Sweet Pigs in a Blanket

  • Prepare your favorite cinnamon roll dough recipe. Have individual cinnamon rolls prepared, separated, and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Bake sausage links on prepared baking sheet until they’re golden brown and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Turn halfway through cooking. When complete, remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Put a fresh piece of parchment paper on the baking sheet and discard the used paper.
  • Flatten each individual cinnamon roll into an oval approximately 4 inches long. Wrap it around a sausage link. Place on baking sheet, seam side down. Repeat with other sausages, spacing a half inch apart on the baking sheet.
  • Bake until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown, approximately 15 minutes. Remove from the baking sheet and allow to cool.
  • Mix powdered sugar and water together. Drizzle icing while the cinnamon buns are cooling.
  • Serve with maple syrup on the side, if desired, for dipping.

  • Melt the butter, and add oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add salt, black pepper, thyme, and onions. Sauté onions until soft, caramelized, and golden brown. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut ham into strips approximately 2 inches wide by 4 inches long. Remove rind from Brie (if in that form), and cut into squares about 1/2 inch. Place one square of brie on each strip of ham, as well as about 1/3 teaspoon of caramelized onions. Wrap tightly into a roll.
  • Open the tube of crescent roll dough. Separate at the perforations. Cut each triangle of dough into three, long, thin triangles. You will end up with 24 thin triangles. Place a ham roll at the small tip and roll the dough around the ham. Place onto the baking sheet seam-side down
  • Bake until the dough is golden brown and baked all the way through.
  • Serve warm with a side of your favorite mustard for dipping.
