Cheddar Brat Dog Wickles Kraut
I mentioned this early this week in a post about watching football and eating bad food. Jill always request that I whip up my nachos or my hot dogs. We went with the Cheddar and Beer Brat given the Packers were playing. We enjoyed these while watching the Packers beat our Cowboys. Cough…questionable “no catch” call. Even if the Cowboys scored Aaron Rodgers was playing unstoppable so with 4 minutes they likely would have scored anyway.
On to the dog. I posted a hot dog recipe called Mr Jones and Me Hot Dog. I loosely use that as my base for hot dogs. I love the sweet, spicy, mustardy, krauty relish concoction I make to top the dog. The blistered wiener and the creamy but sharp freshly grated cheddar just work together with that relish kraut. So good… So easy.
Lastly a shout out to Wickles Pickles. I have them listed as product I always have on hand. Both the relish and the pickles. Damn they are so good. Sweet, Sour and Spicy. You really need to try them.

It’s a hot dog people. There are two steps I take that might be unique.
1. I split my wiener in half and place a lid on top of them while they are cooking on medium heat. Jill and I like them partially black.
2. I put 2 parts kraut 1 part Wickles Pickles Relish and a handful of jalapenos diced up and mustard. I cook this on medium heat until it’s starting to dry out and crust up on areas.
