Brat Bites with Spicy Mustard Dipping Sauce are perfect to serve at home for the game, or portable for a tailgate at the stadium. Delicious brats wrapped in pastry, baked, sliced, and dipped in a creamy spicy mustard.
I have a treat for you today! I am hosting a Tailgate Party with a few friends, and we are sharing so many delicious recipes to get you ready for game day.
I am a Green Bay, Wisconsin lady, and there is nothing we love more than celebrating the Green Bay Packers! In Wisconsin, we have a few staple foods when it comes to sports, and one of those is the bratwurst.
We cook brats at home weekly in the summer and fall. They are also a staple in the winter as well because we grill year-round.
My Brat Bites with Spicy Mustard is a delicious addition to a home tailgate party or portable to bring to a tailgate before the game at the stadium.
These bites are super simple and sooooo good. The ingredients are simple: brats, seamless crescent roll dough, stone ground mustard, mayo, and a touch of hot sauce.
I cut a roll of steamless crescent dough in half and roll each of the brats before baking them in the oven.
These brats are not pre-cooked, and I rely on a thermometer to make sure that my meat is cooked to a safe temperature. Over cooked dry meat and under cooked raw sausage is no good, and using a thermometer assures perfectly cooked meats.
My favorite thermometer in the world, and also our generous event sponsor, is the ThermoPop from ThermoWorks. Oh my goodness you guys this product is amazing! I have been using it for years, and just love it.[easy-image-collage id=9368]
So what makes the ThermoPop so great? Well it comes in a rainbow of different colors- I have a yellow and a red- so you can always pick your favorite. The ThermoPop was rated #1 by America's Test Kitchen and Cooks Illustrated. It is a pocket thermometer (aka not big and bulky) and is back-lit with a rotating display to give the user convenience for different angels. It also give you a read on your meat in 3-4 seconds. What is not to love!
Since ThemoWorks is so generous, in addition to giving the creators for #TailgateParty a ThermoPop, we are giving away a ThermoPop to a lucky reader! I know that you will love this product- and you get to pick your favorite color!

What do you need to make Brat Bites with Spicy Mustard Dipping Sauce?
Frequently Asked Questions
I can't find seamless crescent roll dough. Can I use the cut?
Yes, but be sure to pinch the seams to seal it.
Can I use a flavored brat?
Of course! I love cheese or chili cheese flavor!
I don't have stone ground mustard can I use Dijon or yellow?
Absolutely. You can sub at a 1:1 ratio.
Can I pre-cook the brat before wrapping it in the pastry?
You can, but you might have over-cooked sausage. The dough still needs to full cook even if the brat is cooked to temperature.
What temperature do the brats need to reach?
I recommend between 160° - 165°F

Wow! This takes pigs in a blanket to an entirely new level of yum. Thanks for sharing this recipe and for hosting the event. I have so many new recipes I want to try now.
This is my kind of game day recipe. These brats are delicious and that spicy mustard dip pairs perfectly!
Love the idea of using brats for these pigs in a blanket. Stone ground mustard is the perfect choice of condiment.
The perfect tailgate food. Something you can pop into your mouth and get a big burst of flavor.

These sound super yummy. My family are long time Green Bay fans as well!
These sound a lot like sausage rolls and I'm wondering how brats would be in puff pastry, which I prefer to crescents. I know the oven temp is 400-425 degrees in recipes I've seen and made. With the sausage rolls you cut them before baking so I'm not real sure of the timing. It's usually 20 to 25 minutes for the sausage but I would think cutting them first would impact the timing, which would overcook the brats before the pastry was done. Or maybe I should just follow your recipe, which really does look marvelous. LOL
This is such a great snack idea! Sausage & bread is one of my guilty pleasures and if I can dip them - all the better 😉
Talk about the perfect game-day snack! I always love brats for tailgating, so I can't wait to share these with everyone. They'll definitely be a hit.
I could eat all of these! What a delicious sounding recipe
We tailgate a LOT in the SEC, so I am always looking for a new recipe. This one looks like it will fit perfectly!
I literally just added those items to my grocery list, JUST FOR THIS.
It's going to be epic. I JUST KNOW IT!!

Brats are one of my favorite tailgating food! I am excited to try this very soon!
Brat bites to fight for! I wish I had a never-ending source of these - they are just too good. And great timing on these as well - can't wait to make enough for the next game.
I really love to have bacon wrapped everything! lol
