Ingredients

  • 1 pound bratwurst sausages, casing removed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/12 cups milk
  • 1 cup beer, such as Miller (headquartered in Milwaukee)
  • 1 package McCormick Pork Gravy Mix
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large skillet, cook and crumble sausage on medium-high heat until browned. Drain fat. Remove from skillet. Set aside.

In the same large skillet, melt butter on medium heat. Sprinkle with flour. Cook and stir 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk, beer, and Gravy Mix with whisk until smooth. Stirring constantly, bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken.

Gradually stir in shredded cheese until melted and smooth. Stir in cooked sausage. Spoon into 9-inch glass pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese curds.

Bake 15 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with soft pretzel bites or pretzel chips.
