Directions

  1. Poke bratwurst several times with a small fork, and place into a saucepan with the beer. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the bratwurst from the beer, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and place a wire rack on top.
  3. Toss the brown sugar and cayenne pepper together in a large bowl and set aside. Cut each bratwurst into three pieces, wrap each piece with half strip of bacon, and secure with a toothpick. Toss the bratwurst with the cayenne mixture to coat, then place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the bacon is brown and crisp, 25 to 35 minutes.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Submitter here! I'm glad you like the recipe. I entered that the cayenne should be "to taste", so please forgive the spiciness, as that part did not go through. Add as much or as little as you like. Cayenne does not add much flavor, but only heat. Substituting smoked paprika for the cayenne would be great for those of you sensitive to heat.

I am usually not a fan of brats but these were so good! Someone made them for a potluck at work and I will be making these myself soon! The sweetness of the brown sugar was just right.

This was great! I used two cans of beer instead of three and that was plenty. It was a little spicy for my 6 and 4 year old so next time I'll cut the cayenne pepper in half. Great alternative for brats!
