Today I am sharing my recipe for grilling up Pepper Jack Stuffed Porkies, which is a great summertime recipe for outdoor grilling or even the Airfryer!


Hey Y’all today I am sharing the perfect summertime grilling recipe my Pepper Jack Stuffed Porkies! This is a great recipe for Memorial Day weekend, the 4th of July or any other time you might have a little backyard grill gathering. It is also great for tailgating in the fall while cheering for your favorite team and can even be made easily in an AirFryer as well.

Prepping Pepper Jack Stuffed Porkies JENRON DESIGNSTo get this party started you will want to use a good quality of beer brat. Slice your bratwurst in half lengthwise and stuff it with a pepper jack cheese stick for easy prep. This will totally save time; you can use sliced pieces of your favorite cheese off of a block as well to fill this space. Premade Pepper Jack Stuffed Porkies JENRON DESIGNSNext, you are going to wrap the entire bratwurst with cheese inside, in a slice of good quality bacon, I personally like applewood smoked bacon because pigs and apples just go together, right? Secure the ends of your brat with a water-soaked toothpick, if needed, before grilling or placing into the AirFryer. Here, I was able to make sure the ends of the bacon were tucked under prior to cooking, so no toothpicks were used. AirFryer Pepper Jack Stuffed Porkies JENRON DESIGNSBake in an AirFryer for 15-18 minutes at 350 degrees. Keep a close eye on them, you may need to rotate them with tongs, to prevent them from burning on the ends around the edges. If you are are grilling you will also want your grill around the 350 degree mark for around 10-15 minutes with the lid down, turning half way through the cooking time.  Cooked Pepper Jack Stuffed Porkies JENRON DESIGNSOnce they are done dress however you like, if you are avoiding carbs, and going KETO, they are great without buns. If you like a more traditional version add your favorite buns, condiments like buttered onions, which are Ron’s fav! The Pepper Jack Stuffed Porkies JENRON DESIGNSValidia Buttered Onions:

You will want to thinly slice 3 medium Vidalia onions. Lightly sauté onions in your skillet or Instant Pot for 5 minutes with 4 tbsp of butter to lightly caramelize. Then you will add in one 12 oz beer of your choice (we use a dark AmberBock). Seal the pot and cook for 5 minutes or set Instant Pot to High-Pressure manual cook for 5 minutes. If using an Instant Pot allow to naturally vent when finished, which is approximately 10 minutes.
