Brat Banh Mi
good match!. These sandwiches have balanced combination of flavors: zesty from pickled veggies, light spiciness from hot sauce, freshness from cucumber and parsley, and tenderness from meat. — mizaika
- 6 JOHNSONVILLE® Bratwurst Grillers
- 1/2 cup Thinly Sliced Baby Carrots
- 1/2 cup Thinly Sliced Radishes
- 1/4 cup (or to taste) Thinly Sliced Fresh Jalapenos
- 1/2 teaspoon Grated Fresh Ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon (or to taste) Salt
- 1/2 cup Rice Vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Sugar
- 3 ounces Branuschweiger
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Mayonnaise
- 5 tablespoons Thai Style Sweet Red Chili Sauce
- 1 tablespoon Finely Minced Onion
- 2 each Crusty French Baguettes (8-12 oz., 22"-24" in length)
- 1 cup Thinly Sliced Persian or English Cucumbers
- 2 tablespoons Chopped Fresh Mint
- 1/2 cup Cilantro, Stems Removed
- In a small sauce pan mix together the carrots, radishes, jalapenos, ginger, rice vinegar, sugar and salt and bring up to a simmer.
- Remove from heat and allow them to steep.
- Mix together the Braunschweiger , mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of the sweet chili sauce and the onion.
- Grill the frozen Johnsonville bratwurst burgers according to directions.
- A few minutes before the burgers are done, slice the baguettes lengthwise, but not all the way through.
- Brush the bottom half on the cut side of the bread lightly with the remaining sweet chili sauce and place the opened baguettes, cut side down, over the grilling burgers until the bread is warmed and slightly toasted around the edges.
- Spread the Braunswieger mixture on the bottom half of the bread.
- Cut each patty in half and tuck them into the sandwich, rounded side out.
- Using a slotted spoon, top the burgers with the marinated vegetables and then top them with the cucumbers, mint and cilantro.
- Cut between the patty halves into individual sandwiches, allowing two per person because you just can’t eat only one!
- Tip: If you have a total aversion to any type of “pate”, then substitute mayonnaise for the Braunschweiger mixture. If you’re on the fence about it, by all means try it. It complements the bratwurst beautifully, enhancing the bratwurst's natural sense of umami.
