I’m sharing #SausageFamily in my life as part of a Johnsonville sponsored series for Socialstars™
These Jalapeno Beer Brats are served on a bun with caramelized onions, sauerkraut and melted swiss cheese plus lots of jalapeno pepper slices. I don’t think brats ever tasted so good.
The best thing about these brats is they already have the beer flavor in the brats. I used Johnsonville® Brats Beer ‘n Bratwurst®. With these brats, you can have the flavor of beer without having to simmer them in beer before you grill them. I love that because it cuts out a whole step for me.
And what’s even better than that?
You can save all your beer for drinking. 🙂
I grill every chance I get during the spring and summer. I love how easy it makes clean-up. Brats are one of my favorite things to grill.
Especially Johnsonville® Brats. They are so juicy with tons of flavor and are always a fan favorite.
Johnsonville® Brats come in lots of different flavors including Cheddar, Chipotle & Monterey Jack, and Hot ‘n Spicy.
When grilling Brats, be sure the heat isn’t too high. Too much heat and they will burst open and lose all their juice. I like to cook mine on medium-low for a good 20 minutes.
To go with the brats, I sauteed some sweet onions until golden. They take about the same amount of time that the brats take to grill.
To serve the brats, I stuffed the buns with sauerkraut and then covered the brats with swiss cheese, caramelized onions, and jalapeno slices.
Talk about good. 🙂

Am I missing the beer in this recipe?
These look awesome! Have you tried using pepperjack? I have a hunch they would go together perfectly…
Oh my gawsh, Christin, these brats look AMAZING! I am obsessed with all things jalapenos, so these bad boys are totally calling my name! These look plump and packed with flavor! Seriously, I want to reach through my screen and scarf a few of these down! Pinned! Cheers, friend!
I’m probably weird, but I’ve liked sauerkraut since I was a kid. A brat with jalapeños and sauerkraut sounds wonderful. You’re making me hungry and it’s lunch! A bagel isn’t going to satisfy me now. ?
I don’t think I’ve ever had a beer brat and now I really want one! Those onions, jalapenos, and melted cheese — these are seriously amazing!
My husband would go nutssss for these! He adores brats and with all those awesome toppings??
I really like this recipe. Thanks for sharing 🙂
oh I am SO ready for summer grilling! We got a taste but now it’s cold and rainy 🙁 Hopefully soon we’ll be back at it! These will definitely have to go on the list!
Beer brats are the best, especially during the summer! These look amazing, Christin! I’m in love with that melty cheese and touch of spice!
Love that melty mild swiss cheese with the tangy jalapenos! So yum 🙂
