Sometimes I pick my favorite brunch foods and make them at home. That way I don’t have to pick out a dress or get a last minute gift off the registry and I still enjoy the delightful finger foods. Everyone wins!
My favorite simple breakfast dish that’s easy to share (or not share) is pigs in a blanket. It seems to easy to share the recipe but sometimes it helps to see just how easy something is in words. Also I need to be honest with you: I used generic brand crescent rolls…not Pillsbury. And it was awful. It was so horrible that if I had posted pictures, this post would not be safe for work. The dough was sticky and greasy and would barely unroll. It straight up stuck to the pan and had CHUNKS of fat in it (shortening I’m pretty sure). So Pillsbury – if you’re reading this, I’m so so sorry – my grocery store only had 1 can of your crescent-y goodness and I needed 2. So I went subpar and it bit me in the butt. Forgive me??
Here’s the half-recipe if you aren’t taking it to your colleges roommate’s bridal shower – just double it if you feel kind enough to share (you’ll only need to double the rolls, the sausage is enough for 2 batches)
1 can PILLSBURY Crescent Rolls (no other brand. TRUST me)
1 container of Hillshire Farms Little Smokies (You’ll only use half the pack)
- Unroll the crescent rolls and cut each triangle in half (I like lots of bready goodness, you could cut each triangle into thirds if you like more sausage)
- Roll a smoky in each strip and spread evenly on a nonstick pan
- Bake at 350 for 15ish minutes until golden brown (the sausages are fully cooked, you’re just heating them through).
- Plate and enjoy warm!
