Cinnamon Roll Pigs in a Blanket have juicy breakfast sausage wrapped in easy cinnamon roll dough and finished with a sweet drizzle of maple icing. Just three ingredients are all you need for fun and tasty breakfast pigs in a blanket.
1(12.4 oz)container Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Original Icing8 rolls per package
Heat oven to 400°F.
In a large skillet over medium-low heat, brown the sausage until just cooked through. Transfer links to a plate lined with paper towels to drain fat.
Open the tube of cinnamon roll dough. Set the container of icing aside. Separate the rolls, then cut each roll in half.
Take a half roll and pinch the cut ends together to form a "mini roll" resembling the original whole roll. In your palms, flatten to an oblong disk. Lay a sausage on the disk. Wrap dough around the link; pinch dough closed to hold. Place seam side down on bake sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining dough and links.
Bake at 400°F for 9-11 minutes until dough is puffed, golden, and cooked through.
While pigs are cooking, stir the maple syrup and package icing in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over cooked pigs in a blanket and serve immediately.
I used Johnsonville brand Brown Sugar and Honey flavor breakfast sausage. Maple flavor is another option commonly available.Note that the halved pieces of dough will cook faster (9-11 minutes) than the 13-17 minutes called for in the Pillsbury package directions. Keep an eye on them to ensure they don't burn.
