Spicy-Sweet Bacon-Wrapped Brat Bites

Spicy-Sweet Bacon-Wrapped Brat Bites


  • 3 gluten free beers
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 bratwursts (I used 3 organic chicken brats from Whole Foods)
  • 6 pieces of uncured bacon, cut in half
  • 12 toothpicks
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha (or preferred hot sauce)…another tablespoon if you like it hot! :-)
  • 1/4 cup parsley (optional garnish)


  1. Bring 3 beers, onions, and brats to a boil in a saucepan.  Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Let cool.  Cut brats in quarters.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  4. Wrap each brat section with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  5. Whisk together maple syrup and hot sauce.  Brush onto the wrapped brat sections.
  6. Place on a broiler or raised rack over a cookie sheet (to catch the bacon drippings).
  7. Cook for 35 minutes until bacon is crisp. Garnish with optional chopped parsley.
  8. Enjoy!

    I’m thinking why not just make these on the grill. You cook the brats and then bake another 35 min, they will be over cooked.

  2. What could you substitute for the beer? I'm just not into beer, even cooking with it but it sounds delicious besides that!
