I love a juicy, smoky grilled brat – your classic smoked bratwurst or a healthier chicken or turkey brat option, flavored brats like chili cheese, jalapeño cheddar, or stadium brats. I like them all. They are super handy to keep around for a quick and easy summertime dinner after a busy day. Just fire up the grill, heat through, grab a bun and done.
As for toppings, you can go classic with ketchup and mustard – my eldest insists I add relish to this list. Possibly some sautéed onions. Top with chili, cheese, and raw onion for a chili brat. Or one of our favorites is a jalapeño cheddar brat slathered with loaded guacamole. On this particular day, I had a fresh pineapple on the counter, so I made a spicy-sweet pineapple and avocado salsa. This flavor combo is fantastic. Then, I drizzled mine with a little Sriracha to finish it off, because… well… some like it hot. And when they say some they mean me.
