  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    In 3-quart saucepan, heat enough water to cook bratwurst to boiling. Add bratwurst; boil 8 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Drain; set aside.
  • 3
    Unroll dough; separate into 4 rectangles and press seams to seal. Use knife to make 4 angled slices on short sides of each rectangle, leaving about 3 inches of uncut dough in center.
  • 4
    Spread 1 tablespoon mustard over uncut dough of each rectangle. Spread about 1/4 cup sauerkraut over mustard on each; top each with 1 cooked bratwurst. Bring dough strips up over bratwurst on each to form a braid. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush each with beaten egg; sprinkle with pepper.
  • 5
    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown. If desired, serve with extra mustard.
