Weekday mornings at my house are madness. Getting the little people dressed and fed, diapers changed, lunches made, oldest to the bus stop etc. etc. is not my favorite thing in the world.

Those little people of mine certainly like to forget how to put pants on. *sigh*

I was reading a blog post the other day on a fancier breakfast item {read: waffles} and the author stated that she always likes to make a big breakfast for her family, like waffles, every morning. Sounds wonderful, but that would never and could never happen at my house. We are a cold-cereal-minute-oatmeal-and-maybe-cream-of-wheat-if-I’m-feeling-fancy kind of family. I suppose I went through a pancake phase, but that was  1 1/2 years and one less kid ago. Times have changed!

Weekday mornings are not my forte. If they are your forte, then congratulations aaaaand we can’t be friends.

But weekend mornings….watch the magic happen.

The waffles are steaming! The eggs are scrambling! The green juice is flowing! And this girl got the idea for a brilliant beyond brilliant breakfast idea: Pigs in a French Toast Blanket.

I love Pigs in regular blankets, but french toast blankets are even better 🙂

Just like you would assume, I wrap each “pig” {breakfast sausage} up in some crustless white bread, dip it in a french toast egg and milk mixture and fry them up in lots of butter. SO GOOD.

It’s a fun and easy breakfast that is delicious any day of the week, but perfect for the weekend.

Pigs in a French Toast Blanket

These pigs in a french toast blanket are the best of both worlds: a simple, savory-sweet breakfast that is perfect any day of the week.

Yield: 16 pieces

Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf soft, white bread
  • 1 package maple breakfast sausages, cooked {16 links}
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • maple syrup & powdered sugar for serving {optional}

Directions:

  1. Remove sixteen middle slices of white bread from loaf. Cut crusts off and discard {or use as breadcrumbs for later!} Wrap one breakfast sausage up in one piece of bread, pressing the bottom edge of the bread on the board to seal tightly around sausage. Repeat with remaining sausages.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon together to combine. Preheat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt in 1 tablespoon butter in the bottom of the pan. Dip eight bread wrapped breakfast sausages into the egg mixture and place into the hot butter. Cook and rotate the pigs to create golden blankets on every side. Remove from pan and repeat with remaining. Serve warm with powdered sugar and maple syrup.

  2. What a great idea! This would’ve been perfect for Groundhog Day (ground hog–tradition in our family to eat sausage every Feb. 2nd!). Also perfect for weekends when I’m more inclined to make not-cold-cereal. 😉

  3. I’m wondering if this might work using crescent rolls in the tube and baking them as in the label? What do you think?
