I have purchased 4 pounds of bratwurst and some syringes and would like to use the syringes to inject the cheese into the bratwurst. what is the best way to melt the chesse so I can do this? John:roll:;)

I'd put the cheese on the brats after grilling.

If you want cheese brats then you could have just purchased cheese brats no? Either that or make your own by adding cheese to the forcemeat before stuffing the casings.

?????????t wont work, cheese will solidify in syringe. Maybe a hot glue gun that stays hot??? Dont know. Whole thing sounds insane and a waste of time . Buy Johnston Brats with cheese. already made.:rolleyes:

What Kuan said.
Further, if you inject it, it will just come back out as you cook it. You'll overpressurize the casing and maybe burst it.

You can also buy them this way, though the commercial ones I've had have been particularly vile. I have a friend who loves them though.

Cheese has to beaded before stuffing.

What about a larding needle? The cheese'd still leak out though...I know, use a larding needle, run it all the way through the center and out the other end lengthwise, then plug the holes with a whole peppercorn.:D

edit: I meant larding, not barding.

Is it just me, or do other people get grossed out by stuff gushing out of sausages?
Remember those ads that had the chili and cheese stuffed hot dogs. They'd break open and start oozing chili and nacho cheese sauce.
Eeeeewwwww!

I would have to say that if you are intent on getting the cheese into the brat mix......take tham out of the casing, dice your cheese of choice, mix and patty like a burger. Not exactly the answer you were looking for but along the lines of what most have already said, it's gonna be a difficult mess if you try and get the cheese in the casing too.

If you buy them at a store that does sausage.....ask if you can get a couple casings. Then find a hand stuffing funnel, (large funnel the casing fits over) and restuff them. But this is probably more work that you're looking for.


I'd go with a Brat burger I suggested at the beginning.:D;)

Any cheese that will go through a syringe is not worth eating.

Oh c'mon....someone must know how - I'd like to try it myself. Does sound like a hard task tho.

Maybe sticking a thick skewer down the middle, wiggling a hole in it, then pushing sticks of cheese of choice gently in with said skewer? You will of course get leakage out of one end, but hey, fried cheese is evil and decadent and a cook's treat in these cases :)

Its worth a go anyway. Maybe freeze the cheese or chill it really well first so you don't get too much breakage. Messy and time consuming but hey.

saw an episode of Ham on the Street (FN) he basically used a long narrow hole saw to remove a long plug of hotdog cut a strip of sharp cheddar, stuffed it inside, plugged the hole back up. looked like a lot of work when you can put shredded on top.

You can just stuff it as part of the sausage. I've used parm in an Italian wine sausage. But once the sausage is stuffed, you're not getting cheese in there in any practical manner.

You'd be better off slitting the sausage, laying in some cheese and tying it closed like a roast. It will still leak but it's doable.
