Ingredients

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

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

In a large skillet, saute bratwurst for 1 minute. Add stir-fry blend; cook 3-5 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Set aside and keep warm.
In a large bowl, combine cheese and flour. In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in beer; heat over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan.
Reduce heat to medium-low; add a handful of cheese mixture. Stir constantly, using a figure-eight motion, until almost completely melted. Continue adding cheese, one handful at a time, allowing cheese to almost completely melt between additions.

"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!"
