Bratwurst Braids

Bratwurst Braids


1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

4 tsp. spicy brown mustard

1 can (8 oz) sauerkraut, well drained on paper towels (1 C.)

4 cooked smoked bratwurst (thawed if frozen)

1 egg, beaten

1/2 tsp. caraway seed


Heat oven to 375°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough and separate into 4 rectangles; place on cookie sheet. Press each into 6×4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal. Spread 1 tsp. mustard over each rectangle to within 1/2 inch of all edges. Place 1/4 C. sauerkraut and 1 bratwurst lengthwise down center of each rectangle. On long sides of each rectangle, make 5 cuts at an angle and 1 inch apart almost to edge of sauerkraut. For braided appearance, fold strips of dough at an angle across bratwurst with ends of strips slightly overlapping, alternating from side to side; press ends to seal. Brush tops with egg; sprinkle with caraway seed. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm with additional mustard, if desired.
