This cheesy dip combines the flavors of football season in one bite! Brats, beer, mustard, sauerkraut and cheese. This is one of those dips that people will ask you to make week after week, game after game.

I used 3 brat links, but you could definitely use more, if you want your dip even meatier. For the beer, I went with Stella Artois, but any light / blonde beer will do. Add in loads of sharp cheddar cheese and some cream cheese for extra creaminess.

Beer-n-Brat Cheese Dip from Zestuous

You want to cook this slow and low. That will guarantee a creamy, non-gritty dip.

Then, to really bring the flavors together, I used Saucy Mama Smoky Garlic Mustard. Saucy Mama has an amazing variety of mustard flavors. So far, this one is my fave! Their Brat Mustard would work great, too.

I’ve been working with Saucy Mama for a few months now, and I’m so impressed with their passion for food and their generosity to share that passion with others.

Whip up a batch of this Beer-n-Brat Cheese Dip at your next football bash or tailgate party and snap a photo showing your sauciness!
