Lots of cheese in these brats!

    Had some extra Philly Cheese Steak brat mix left and decided to make brats with pepper jack cheese incorporated, a 5 pound batch. Never made brats before; use the mix to make stix previously. Double ground the venison/pork 50/50 mix with a large plate, twice. Came out looking fine; the white chunks are the cheese. Fairly large sheep casings; 38 maybe. Can't exactly remember. No cure.

    Super cold out so couldn't get these on the grill and decided to pan fry.

    Yup; lots of cheese in these brats; 20 ounces added to 5 pounds. Couldn't get them done as I wanted pan frying whole brat, so sliced up and finished frying as a snack for folks.

    That worked pretty good; nicely browned on each side and sealed cheese in. Served with tooth picks and folks ate them up! Anxious to try a whole one on a bun to see how that compares. We usually grill them and then simmer in beer with onions, but this snack idea works, especially when grappling with a whole brat at happy hours is too messy. Wonder if I should try chopped onions in the mix next time?

    Taste very good cut up and fried like above. But still haven’t done any on grill as have been out of town and it’s been extremely cold out. End of week should work out though. They have to be good off the grill but am interested in seeing how they work out on a bun with all that cheese.
  17. Super great job, and yes maybe try the onions next time.
    If you need some help, give me a call, I can eat a ton of those. :rolleyes:
