5 Cheese & Bratwurst Combos You Must Try By Nolechek's

5 Cheese & Bratwurst Combos You Must Try By Nolechek's

What's better than Nolechek's brats on their own? Well, Nolechek's brats with *cheese* of course! With the winter months quickly approaching, nothing's better than digging into a mouthwatering bratwurst blanketed in cheese that'll warm you right up! In today's blog post, we'll let you in on 5 cheese and brat combos you must try. 

1. Cheddar Cheese + Chaddywurst

This bratwurst is bursting with rich, full flavor. We start with our traditional bratwurst seasoning, add a hint of onion and garlic, pack it with creamy cheddar cheese and top it off with our Hickory Smoked Honey Cured Bacon. Add some cheddar to this baby, and you'll be ready to go. 

2. Pepper Jack Cheese + Mango Habanero Bratwurst

Speaking of H-O-T, don't let the sweetness from the dried mangos fool you. The taste of the sweet mangos is quickly followed by the heat from the habanero peppers. Can you handle it? In case you're looking for an even spicer experience, Pepper Jack Cheese is the perfect pair. Or, if you want to take the milder route, Mozzarella cheese is a perfect alternative. 

3. Provolone Cheese + Wild Rice & Dried Cranberries Bratwurst

The first specialty bratwurst created by Nolechek's in the 1990s and to this day remains our most popular specialty variety. Minnesota grown wild rice, paired with a hint of sweetness from Wisconsin grown cranberries, along with our traditional bratwurst seasoning and a touch of white pepper creates the perfect balance of texture and flavor. You can really make the flavor of this wurst pop with some Provolone Cheese––it adds to the body of the brat without taking away from it's flavor. Try it yourself and see!

4. Swiss Cheese + Inferno Bratwurst

The name says it all and takes heat to the next level. This bratwurst is packed with cayenne and jalapeno peppers. You may want to have your favorite beer nearby because this one is H-O-T. Pro tip: top off this brat with some Swiss cheese, and you'll be smooth sailing. 

5. Ricotta Cheese + Brat 'n' Kraut Bratwurst

Last but definitely not least, we have the ricotta and Brat 'n' Kraut combo. People often wonder if it gets anymore Wisconsin than a bratwurst with the sauerkraut in it! We pair authentic German barrel-style sauerkraut with a hint of caraway and brown sugar, along with our traditional bratwurst seasoning to create this fan favorite! Surprisingly, one of the best add ons to this bratwurst is Ricotta cheese: mild, slightly sweet, and oh so delicious!
