Brat Bites

My husband got a new grill for his birthday, and he decided that he would christen it on the 4th of July with a new recipe, Brat Bites.

Brat Bites
  • Bratwurst - 1 package - each brat cut into 8 pieces
  • Onions - 1 large - sliced thin with a mandolin slicer
  • Jalapenos - 3-4 large - sliced thin with a mandolin slicer
  • Bacon - 1 package - slice the strips of bacon into thirds
  • Toothpicks - soaked in water for at least an hour

Take one piece of bacon, and place some thinly sliced onions on top.

Add a brat slice on top of the onion,
then add a slice of jalapeno on top of the brat.

Bring the bacon up over the top of the jalapeno
and secure with the water-soaked toothpick.

Hubby uses a wire rack, but the brat bites can be placed right on the grill.
It's easier for him to place and take off of the grill all at once.

Grill at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes with indirect heat.

Looking great!

Perfect! Ready to eat!
