Maple-Mustard Grilled Bratwurst Patties

Maple-Mustard Grilled Bratwurst Patties

Hearty enough for a lumberjack, simple enough for a quick meal, these bratwurst patties get a nice jolt of flavor from three simple ingredients.

Prep Time



Total Time






cup pure maple syrup
tablespoon chopped fresh chives
tablespoons Dijon mustard
(3 to 4-oz.) fresh or frozen bratwurst patties, thawed
  1. Heat closed contact grill for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine maple syrup, chives and mustard; mix well. Cook over low heat until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.
  3. When grill is heated, place bratwurst patties on bottom grill surface. Close grill; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until browned and no longer pink in center.
  4. Brush tops of patties with syrup mixture. Close grill; cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until glazed. Serve remaining warm syrup mixture with patties.

Kitchen Tip
Be sure to use the drip tray that is included with our contact grill. The trays vary in appearance depending on the brand of grill, but all serve the same purpose: draining drippings and fat from your food to the tray. Be sure to watch carefully so the tray does not overflow.
