Had a hankering for some burgers and brats on the griddle. 4 oz. meat balls and brats. Onion slices for Griddlin.

I wanted to try something different with the brats….I butterflied them with the intention of putting jalapeños and cheese on them.

didn’t quite go as planned as they curled on me. Guessing I should have peeled the casing off them first.
using my high dollar burger smasher…

Not the prettiest of pictures but still ate good. Fully dressed burger…lettuce, pepper jack cheese, grilled onions, tomato, and pickles with mustard and ketchup. Brat had mustard grilled onions and jalapeño. Of course had to get the required close up for DRKsmoking DRKsmoking and tx smoker tx smoker .

Thanks for stopping in

Looks great Jim . I do brats on the flattop too . I keep them whole and use a dome with some water to steam . I'll try the split next time .

My plan was to cut them and form boats and then fill the boat with japs and cheese. Then they curled on me as I cooked them. Next time I’ll peel the case off and flatten them a little so the japs and cheese will stay on.

Nice spread.
No need to peel the casing. Just make lengthwise scoring cuts in the casing before half cut and also make a cut into the exposed meat. Sorry no photos to explain my method.

Got ya I see what you’re talking about now. I had thought the one cut would be enough. Next time I’ll do more.

Picture looks great to me Jim! I could get into that plate for sure. I really need to use my griddle more often.

Nothing wrong with that plan . Add some slits like suggested or use one of you cast iron skillets to weigh them down . I'm trying this some . I've only down them whole .
