TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 package (14 ounces) fully cooked smoked bratwurst links, sliced
  • 2-1/4 cups frozen pepper and onion stir-fry blend
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 cup beer or beef broth

"Well received. Liked the flavor the beer gave it.

One word of advice - serve immediately like the recipe advises. If you don't, it gets soggy fast!"
