Bratwurst Sliders are a little piece of heaven. Grilled to perfection and made even better with the addition of fried onion strips and homemade beer cheese sauce all on pretzel buns. This recipe is courtesy of, How to Feed a Loon.
- For the Beer Cheese: After you have shredded the 2 cups cheddar cheese, make the roux by melting the 2 Tbsp. butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the 3 Tbsp. flour until completely incorporated. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes.
- Add the 2/3 cup beer and stir until incorporated. Next, add the 3/4 cup milk, 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp. paprika, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Stir continuously, until the mixture begins to thicken and coats the back of a wooden spoon, usually about 3 to 5 minutes.
- Sprinkle in the cheese and stir until melted. Taste and add more salt, if desired.
