Breakfast Pigs in a Blanket
Breakfast Pigs in a Blanket are both sweet and savory and make an easy breakfast the whole family will enjoy. Only 4 ingredients needed!
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon water
- 1/2 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 2 tablespoons pancake syrup
- 1 (9.6-ounce) package fully cooked breakfast sausage links
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.Whisk together egg and water in a small bowl and set aside.
Roll the thawed pastry sheet out on a lightly floured surface. You want it to roughly be 14x10-1/2 inches. Cut it into 12 squares. Don't worry too much about the shape or size of the puff pastry pieces as long as they are big enough to wrap around the sausage.
Drizzle a little pancake syrup on each square and place a sausage so that it sits diagonally on each square.
Brush two opposite corners of puff pastry with egg wash on each square. Pull the corners up over the sausage and pinch them together to seal. Place on prepared baking sheet.
Brush tops with egg wash and bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden.
To make this dish spicy, sprinkle a little cayenne pepper on each piece of puff pastry before adding the sausage.
Be sure to thaw the puff pastry sufficiently before rolling it out or it will crack.
I like to roll the puff pastry out on a piece of parchment paper sprinkled with a little flour. Makes for easy clean-up.
