  • 1 sheet of Frozen Puff Pastry
  • 4 Bratwursts
  • 1 tablespoon of Curry Ketchup
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tablespoon of Water
  • White and/or Black Sesame Seeds optional


  1. Thaw the puff pastry sheet in advance. Cut into 4 even squares and roll out per package directions to fit bratwursts.
  2. Fry the bratwursts in oil on medium high to get a nice, brown sear on the sides but don't worry about cooking all the way through. Set aside to cool.
  3. Brush curry ketchup on each puff pastry square and place a bratwurst in the middle. Fold over both sides on top of bratwurst and press together both ends. Gently transfer puff pastry pockets to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. A little cooking spray on the sheet helps the parchment paper stay put.
  4. Whisk together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water to create an egg wash. Brush onto puff pastry tops with a natural hair pastry brush. Sprinkle with white and/or black sesame seeds, if using.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 430 degrees for 20 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Try it with spicy or sweet German mustard instead of curry ketchup for a more traditional taste.
