Beer Bratwurst with Sauerkraut and Cheese Sauce

Bratwurst Main Pic

I love these Beer Bratwursts or Beer Brats!  Seriously, this is something that is welcome at my barbecue any day of the week!  They’re fun and delicious, so I never get any complaints.  The Bratwursts themselves are first boiled in beer before they are taken to the grill, and then I make the cheese sauce out of the leftover Beer from the boil.  The Sauerkraut is the Bavarian Style of making Kraut and it tops these Brats off perfectly.  So you’re looking at a Beer Brat that has been boiled in beer, grilled, then topped off with a Beer Cheese sauce and Sauerkraut.  Doesn’t that look Delicious!

And just so you know, I make the world’s best Onion Rings and Sweet Potato fries and I’ve got the links and recipes below!

Bodum Electric Indoor Table Grill and Griddle, Black


There’s just something about cooking right there on the dining table together with all the guests. It certainly creates more of a communal feeling than when the host is stuck in the kitchen while the guests are having a good time in the living room. This versatile electric table grill is more like two grills in one. The even side of the grill is perfect for pancakes, crepes and bacon. The wavy side cooks meats, fish and vegetables to perfection. It is so easy to switch between surfaces since the grill and griddle plate is one solid piece- just pick it up and flip it over to change sides. Both surfaces are made from non-stick coated aluminum, the handles from heat-resistant plastics. The table grill can be set to six temperatures, and it comes with a double-end heat-resistant spatula-one for each grilling surface. The powerful 1500 to 1800-watt heating element heats evenly and makes grilling a breeze. Whether your are making steaks, grilled cheese sandwiches, or pancakes, the large surface leaves plenty of room for cooking. The grill itself, as well as the drip pan underneath it is dishwasher safe. With the electric grill being perfect for cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner-why even own a stove, is the only remaining question. Available in black, red, green and orange.

Stromboli Recipe – How to make Stromboli Supreme

Stromboli Supreme main pic

My Stromboli is Huge!

I’m using enough pizza dough for one 14″ Pizza to make this Stromboli. It’s approximately 2 ft long so it makes it real easy to cut off a slice, just like you would a sub sandwich, to serve to family and friends.  Make yours however you want but I highly recommend making it this way.  The Stromboli is both fun to make and equally impressive when it’s served.

Stromboli

This Stromboli recipe follows the idea of a Supreme Pizza with fresh veggies and Italian meats but you can put whatever you want in it.  And that’s the best part.  I love vegetarian Stromboli’s because they have so much flavor.  Broccoli and Cheese Stromboli… Spinach, Onion and Mushroom Stromboli (Chicken)… Are you starting to see where I’m going with this?  The possibilities are endless!

Stromboli

You may need a good Marinara or Pizza Sauce for dipping so I’ll include a link for that down below.  You will also find a link for pizza dough in the ingredients if you need a recipe for that too.  Both recipes are restaurant quality and worthy of hanging on to or even sharing with friends and family.  Just be sure to tell them where you got it!
