How to Grill Bratwurst
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat – about 375℉.
Place the bratwurst on the preheated grill and cook, turning frequently, for about 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
To ensure even cooking, make sure each side of the bratwurst is exposed to the heat for about 7 minutes. The internal temperature should be 165°F.
Remove the bratwurst from the grill and place them on a plate. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes before slicing brats to add swiss cheese.
Fold swiss slice to fit into the bratwurst slit.
Add it to the bun and then top with the grilled onions and peppers.
How to Grill Onions and Peppers
Grilling onions and peppers is an easy way to add great flavor to your bratwurst dogs!
- Onions (any variety)
- Peppers – Bell or sweet peppers work best
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Aluminum foil (optional)
Start by prepping the vegetables. Slice onions into 1/2-inch-thick rounds and cut peppers into strips or chunks, removing any seeds or membranes. Place vegetables on a large sheet of aluminum foil (optional) and drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste.
Preheat to medium-high heat (around 375 °F). Place the onions and peppers over direct heat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until the desired doneness is reached.
When finished grilling, transfer the vegetables to a plate to add to the bratwurst.

Game day was made for a barbecued sausage and that cooker is the next best thing to cook them. I will show this griller to all my snow and cold frustrated winter grillers to get so they can cook year round.
Lisa Favre says
I totally need this grill! It gets cold where I live so grilling is not even a possibility for a majority of the year… this is a great solution to that!

We love brats in our house. What an awesome game day snack idea these are. Yum.
I am hungry as it was, but after reading this I am practically drooling! I think I am going to make this for dinner!
Becky Willis says
I have never seen a grill like this. I have to get one for each of my sons for their birthday or next Christmas. They would totally love using it. Your grilled brats look so good and perfect for the big game!
Dawn Lopez says

Sausage grill? How awesomely cool that is! I love how easy it makes to put these adorable sausage sandwiches
valmg @ Mom Knows It All says
Now that is a neat grill! I’ve never seen one like that before, if we had one it would get a workout here as we don’t cook outside after it gets cold.

This is so perfect for the big game! My husband will surely love this!
No way! My husband would LOVE that sausage griller!
Looks like it works great, but I don’t think I’d consider it a grill. Especially since it doesn’t leave those cool grill marks!
