Bloody Mary Brats---Give them a try, you will not be disappointed.


I love this recipe.  These brats are good on game day or just if you want to have some friends over for a gathering on your deck or patio.  Your dinner guests will ask for this recipe, there is not question about it.  Everyone that I know, loves these brats.  Served up on a "crusty bread bun" is the best way to serve them, in my opinion but many people will just eat them sliced up on their plate with the peppers and the sauce.


  • 10 brats, I prefer spicy brats but any style works with this recipe.
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 orange pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 poblano pepper, sliced
  • 1 bottle of Bloody Mary mix. (I use Zing Zang bold but any type of mix will do)
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 10 Hoagie or Sausage buns


  1. Melt butter in a pan/skillet add in onion, celery, peppers.  Cover and allow to cook for about 20 minutes stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender.
  2. Add the bottle of Bloody Mary Mix and allow to simmer uncovered.  While the sauce is simmering grill your brats, once the brats are fully cooked, add them to the sauce and pepper mixture and allow them to simmer for a few more minutes.
  3. Serve in a bun topped with the vegetables and ladle out a small bowl of the sauce for dipping.
  4. ENJOY!!  
I prepared this entire outside on my patio.  I used my Charbroil Commerical grade infrared grill with side burner.  I have had this grill for several years and it has been the best that I have ever owned.  If you get a chance, check it out on the charbroil page linked below.

Drink Pairings

Beer or Ale-Any style of beer will compliment this diner.  I would recommend something like Ruckus IPA from Lockport Brewing or Falls IPA from Hoodletown Brewing company.  French Ridge from Millersburg Brewing is another strong choice for this meal.

Wine-I would definitely recommend a "hearty" red wine with this meal.  Dusty Dewey from French Ridge Vineyards is a good choice as is the Cabernet Sauvignon from Josh.

For a cocktail, what better choice than a Bloody Mary, if you are really feeling adventurous you could use a chunk of the bratwurst as a garnish along with a celery stick and a couple of jalapeno slices.
