Bacon-Wrapped Bratwurst
Meat wrapped in more meat is awesome, and especially when the "more meat" is bacon. I could wax poetic on and on and on like some other people in this Recipe SWAT Team, but I'll opt for economy of expression here and just say: !@#$ — try this. (Besides, it only has three ingredients and takes 15 minutes to prepare.) Click here to see Dress Your Food in Bacon and Bacon Fat.

Pork pie
Not every pie needs to be filled with sweetness. Instead, use pork in the form of lard to flavor your pie crust and two kinds of pork sausage to fill your pie. This recipe by Leah Eskin was adapted from the “Great British Baking Show" and appeared in the Chicago Tribune.

'No-Name' Hot Dog
This never happens. I was completely stumped for a title on this one. So, the name is admittedly a bit of a cop-out — but that doesn't change the fact that this is a simple and delicious combination. Perfectly grilled brats in pillowy potato hot dog buns are topped with homemade mustard with a touch of cumin and zingy tart cornichons (instead of the usual sweet pickle relish). It works.

  The bratwurst in this recipe gets two cooking treatments. First, it’s simmered in a fragrant braising liquid made of fresh orange and lemon juice and Blue Moon’s Sunshine Citrus Blonde beer, and then it’s finished on the grill to give it a nice, flavorful char.
