Nothing says summer like grilling outside with your family, friends and neighbors. I’m sure everyone is making plans to celebrate our nation’s birthday with a cookout. And for me, that means grilling up a bunch of Brats.
I love a good brat with just a little deli mustard, but I also like to have fun with my food. So I came up with three different ways to serve up these delicious grilled bratwurst.
Before I start cooking I like to gather my ingredients together forming my mise en place (everything in its place). It makes cooking easier and faster when you have everything ready to go!
I had a hard time deciding on which style Brat to use. They have a brat for every occasion. Since I was going to make some fun flavors with my brats I decided to get the Original Bratwurst.
Brats are the original “thrill for the grill” that started an American fun food revolution. Perfect for any occasion and a favorite at picnics and barbecues everywhere. You can have fun coming up with your own toppings, mixing and matching for every occasion.
Let’s start off with a Breakfast Brat. Hickory smoked bacon and a fried egg.
Then it’s time to spice things up a bit with my version of a buffalo blue cheese brat.
Last but not least I created a Baltimore Brat, by topping a Johnsonville Brat with sautéed shrimp seasoned with old bay.
But any way you serve them you can bet your friends and family are going to love these Brats!

I love the idea of a breakfast brat. Everything goes better with bacon and the brat with shrimp is one of those “now why didn’t I think of that” moments.

Thanks Bob! I have to admit that the shrimp surprised me when I thought of it, but it really did go well with the Brat!
