Calories 657kcal

Ingredients

  • 6 brats with no sugar listed in the ingredients
  • 12 Slices of bacon with no sugar added
  • 3 tbsp. Butter unsalted
  • ½ c. Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder
  • Pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp. Cream cheese
  • c. Low carb beer like Michelob Ultra
  • 2 c. Shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wrap each bratwurst with two slices of bacon, covering the entire length of the sausage.
  • Place the bacon wrapped brats on top of a baking rack that has been placed inside a baking sheet, and cook in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
  • While the brats are baking, add 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter to a skillet over medium heat.
  • Once the butter has melted, add ½ cup of heavy whipping cream.
  • Whisk in 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and pepper to taste.
  • Mix in 3 tablespoons of cream cheese, and whisk constantly until it is well combined.
  • Pour in ⅓ cup of low carb beer. Michelob Ultra has only 2.8 net carbs per serving, and a full serving is not used in this recipe.
  • Add in 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese. Whisk the mixture until well combined.
  • Turn the sauce down to low and simmer to thicken while the brats finish cooking. Whisk the mixture once in a while being sure to scrape the bottom so the sauce does not burn.
  • Serve the brats on keto friendly bread or sliced into pieces that makes them easy to dip into the cheese sauce and enjoy!
