Pepper & Cheese Hasselback Bratwurst are hitting the grill tonight! Plain brats are good, but these grilled brats are stuffed with peppers and cheese!
What Does Hasselback Mean?
There’s a lot of recipes you see these days for HASSELBACK POTATOES or Hasselback chicken, it’s basically making some cuts into the item you’re cooking and stuffing it.
So you can do this with vegetables or protein – or both!
Making something in “hasselback” style like these Pepper & Cheese Hasselback Bratwurst is not only an impressive presentation but it’s darn tasty, too. With layers of flavor in every bite, how can you go wrong?
Also, it’s one of those recipes that does look impressive but it really isn’t that hard to make at all.
How Do You Make Hasselback Bratwurst?
Start off by grilling the bratwurst. You’re going to cook them almost all the way though really because once you stuff them with the peppers and cheese it’ll just be to melt the cheese.
Next make 5 cuts about 3/4 way through the brats and get them stuffed with your peppers and cheese.
I put mine in a grill pan to spare my grill from drippy cheese clean up, but if you don’t have a grill pan you can put them right back on your grill or even in a foil pan.
The bratwurst will only need another few minutes on the grill to melt the cheese…then you can pile them on buns and serve.
