Homemade Jalapeno Cheese Bratwurst

Homemade Jalapeno Cheese Bratwurst, my love of sausage making continues. I was surprised at how little heat there was in these brats, but they were jam packed with flavor!

Then, we mixed the leftovers together for a special lunch the next day served with mimosa’s made…

Of course, we have to take a grill with us and the Green Mountain Grills Davy Crockett is just perfect. It’s small enough to pop in the back of the car and big enough to grill/smoke just about anything. Ken suggested we make…
