Pigs in a Blanket with a Twist

By: Amanda Magnus

Do you ever experiment with food? Well I don’t very often but from time to time I’ll have a good idea. This time though it was my husband, Brian, that had the idea for the recipe I’m about to tell you about.

We enjoy doing brunch with my parents on the weekend. It doesn’t happen every weekend but we try to make it happen as often as we can. Brunch usually includes pancakes or waffles, scrambled eggs, hashbrown patties, and sausage links. This type of breakfast isn’t something we have time for every morning. So some mornings Brian and I will do some cinnamon rolls. And this is what got Brian thinking.

We had some sausage links and a package of cinnamon rolls. So, Brian thought why not wrap the sausage links in the cinnamon rolls?! I’ll be honest I wasn’t so sure how this would turn out although it didn’t sound like a bad idea.

What you’ll need:

8 sausage links

1 pkg of 8 cinnamon rolls

Start by preheating your oven to the temp it says on the cinnamon roll package. Then you’ll want to cook your sausage links. We really like using our air fryer for this. It works great to get them done perfectly and it’s quick and we don’t have splattered grease everywhere! Just cook them until they are golden brown. Once they are done let them cool in the fridge for a bit so they aren’t so hot. This is the air fryer we use.

Once the sausage links are cooled a bit you can start to flatten out your cinnamon rolls. Brian took a soup can to roll them out flat. Next lay your sausage link on the flat cinnamon roll and begin to roll it up. You’ll have to roll from top to bottom kind of in a spiral pattern to cover the entire sausage. You could roll it up so that the ends are sticking out too. Whichever you prefer will work fine!

Finally just put them on a cookie sheet and bake them for about 10 minutes or until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown. We finished them off with the icing but you could skip the icing too if you want it less sweet.
