Touchdown Brat Sliders

It's game time when these mini sausage sliders make an appearance. Two things my husband loves—beer and brats—get stepped up a notch with crunchy flavored chips. —Kirsten Shabaz, Lakeville, Minnesota

  • Makes
    16 sliders

Ingredients

  • 5 thick-sliced bacon strips, chopped
  • 1 pound uncooked bratwurst links, casings removed
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 cup dark beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 16 dinner rolls, split and toasted
  • 2 cups cheddar and sour cream potato chips, crushed

Directions

  • In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving drippings. Cook bratwurst and onion in drippings over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, breaking into crumbles. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain well.
  • Stir in the cream cheese, beer, mustard and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in bacon. Spoon 1/4 cup onto each roll; sprinkle with chips. Replace tops.
