Ingredients

  • 6 Bratwurst 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
  • ⅓ c. Low carb beer like Michelob Ultra

  3. 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.
  4. While the brats are baking, add 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter to a skillet over medium heat.
  5. Once the butter has melted, add ½ cup of heavy whipping cream.
  6. Whisk in 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and pepper to taste.
  7. Mix in 3 tablespoons of cream cheese, and whisk constantly until it is well combined.

  10. 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.
