Glenn brought in two snacks made from two different flavored brats and his most popular steak sauce. Using his regular brat recipe and his Jalapeno & Pepper Jack Cheese brats, slice these links, cook them in a sauce pan. When the pieces are cooked, pour an ample amount of Glenn’s Sweet Onion Steak Sauce over the brat pieces and glaze. Transfer to a plate, supply tooth picks and your favorite cracker to place each slice on. Voila! Your extra ordinary snack!

If you’ve never tasted venison, you would never believe something like these snacks made from this wild game could taste so good.
