Brat Burger Recipes

So today I cooked up some of the Johnsonville Brat Burgers for dinner.  The same brat burgers that you can enter to win free over on THIS POST.  They were supposed to be lunch, but we spent most of the day back to school shopping.  I am sure all of you moms understand the time warp that happens while in a store shopping for the 85 things on the back to school list.

Before heading home I picked up a few extra toppings for my brat burgers.  I had originally planned on using just the standard lettuce and tomato, but after reading some of the serving suggestions on the Johnsonville site I thought I would try out a couple of our favorite combinations.

First off was a combination that we often use on hot dogs.  Mayonnaise, avocado, and tomato.  My husband brought this idea home with him from Chile and it is one of my favorite; although, the mayo in Chile is yummier.  Use your favorite brand of mayo, add a little salt and pepper, then top it off with lots of yummy avocado and tomato:

This one is super easy to make and perfect for any summer barbecue.  The brat burgers taste exactly like my favorite brats, but are easier to dress up with my favorite ingredients.  Trying to keep diced tomatoes and avocado on a brat bun is not fun.

The second combination is one that we use for grilled chicken sandwiches and I thought might be fun with a brat.  The Hawaiian Teriyaki Brat Burger.

For this guy you grill up your brat burger and then coat it in a nice thick layer of teriyaki sauce.  You can make your own sauce, but I have a store bought version that I love.  Make sure it is thick and sticky so that it doesn't just run off the brat burger.  I put a slice of Swiss cheese on the bottom half of the bun, then the brat burger, slather some teriyaki sauce on top and then add a nice slice of grilled pineapple.

Sadly I had already turned off the grill before I remembered to grill the pineapple, so I put a fresh piece on top.  Don't make my mistake.  Grill the pineapple!!

If you love Johnsonville Brats than you will be equally as pleased with their brat burgers.  I was impressed with the size of the patties.  They are probably twice as big as the typical frozen hamburgers we buy and they kept their size and shape after cooking, something I can't say about hamburgers.

They are a great way to get the flavor you enjoy from a brat!
