Football season is here! My guys are pretty much obsessed with football. It doesn’t matter if it college or the NFL. It doesn’t matter what team is playing. They want to watch it all. And what makes watching all those games better? Lots of great food!  A gooey cheese dip pretty much ranks at the top of the list for good game day food. But I found a way to make cheese dip even better…add brats!

You may remember when I shared the One Pot Cheesy Sausage Pasta recipe that use Klement’s Sausage Company. Well, I am back again with another recipe featuring their sausage. This time I used Cheddar Brats. Klement’s Sausage is from Wisconsin, and what scream Wisconsin more than brats and cheese. And beer. There is beer in the dip too. Growing up in Wisconsin weekends were based on the Badgers playing on Saturday and the Packers playing on Sunday. Families and friends would get together with tons of food to watch games. Or if you were lucky enough to have tickets, you would be tailgating before the game with lots of food. Either way, food and drinks are involved football weekends.

A staple at most football parties is brats. You boil them in beer, sometimes with onions, and then grill them to perfection. The Klement’s cheddar brats are great for any tailgate, but they also make one tasty addition to this brat cheese dip. I diced them up into small pieces, and sauteed them until they were crispy. Makes the cheese dip a little heartier and will surely impress any game day guests you have. You could even keep it warm in a crock pot if you are tailgating or traveling to a party. My husband loves it served with soft pretzel bites, but tortilla chips, crackers, and even veggies would work. You could even put it over tortilla chips as a nacho cheese sauce!!

Klement’s Sausage started over 60 years ago in Milwaukee. They focused on genuine old country flavor, and grew quickly because of it. The cooked and smoked sausage are created from old world European recipes that have been passed down for generations using only the finest ingredients and comes in a variety of flavors. Even all these years later, the focus is still on a perfectly seasoned sausage with lots of hard work and dedication. Delicious to enjoy year round, not just for your summer grilling.

You may have to add some milk or something to thin it out. But I would cook as directed and then place in the crock pot to keep it warm
