Bacon wrapped Beer Brats

Brats.  We eat a lot of them in the summer.   Also hot dogs, kielbasa, Italian sausages.   They can get monotonous after a while.    I've done the Brat Hot tub before, and I've made bacon wrapped hot dogs before, and this recipe seemed like a great combination of the two ideas.       I added a bit of maple sugar to the liquid mixture.     We went straight dijon mustard as a dipping sauce.  

These got devoured quickly and will definitely be made again and again!   Thank you Girl Carnivore  :)

                         Bacon Wrapped Beer Brats

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  6             strips  center cut bacon
  1                     bottled lager- used Sam Addams Summer Ale
  1                 tablespon  Worcestershire sauce
     1/2           teaspoon  dry mustard
     1/4           teaspoon  garlic salt
1 heaping tablespoon maple sugar
  6                     brats

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.  Bake bacon on a foil lined pan with a wire rack set inside for 10 to 15 mins.    Bacon should not be crisp or cooked through.     Turn oven down to 350 degrees.     Blogger suggests replacing the foil, I did not have much grease so I didn't.

Combine beer, worcestershire, dry mustard, garlic salt and maple sugar in a large skillet.   Pierce the brats and add to the mixture.    After it reaches a boil, simmer for 15 mins, making sure to flip brats for even cooking.   Remove and let cool a bit so you can handle them.

Wrap each brat with a slice of bacon and secure with toothpicks.   Lay them on wire rack, cook for 15 to 20 mins, flipping to crisp both sides.
