It is the hot season now in Arizona and as much as we want to grill more dishes, it might be impossible in the following days due to the extreme weather condition. Since we’ll be taking advantage of the weather while it’s still bearable, today’s recipe would be Bacon Cheddar Bratwursts with Root Beer Caramelized Onions. The name might be difficult to pronounce but trust us, the process would be a piece of cake and the end result would leave your mouth watering.
4 tbsp of butter
1large sweet onion, sliced
JBros Bro-B-Q Rub to taste (https://www.jbroscooking.com/post/bbq-sunrise-sandwich)
JBros SPG to taste (Salt, Pepper, and Garlic)
10 slices of bacon
1/2 cup of root beer
sliced or shredded cheddar cheese
Pre-heat grill to 400-450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the skillet on the grill and melt the butter stick. Add sliced onion and season with JBros Bro-B-Q and JBros SPG (salt, pepper, and garlic) to taste.
While the onion is being caramelized, wrap the bratwursts with two strips of bacon. Place the wrapped link in the grill.
Cook the bratwursts on indirect heat for 20-25 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Flip the meat frequently to prevent it from burning but make sure the bacon is crispy and not soggy. To toast it properly, cook in a skillet placed on the grill.
On the other hand, pour root beer on caramelized onion while it’s still cooking. Stir and simmer until the sauce thickens and the onions have a nice glaze.
Place the bratwursts in between the buns, then top with cheddar cheese. If a blow torch is available, melt the cheese with it. Then add the caramelized onion.
Serve while still hot. Enjoy!
