Maple-Bourbon-Mustard Glazed Bacon Wrapped Brats


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Wrap each brat with a slice of bacon leaving each end of brat uncovered.
  3. Mix together the maple syrup, bourbon whiskey, mustard, black pepper & Italian seasoning together in a small bowl to make glaze.
  4. Place bacon wrapped brats on a baking sheet pan. Brush generously with maple-bourbon-mustard glaze.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes and reglaze brats. Bake until bacon is well-cooked and crispy on the edges. Another 10-15 minutes. It will take longer if you use thick cut bacon. Remove pan from oven.
  6. While brats are cooking mix together cole slaw mix, chopped apple & dressing.
  7. Place some cole slaw in bun and top with bacon wrapped brats. Add more slaw and pickle slices.


The brats can also be cooked on a grill if you like.
