Game nights are the best kind of nights, whether that means you’re sitting around a table playing a board game or sitting on the couch (and jumping up every two seconds when something good or bad happens) while watching a football game. This past weekend, we did a little bit of both. Saturday was all about playing board games, while Sunday was all about football. Our team won against our rivals, go sports!

We came up with a quick meal that’s perfect for any kind of game night. It’s delicious and mess-free to enjoy, no utensils required. We call these Cheese Stuffed brats in a blanket.
If you happen to be an adorable three year old you’ll call these brats in a blankie and you’ll devour them like you’ve never eaten another meal in your life. Oh, I love kid friendly meals when they’re not boring chicken nuggets or pizza.
We enjoyed these on Saturday night right before the gaming started. Then we pretended to be witches and played The Village Crone, and later followed with a quick game of Exploding Kittens (no kittens were harmed in the playing of Exploding Kittens, lots of laughing happened though.)
To make these cheese stuffed brats in a blanket you’ll just need bratwurst (or brats, always go for Johnsonville brats for the best experience,) shredded cheese, and crescent rolls. All ingredients are available at Peapod.com for your convenience, just order your groceries and they’ll arrive at your door. Oh how I love living in the 21st century, less time running errands, means more time for games.
We also enjoyed loaded tater tots, which are not as mess-free to eat, but they’re so tasty that the mess is definitely worth taking a break from the game. Our tots were topped with cheese, sour cream, green onions, and bacon.
|Cheese stuffed brats in a blanket|| |
- Johnsonville brats
- 2 cans of crescent rolls
- ¼ cup of shredded cheese
- You’ll want to grill your brats until fully cooked. You could cook them inside, but we wanted an authentic brat experience.
- Cut the cooked brats in half so they’re half of their original width, then cut a slit horizontally in each brat, this is where you’ll stuff the cheese.
- Take a triangle of crescent dough and carefully roll around your cooked brat.
- Then bake at 375* for about 10-12 minutes or until browned and no longer doughy.
- Enjoy warm.
Use Peapod.com for all of your grocery shopping, from pantry staples to produce and even meat. They even offer a lot of organic options, which I think is pretty amazing.
