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:

  • Healthy
  • Comfort-food worthy
  • Easy
  • Delicious
  • Fun
  • 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!

A sheet pan sits on a white and grey kitchen towel. There are eight beer brats in a blanket situated on the pan that has a sheet of parchment paper covering the bottom. These are ready to be placed in the oven and baked.

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.

Interested in more 30-minute meals? You’re in luck, because I’ve got a whole category devoted to easy vegan 30-minute meals!

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:

  • Beer
  • 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!

A single beer brats in a blanket is sitting on a white plate, next to roasted sweet potatoes. The vegan cheese is oozing from the top, and veggie bacon is visible as well. There are two other pieces in the background.

*Serve this recipe with Vegan Beer Cheese Soup so you can use the leftover beer in that recipe. Otherwise, you can toss the remaining beer...such a shame.

This photo looks down on a vegan pepperoni pizza, with lots of fresh basil sprinkled over the top. It is sitting on a pizza stone on a wood countertop. There is a pizza cutter partially seen at the bottom of the image.

You’ll get two pizzas for around $15 and made in around 30 minutes. Why does it take so long for Friday pizza night to roll around! 😛
