    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    1 ½ c. plus 1/2 c. warm water, divided (110 to 115 degrees)
    1 tsp. Hy-Vee baking soda
    4 c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee salted butter

    Things To Grab

    • 15x10-inch rimmed baking pan
    • Parchment paper
    • Small saucepan
    • Large bowl
    • Wooden spoon
    • Silicone pastry brush
    • Meat thermometer


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 15x10-inch rimmed baking pan with parchment paper. Spray with nonstick spray.

    2. Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1-1/2 cups warm water in a small bowl; set aside. Bring remaining 1/2 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in baking soda until dissolved; cool.

    3. Stir together flour, melted butter, and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl until combined. Add yeast mixture; stir with a wooden spoon until dough begins to form a ball. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knewad 4 to 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

    4. Divide dough into 24 equal pieces. Roll each into a ball and then press out into a 2-to-3-inch circle. Cut each bratwurst into 4 equal pieces. Wrap each with a piece of the dough; pinch edges together to enclose. Place in prepared baking pan, seam sides down with edges touching.

    5. Brush tops of dough bundles with cooled baking soda mixture; brush with beaten egg yolk and sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon salt.

    6. Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Cool 5 minutes before serving. Serve with honey mustard, if desired.
