Nueske’s Bacon Cheddar Bratwurst – Product Review

A few years back, my colleagues and I decided to go to the Milwaukee Brewers game and do some tailgating. The theme of the tailgate was to really have a blind brat tasting contest. Yes, we Wisconsinites love our brats. We had an array of brats from local butchers to the ring leaders such as Johnsonville and Klements. Johnsonville brats came out the winner, but recently there is a new winner in town. Nueske’s bacon cheddar bratwurst.  I have always been a fan of their products and hands down they have some of the best bacon out there. I was fortunate to get the love from Nueske’s and they sent me a care package if you will. It was loaded with products I have never seen in our local stores. Products such as ham, beef sticks, and their smoked sausage. I was excited to say the least to try everything.

The brats themselves look awesome. The package consisted of 5 brats, fully cooked and ready to heat and serve.

I decided to heat mine on the grill. After I got the coals going, I placed the brats on the grill, and cooked them a bit low and slow as I did not want to burst the casing with higher heat. Once cooked, I plated them. I was excited (I know I live a boring life) to say the least, and my wife who does not typically like some textures of brats decided to have one as well.

I served mine on a bun with a light coating of yellow mustard, and some chopped shallots on top.

First bite, was just this awesome taste. I loved the casing. It has this great snap to it, almost like you would get with a great weiner, and then the flavor of bacon and cheese just took this bratwurst over the top. My wife was in total agreement. I wanted another, but decided to hold back and save some for my kids. The following day, my sausage loving kid dug in, and was just was thrilled by the taste of these brats as well.

So a note to my local supermarkets, put these in stock. They are probably the best brats I’ve had to this date, and I’m not saying that because I love Nueske’s. I’m saying that because it is the truth. Head on over to Nueske’s and try them for yourself. I know you will not be disappointed by any of their products.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
