Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Brats are a must try on the grill this summer!

For this grilling recipe you only need a few ingredients – brats, cheese slices, bacon slices and toothpicks.  Before assembling the brats you will want to soak the toothpicks in water.  This helps them not catch on fire when on the grill. Soak for at least 30 minutes if not longer. When assembling the brats start by cutting a slice in the brat and stuff the cheese inside.

Grilling Tip - Pre Soak toothpicks!

Next start wrapping the bacon around the brat. Avoid overlapping the bacon so it cooks evenly. Keep the bacon in place by inserting toothpicks.  I use 3-4 toothpicks per brat. Once the Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Brats are ready, heat the grill and get to cooking! These brats are perfect for Father’s Day or any barbecue you may have this summer.  Be sure to give them a try, you will not be disappointed!

      How much cheese can I use to stuff bratwurst and could it work on a george foreman grill? Do you wrap it up with aluminum foil before putting it on the grill? How long will it take to cook? Reason why I’m asking is cause I did it with the jumbo hotdogs and I used alot of cheese and also wrapped it in cheese and then the Applewood Smoked Bacon then used aluminum foil. Also have another question for something else it’s about Deviled Eggs I’ve never made it before, so what is the best way for making it? Like what ingredients are used, how much for 18 servicings?

        1. To Bake: Place Sausage in an oven safe pan/skillet. Preheat oven to 350° F. Place sausage in oven for 20-25 minutes then turn to the other side. Be sure that it is thoroughly cooked.

  1. I always start the bacon in the microwave just for a short time to give them a head start on cooking.
    So on the grill they aren’t under or over cooked by te time whatever you wrap is done
