Serves 6

Bourbon Brat Skewers Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups whole mushrooms

Bourbon Brat Skewers Directions

  1. Combine the first five ingredients in a large, resealable plastic bag. Add the vegetables, seal the bag, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
