Bratfast in Bed with Johnsonville

unnamed (28)This is a fun sponsored post with Johnsonville- perfect in time for Father’s Day.

Mom’s aren’t the only ones who appreciate breakfast in bed! We teamed up with Johnsonville again- this time for a fun Bratfast in Bed recipe using Johnsonville brats as a Father’s Day surprise. While I am not a fan of bloody marys, the hubby is- so the recipe Johnsonville shared with us was perfect. If you’re a fan of them as well, then you’ve probably seen the fun trend of serving all kinds of food to go along with the cocktail on a skewer. This Wisconsin Brat-y Mary recipe calls for a brat on a bun, with a cube of cheddar cheese and pickle.

Check it out:

If your husband isn’t a Bloody Mary fan, you can easily think of some other fun ideas to go along with Johnsonville brats as breakfast or brunch in bed. Our little ones were fast asleep since daddy wakes up so early for work, but if you’re able to include them in on the recipe- it’s way more fun!
