This is a recipe I found in one of my Pillsbury recipe books. If you like bratwurst and sauerkraut, you will love this sandwich, as my husband and I do. I make these every so often as it is a favorite in our house.

Thought it deserved to be shared with others who would enjoy it as well.

How to Make Bratwurst Braids

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll dough; cut into 4 rectangles; place on cookie sheet. Press each into 6x4-inch rectangle.
  3. Spread 1 teaspoon mustard over each rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges. Place 1/4 cup sauerkraut and 1 bratwurst lengthwise down center of each rectangle.
  4. On long side 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 seeds.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm with additional mustard, if desired.
