Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Brats

Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed BratsLooking for something else entirely the other day, I stumbled upon a recipe for bacon-wrapped stuffed hot dogs. Yum! The original recipe instructs you to spread ketchup and mustard along the inside cut before stuffing, but I've found it easier just to let everyone dip once they're cooked. We don't have a grill, so ours are oven baked, but I'll bet they're even tastier grilled over charcoal.

5 slices bacon
5 4-oz uncooked brats
1 c sauerkraut, drained
  1. Bake bacon for at 350°F until cooked but still floppy, about 20 min.
  2. Boil brats in water for 15 min or until heated through.
  3. Remove from water and slice deeply along the length of each brat, being careful not to cut completely through.
  4. Stuff brats with sauerkraut. Wrap one slice of bacon around each brat, securing with toothpicks.
  5. Bake on a rack set over a baking sheet in a 350°F oven for 20 minutes or grill over medium heat until cooked through.
