I grew up having brats all the time.  I am from Wisconsin, and they are just kind of required. And the best way to have brats is by cooking them in beer. It is just how it is.

But you can dress up your brats and make them even more delicious by adding bacon.  Bacon just makes everything better, right?  Especially thick cut bacon, because more bacon is always a good thing.

Today I am working with Wright®Brand Naturally Smoked Hickory Bacon to bring you this great recipe for Father’s Day. I know for sure that all the dads in my life will go crazy for this beer brat recipe.  I mean bacon, beer, and brats kind of just scream “Dad!”

Wright Brand Naturally Smoked Hickory Bacon is thick-cut, which makes for the perfect bacon experience.  It is hand-selected and hand-trimmed and smoked over hickory chips for eight hours.  It cooks up perfectly every time.  And I love that it comes in a re-sealable bag, so I can just make a few pieces and then throw it back in the fridge for next time.

Beer brats may be the base of this recipe, but the bacon and avocado are what makes it extra special. Crispy, smoky bacon with creamy, buttery avocado is just a great combination.  I add avocado to everything, and if bacon is involved, then I almost always find a way to add it.  BLTs?  They are nothing without avocado! Or like I call them BLATs.

BLT Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs were a huge hit at our house too.  You have an entire slice of bacon wrapped around a hot dog. Then it is grilled and topped with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and a spicy mayo.  If you have any bacon leftover after making these brats, that should be next on your list!

Father’s day is all about grilling and making dad feel special.  So this year these Bacon Avocado Beer Brats are it!  I like to boil my brats in beer for about 20 minutes, then just put them on the grill to get a little color.  I find if you cook brats completely on the grill they get too dark and just taste charred.  So this is how to cook bratwurst in my book!

Do you have a tradition for Father’s Day?  Does Dad get to pick what you do or what you eat?  It seems like Mother’s Day is all about brunch and then Father’s Day is all about grilling.  At our house it changes each year based on what we are doing.  But usually it is waffles and bacon for breakfast, because that is my husband’s favorite. Then dinner is definitely from the grill.

This year these Bacon Avocado Beer Brats are on the menu for sure.  But I think some of the extra bacon is going to get turned into Bacon Cheeseburger Dip, because that is always a hit at our house. Pick up plenty of Wright Brand Naturally Smoked Hickory Bacon, so you can make all the bacon recipes you want!

So when you are thinking of dad, summer, or grilling make sure you add these brats to your menu.  I may have had dad in mind when I came up with the recipe, but I would pick them for dinner any night of the week!
