Recipe courtesy of Food Network

12 breakfast sausage links

6 large eggs

¾ cup milk

¼ cup sugar

¼ tsp cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

pinch of salt

12 slices potato bread or country white bread

4 tbsp butter

powdered sugar for topping

syrup for dipping


COOK TIME: About 20 minutes

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment

paper. Put the sausages on the baking sheet and bake until lightly

browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from

the oven with oven mitts and let cool slightly.

2. Meanwhile, combine the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in

a large bowl and whisk to combine. Cut each slice of bread into a 2×4

inch rectangle, cutting off the crusts, then press the bread gently with your

fingertips to flatten slightly.

3. Starting at a short end, roll each piece of bread around a sausage link,

pressing firmly with your fingers to seal the seam. Add the bread-wrapped

sausages to the bowl with the egg mixture and let soak for 5 minutes.

4. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat over

medium heat. Remove 6 of the bread-wrapped sausages from the egg

mixture, letting the excess egg drip back into the bowl, then add to the

skillet. Cook, turning occasionally with a spatula, until golden brown,

about 5 minutes.

5. Carefully remove the pigs in a blanket to paper towels using the spatula.

Bunch up a paper towel and hold it with tongs to wipe out the skillet. Add

the remaining 2 tbsp butter to the skillet and repeat with the other 6

bread-wrapped sausages.

6. Sprinkle the powdered sugar over the wrapped pigs in a blanket. Serve

with maple syrup for dipping
