Prep: 15 minutes   Grill: 27 minutes   Serves: 4


  • 2 ears sweet corn, husk, and silk removed
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup grated Cotija or Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper hot sauce plus additional for garnish (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 uncooked bratwurst sausages
  • 4 hot dog buns


  1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over high heat. Place corn on hot grill rack; cover and cook 12 minutes or until charred, turning ¼ turn every 3 minutes. Transfer corn to cutting board to cool; reduce grill heat to medium-low. Once corn is cool, cut corn kernels from cobs.
  2. In large bowl, stir red onion, cheese, cilantro, sour cream, lime juice, mayonnaise, hot sauce, garlic powder and chili powder; fold in corn. Makes about 1⅓ cups.
  3. Place brats on hot grill rack; cover and cook 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160°, turning frequently. About 3 minutes before brats are done, place buns, cut side down, on hot grill rack; cover and cook 3 minutes or until grill marks appear.
  4. Serve brats in buns topped with corn mixture and hot sauce, if desired.
