The Ultimate Bacon Sandwich and more can be found by looking over at the bacon group on Flickr.
That reminds me of food item that was being kicked around at a Clemson tailgate last year. I think it was the brain child of Mike New and it is brilliant. Take the general concept of a corn dog but replace your normal hot dog with a brat and wrap said brat in a strip of bacon before you drop it in the batter and then the hot oil. If you can eat that and not die you get a badge.
This is getting there, but not exactly right.
While I like the idea, the implentation may be tricky. The dogs are usually precooked and just need a quick re-heating. Would it be ok to precook the brat & bacon before frying?
And could the juices be sufficiently contained with a wooden stick jabbed through the wonderful deliciousness that is the Johnsonville brat?
If they can get cheese into a brat, we can get a stick into one. I also think it won't matter too much because the grease from frying will likely get into the bratwurst anyway. Here's what I'd try:
Agreed. There must be some pre-deep frying cooking done. Maybe if you pre-cook it in a skillet with butter it will make things healthier. I'm not a doctor but at some point there has to be so much fat in one item that things loop back around to healthy. That just makes sense.
All the problems have been solved. Pre-boil the brats in beer.
