I love a good, easy vegan recipe! Because my vegan diet is multifaceted. It cannot be boxed in! Let me explain. My vegan diet is:
- Comfort-food worthy
- Compassionate toward animals
- Better for the environment!
Now, it doesn’t mean it can be all those things at the same time. Sometimes my vegan dinner is delicious, but not overly healthy. Or, sometimes my vegan dessert is healthy, but not easy.
Do you get my point?
However, you slice it, my vegan diet is compassionate and better for the environment!
How to Make Vegan Beer Brats in a Blanket
This is one of my easy, ready-in-30-minutes-or-less meals. It’s perfect for a Thursday night (or any night) when you just don’t want to face hours in the kitchen.

So, let’s talk about how to make these vegan beer brats in a blanket. First, let’s go over the ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Vegan Brats (see below for where to find them)
- Vegan White Cheese (like Mozz or Provolone, etc)
- Veggie Bacon
- Vegan Crescent Rolls
- Sauerkraut (I used probiotic, fermented Dill & Garlic flavored)
First, pour beer into a saucepan. I used a bottle of Bud Light, but whatever you have should work. Then add 4 beer brats. The package comes with 4 so that works out quite nicely.
You can find vegan beer brats at health food stores, Sprouts, and maybe even in the produce section at Walmart and Target. I know I’ve seen Field Roast sausages there at times and it’s worth a trip to see. For sure you can find them at places like Whole Foods and Natural Grocers.
Bring those brats to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes or so. Then open a can of crescent rolls and separate them. Remove the brats with tongs and cut each of them in half. Then when they’re cool enough to handle, you can wrap each in a slice of veggie bacon, place them in one of the crescent roll triangles, top with sauerkraut and vegan cheese.
Then wrap the crescent roll around everything and place it on a pan. Make sure to roll the dough good and tight! Bake these for 20 – 25 minutes until brown and that’s it.
I love dipping these vegan brats in a blanket in a sweet mustard sauce. So good!
Adapt this Recipe
I give Adee the credit for creating this recipe. She did a great job and I knew it was a winner. However, I did make some changes, like adding the veggie bacon. How about you make some changes too? Here are some ideas to get you started:
- If you don’t have veggie bacon, you can leave that out
- I could see adding some green onions before baking
- I could also see adding slices of veggie pepperoni for added flavor
- Instead of a sweet mustard, you could create a sweet sriracha sauce
However you slice it, this is a delicious, comfort food recipe! I would definitely love a hibiscus margarita to go along with it. Yum!
