Brats in a Blanket


Brats were on sale, so we have a lot of brats. Typically, I make homemade buns and we grill the brats. Or I make various stews. It’s all good. But with this many brats, it was time to think outside the usual. I came up with these “brats in a blanket” as a fast dinner for the kids to grab late after sports practices last night. (SO MUCH better than pigs in a blanket. These are Italian sausages. YUM.) I used angel biscuit dough to wrap them, made with my Quick Mix.

I’ll do a post soon about how to make angel biscuits with Quick Mix (and how to make them without a mix, too)! I love angel biscuits, for certain occasions. (What are angel biscuits, you ask? An angel biscuit recipe is a biscuit recipe that has all the usual biscuit recipe ingredients….plus yeast. Will explain more in the post!)

Meanwhile, these brats in a blanket are a new favorite around here!

    Italian sausages? Are we talking about German bratwurst here?

    Then again, I’ve never seen brown bratwurst, so I don;t know what you’ve got there.

    I make them with hotdogs, using homemade bread dough to wrap them in. After baking them, I put the extras in the freezer. Then when the kids want one, they just nuke it for a minute or two.
