Game Day Brats Recipe

Looking for a twist on the usual tailgate fare? With French dressing and Monterey Jack cheese, these brats kick things up a notch! Instead of brats, you can also try this with cooked Italian sausage links, too. Laura McDowell — Lake Villa, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 fully cooked bratwurst links
  • 3/4 cup sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 6 tablespoons French salad dressing
  • 6 tablespoons shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 brat buns, split


  • 1. Make a lengthwise slit three-fourths of the way through each bratwurst to within 1/2 in. of each end. Fill with sauerkraut; top with dressing and cheese.
  • 2. Place bratwurst in buns; wrap individually in a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. x 10 in.). Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 10-15 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Yield: 6 servings.

"mary klug: The "onions" are sauerkraut - pickled cabbage, which is put into the brat then, the whole thing is wrapped in foil & cooked together."

"Do you grill the brats and onion together in the same foil?"
