Guinness Infused Bratwurst

So, remember that thing about how sometimes I like really classy, “elitist” food and then other times, I really like trashy, guilty pleasure food exactly like majority of the rest of the population of the world does?

Well, guess which one of those this recipe falls under…. Or don’t. Keep your tacky thoughts to yourself.

Sometimes dudes just need to do dude stuff and we don’t need anyone’s judgment. We just need your carbs.

A few years ago, we went to a Denver Broncos game (pretty standard thing for my life, nothing new). And before this particular day, I never really found myself emotionally drawn to any kind of “brat.” My German heritage mainly manifested itself in a love of beer and occasionally playing with my friend's German Shepherd puppy {So, basically I was super German}. However, I walked by the booth where they were grilling bratwurst with tons of veggies and sauerkraut. Maybe it was the "non-indulgent/totally normal" amount of beer filling my belly, all I know is that it was definitely love at first sight.

I actually like this recipe because it takes me back there just a little bit, but by adding a few classic ingredients, it makes me feel less like a frat-dude and more like a renaissance-dude.

Ya feelz me?

Guinness Infused Bratwurst

1 Bottle Classic Guinness Beer

1 Cube Chicken Bouillon

2 Cups Water

1 Package of Bratwurst

Bring the water, Guinness, and Bouillon to a light boil. Poke holes all throughout the brats and gently drop them into the pot. Let them mingle in there for about 8-10 minutes.

Transfer them to a grill or skillet and finish cooking them, until they reach an internal temperature of 140-165 degrees. Serve them with some fancy (or trashy) toppings, however you like. Personally, I love some sautéed bell peppers and onions but who am I to tell you how to live your truth?

However, this is going to be so delicious for your life and it takes about negative zero minutes so you’ll have plenty of time to watch that embarrassing show you’ve been hiding on your Netflix queue.
