Ingredients:

  • 3 High Plains Bison Beer and Cheddar Bratwurst, sliced ¼” thick
  • 1 (16oz.) package dried pasta shells

  • 4oz. extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Cooking Instructions:

2. Cook pasta in reserved water over high heat stirring often. Cook pasta until tender about 5-7 minutes. Stir in sliced mushrooms at the last minute and then drain immediately but do not rinse.



For Cheese Sauce:

1. In a heavy 4 quart saucepan add butter and onion and sauté over medium high heat until onion begins to caramelize, stirring constantly about 3-5 minutes.

2. Reduce heat to low and sprinkle flour and dry mustard over onions. Cook for another 3 minutes.

3. Add milk and beer all at once, whisking quickly to prevent clumps. Simmer, whisking occasionally about 5 minutes.

4. Add cheese all at once and stir constantly until cheese is melted about 3-4 minutes. (do not boil).

5. Season to taste with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce.

Add cheese sauce to bratwurst mixture and enjoy.

Chef’s Tip: Add 1 teaspoon of horseradish to cheese sauce to spark up the flavor and give the dish a little kick.
