Hey sports fans, it is officially dawg season.

Can I get an Arsenio Hall, “Whoop, whoop, whoop?”

I can’t tell you how excited I am that football season (ehem…tailgating season) is here. I love watching my alma mater win; and of course I love watching them more when a plate of nachos, potato skins, and a juicy beer brat are out in the parking lot.

Nothing is off limits when it comes to tailgating: cold beer, cocktails, or even a batch of Purple Passion (very popular back in the day). K-Stater’s, you know what I’m talking about.

Let’s be honest, we tailgate because of the food. Who can resist the chili bars, burgers, barbecued ribs, nachos, and my all-time favorite, brats? Football season is the only time of the year I fancy a grilled dawg. There’s something nostalgic about eating a juicy brat on a cold day that get’s you fired up for the game.

Another great thing about dawg season are toppings!! Besides dawgs, don’t’ forget that potato sides need savory options, too. Imagine going to a tailgate bash and having over a dozen topping options to put on your mashed potatoes, tater tots, or fries! I’d die. Um, yes, I’ll have the queso, jalapenos, and a little bit of pico on top of my tater tots. K. Thanks.

I thought it would be fun to add an old-school topping to this beer brat. Ratatouille is a French dish comprised of sautéed veggies and is fantastic on it’s own, as a side, or as a topping. So, I grilled a brat, and topped it with the veggie mixture. However, before I took a bite, I knew it needed something extra. BOOM. Bechamel sauce. A dusting of spicy gravy made this entire dawg experience score a tailgate touchdown.

Now, can I get another, “Whoop, whoop, whoop?”

In conclusion, our culinary journey with ratatouille beer brats with spicy bechamel sauce is a symphony of flavors. Elevate your grilling experience with this vibrant delight, where every bite reflects a fusion of culinary excellence and Friday indulgence. Stay tuned for more delectable recipes!
