Breakfast Pigs in a Blanket

Breakfast Pigs in a Blanket on a white plate with syrup.

These breakfast pigs in a blanket are a quick and easy breakfast the whole family will love. The crescent wrapped breakfast sausages are baked to a golden brown and then dipped in maple syrup giving the perfect sweet and savory breakfast. I am a sucker for sweet and savory mixed together so this is my dream breakfast, next to chicken and waffles lol. Unlike Chicken and waffles this is quick and I am all about quick and easy breakfast .  Using these  precooked sausages has made this recipe so much easier . Obviously if you can’t find the precooked links by all means cook your own, but I sure hope everyone can find these. I tend to make little finger foods for breakfast on holiday mornings . I will make these along with my sausage balls and my boys are super happy.

These “pigs” look like such a fun and easy breakfast. I will be making them with gluten-free puff pastry – I’m confident that will give a similar breakfast treat.
