Summer is here, and a good bratwurst recipe is calling my name. But not just any brat will do. I created a bratwurst recipe using the Smithfield®’s Yuengling® Bratwurst, along with a few other ingredients to make Bratwurst Spring Rolls, plus a spicy mustard dipping sauce. Thanks to Smithfield for sponsoring this post. All creatives listed below, recipe, and opinions are 100% my own.
Yuengling Bratwurst Spring Rolls + Spicy Mustard Dipping Sauce
We all like brats, right? Summertime, beer, and brats go together like two, well, three peas in a pod. But then I got to thinking. How about we stuff the brats we love so much into a spring roll? Why not? So we did just that very thing. And so check out our Yuengling Bratwurst Spring Rolls! With our Spicy Mustard Dipping Sauce, it’s a pretty good combination. But have you noticed something about these brats? These aren’t just any run of the mill brats! Nope, not even close. These are Smithfield® Craft Collection™ Limited Batch Yuengling brats. I am drooling over here!
Did you know Yuengling is America’s oldest brewery, and located in Pennsylvania? And furter, did you know Smithfield® is in the ham capital of the world (located in Virginia). When you pair these two, not only are they grounded in tradition, but there is a unique flavor in every bite. And the Yuengling lager well, if you’re a beer fan you may already know about this highly coveted beer. It’s no wonder these two decided to pair up to make a bratwurst so good you’ll want to smack somebody (okay, maybe not, but you may come real close!). But you know what? You’ll smack your lips!
The good folks over at Smithfield joined forces with Yuengling Brewing to create something pretty unique
Our spring rolls go great with a Yuengling Lager. Both items can be found at your local Kroger (and banner stores like Gerbes, Owen’s, or Ruler).
When you start with good ingredients…
This is a great recipe to make for summer outdoor gatherings with friends and family. It makes for a super yum appetizer or a game night or girl’s night in. Can you imagine a good lager beer and these bratwursts at your next summer party? It’s an easy appetizer to put together and let the good times “spring” roll! Sorry, I couldn’t resist! I think you won’t be able to resist them either. And why would you anyway? Add the meat and some of your favorite vegetables, and you’re already half-way to a plateful of deliciousness! I highly suggest having a spring roll making party!
Would you just look at all of these wonderful colors!
Would you believe me if I you told that all of the seasoning and irresistible flavor comes from these Yuengling + Smithfield® brats?
It’s true! No salt, pepper or any other seasoning is needed. Smithfield’s Yuengling Lager Bratwurst impart so much savory flavor all you have to do is brown the brats and add the veggies. But don’t trust me, you’ll have to make them yourself to enjoy.
Just fold like little envelopes filled to bursting with so much YUMVILLE!
I stopped at 40 spring rolls, but my boys wanted me to make an even 100. Hungry?
Okay, maybe each one isn’t geometrically perfect, but they all taste of the exact yumlicious dimensions!
Just dip a spring roll into our Spicy Ginger Mustard Sauce, and you will know what a mouthful of joy tastes like!
Brats + Beer go hand in hand. Need I say more?
Knocking back an ice-cold Yuengling traditional lager and enjoying our Yuengling Bratwurst Spring Rolls is a great way to enjoy summertime. And if you want something incredibly good to dip those Spring Rolls in, try our Spicy Ginger Mustard. So good!
These Spring Rolls are crispy in the right places, with a bratwurst and savory vegetable filling. They’re delicious all over!
Dip it real good!
