When it’s time for a grill-out or calling for finger food, Bacon wrapped brats are the winners. These are easy to make, can be cooked both inside and out, or for those group night out. If you love the crispy and greasy flavor, then this is it. Drizzle on some sriracha and watch out cause these pieces gonna ran out fast.
The process is fairly easy. You just cut the brats (for finger food length) or keep as a whole for buns and stuff. Bacon strips are also cut to the same size and wrap around the brats.
I found that pre-heating/baking to let some of the moist fat coming out then the bacon will be crispy faster if you’re using cooked brats. Otherwise, just throw them in at the same time.
Glazing with honey, ground pepper and mustard for enhancing flavor.
