Bacon Wrapped Bratwursts
Yield: 12 servings
Wash hands. Preheat oven to 425°F.
Pierce bratwursts with a fork. Then place in a large pot. Pour the beer over the brats and bring to a simmer Cook until the bratwursts are no longer pink inside. Remove the bratwursts from the pot, let cool, and then cut into 4 equal-sized pieces.
Wrap each brat piece in a half slice of bacon and secure it in place with a toothpick. Place the wrapped bratwurst on a baking sheet and repeat for the remaining bratwurst pieces. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix the chili sauce and brown sugar together. Generously brush the bratwursts with the mixture.
