Summertime often means brats and beer at my house! As an alternative to buns or rolls, we've combined these seasonal favorites in this delicious Cheesy Bratwurst Wraps recipe.
Actually, Leslie should be writing this post, having lived in Wisconsin for a couple of years! I'm sure she can attest to the fact that this dish would have been exactly what she would have found in some of the various watering holes there!
1 large onion, sliced thinly
1/2 c. thinly sliced green peppers (optional)
1 T. olive oil
2 bottles (12 oz.) beer - your choice, but a full-bodied ale works best in my opinion
1-2 T. steak sauce or BBQ sauce
1 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
4 flour tortillas, warmed
Pour beer into a saucepan, add bratwursts. Heat over medium-high heat about 5 minutes. Then, transfer the brats to a pre-heated grill. Finish by grilling another 5 minutes, turning to brown evenly.
Meanwhile... back to the stovetop. Saute onions and peppers in olive oil about 5-8 minutes, until golden brown. Stir in steak sauce or BBQ sauce.
Arrange tortillas: Add onion mixture, about 1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese and one bratwurst into each tortilla. Wrap the bottom side up first, then fold in the sides.
Serve with frosty cold ale on a warm summer afternoon!
