When Dan first suggested beer cheese on a bratwurst, I knew that I married the right guy. This notion instantly made my mouth water. The idea of beer combining with cheese and being smothered on a bratwurst, sounded like the perfect game day food. How could a recipe get any better than that? With all of our football recipes appearing on the blog each week, we have found one that could conquer them all. Of course all of our game day foods are incredibly tasty. However, these beer cheese bratwursts were the best combination of everything great about game day, making them the reigning champion in our books.
When I went to Wisconsin as a child, I remember eating plenty of bratwursts at my aunt and uncle’s house. It seemed like a delicious staple in that area, and I was envious of their consistent diet of tasty bratwursts. When we thought of what food could represent the Green Bay Packers, my mind wandered to that summer I spent in Wisconsin as a kid. The memories of those tasty sausages got me so excited to try them again – but this time with a cheesy twist.
Each week, we love thinking of game day foods to represent teams. We look forward to those meals so much, mostly because they are a fun, guilty pleasure. Eating something inventive and snack-like, breaks so many dinner rules and makes our meals so much more exciting. Being able to eat nachos or sliders on a Wednesday night, is a real treat. These game food recipes are one of our favorite things to focus on lately, and we hope you are loving the ideas for your next football gathering.
Even though I already hinted at it, I will formally announce who won this week. While we thought that the jalapenjo popper quesadillas were extremely cheesy and fantastic, there is something so tantalizing about these beer cheese bratwursts. Although I had never had this combination before, these brats seemed like a true football game staple. Therefore, the winner for this week is the Green Bay Packers. We are now 3 for 4 in predicting the game winners based on the dishes we make. While this seems like a ridiculous notion, it has somehow produced 3 (hopefully 4) correct predictions. We think this is hilarious and cannot track our success throughout this season!
Whether or not you are a Green Bay fan, these beer cheese bratwursts are an incredible addition to your usual football spread. We were blown away by these treats and how easy they were to make. In just 20 minutes, you will have one of the best game day foods we have ever tasted. We hope you make them to cheer on your team!
