “pocket” in each brat the length of your cheese slices. Divide cheese evenly between all brats & place it into the open pocket in each brat. Then, starting at one end, wrap a slice of bacon around each brat. Place on baking sheet for oven or cooking basket for air fryer. Cook at 400° for 15 minutes, turning over halfway through cooking. For the grill, place directly on the grill plate and cook for approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on your grill. (All brats should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°)

The Bacon Wrapped Brats can be eaten naked or on a bun with your favorite condiments. Serve with a nice potato salad or green salad for a fantastic meal!!

Happy Cooking!!
