Grilled Brats

  • 5 Bratwurst Sausages
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Parsley chopped

Beer Cheese

  • 8 oz Sharp Yellow Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 4 oz Emmentaler Swiss Cheese grated
  • 6 oz Light Beer
  • 3 cloves Fresh Garlic minced
  • 2 tsp Mustard Powder
  • 2 tbsp Flour
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce


Beer Cheese

  • Grate both the cheddar and swiss cheese into a large mixing bowl. Place it aside.
  • Add the beer, garlic, dry mustard, and Worcestershire sauce to a double boiler. Heat it on medium-high heat on the stovetop until warm.
  • In the mixing bowl that contains the grated cheese, add the flour and toss it with the cheese until it’s evenly distributed.
  • Add 1/3 of the cheese mixture to the double boiler and whisk until fully combined.
  • Repeat step 4 by adding the remaining cheese (small amounts at a time) until it’s fully combined and melted into a sauce.
  • Keep it warm until the brats are ready from the grill.

Grilled Brats

  • Chop a tomato, red onion, and parsley into small pieces. Add it to a bowl and place it aside.
  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  • Once the grill is preheated, place the brats onto the grill grate.
  • Grill the Brats until fully cooked by rotating them to different sides until they have a golden brown skin with grill marks.
  • Place the grilled brats into a fresh hotdog bun, top with beer cheese, and the veggie salsa mix.
  • Enjoy!


A double boiler is recommended but not required. You can cook it in a saucepan on the stovetop, but you’ll need to keep the heat low and stir frequently to prevent burning.
