  1. Cut a lengthwise slit in each bratwurst about a half-inch deep. Cut cheese into five narrow strips and insert into slits. Wrap a slice of bacon around each, fastening at each end with wooden picks.
  2. On a preheated grill, place brats cheese-side up, cover and grill for 5 to 10 minutes until bacon is crisp and cheese is melted.
  3. Cut onions and green peppers in long slices, place on the grill and dab with olive oil; cook 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Serve brats in French rolls with cooked onions and peppers on top.
