Beer Bratwurst Sliders

Yields1 Serving

 1 lb Uncooked Bratwurst Links, Casings Removed
 1 cup of Any King’s Road Beer (See Below)
 5 Thick-Sliced Bacon Strips, Chopped
 1 Large Onion, Finely Chopped
 2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
 8 oz Cream Cheese, Cubed
 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
 ¼ tbsp Pepper
 16 Dinner Rolls, Split and Toasted
 2 cups Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips, Crushed

1

In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving drippings. Cook bratwurst and onion in drippings over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, breaking into crumbles. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain well.

2

Stir in the beer. We recommend using Persistent One Pale Ale. The beer is well balanced and marries well with all of the other ingredients. For a slightly sweeter taste, use any of King’s Road’s more malt-forward beers like King’s Gold Lager, Revolutionary Red or Ice Scraper Pilsner. For a flavor that’s just a bit richer use darker beers like Black Musket Stout or Potter Street Porter.

3

Now, stir in in the cream cheese, mustard and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in bacon. Spoon 1/4 cup onto each roll; sprinkle with chips. Replace tops.
