Sheet Tray Hasselback Smoked Sausage

Sheet Tray Hasselback Smoked Sausage

Sheet Tray Hasselback Smoked Sausage is the kind of quickie, low-effort meal that’s really a “back pocket” recipe. If you’re not familiar with the term back pocket, it’s a recipe that’s easy enough to memorize that you can “pull off” at pretty much a moment’s notice, especially if it can be riffed on with what’s in the fridge and/or freezer or pantry.

Better than Classic Beer Brats

First of all, I gotta count on you guys for a little help. Whatever you do, please don’t tell any of my Wisconsin neighbors (Wisconsin is credited for the innovation of the Beer Brat…even Wikipedia says so) about this recipe. A Minnesotan messing around with their beloved Beer Brats and making outrageous claims could just be the final straw. None of us can take one more disaster or any more stress this year! I think I’m already on the edge! So now, with that settled, let me tell ya how to make what I think is better than classic Beer Brats.
