Starting out each morning trying to figure out what to feed kids for breakfast is frustrating some days. Don’t get me wrong, my kids will eat cereal, cinnamon rolls or packaged muffins and be perfectly happy, but I like to cook them breakfast at least 3 days a week. There is just something about a hot breakfast that starts your day off right. There is one easy recipe that they love so I thought I would share it.
Pigs n’ Blanket
- Texas Style Butter Biscuits (Food Club or Brookshire’s) – 10 ct
- Eckrich Smok-y Breakfast Sausage Links – 10 ct
- Original or w/cheese – Fully-Cooked
Place the pre-cooked sausage on a plate and microwave for 2 minutes. Take a biscuit, place a sausage in the center and then pull the dough from both sides and pinch them together. Place them on a cookie sheet and cook at 400 degrees for approximately 9 minutes (less time than the given directions). You thin out the dough when you stretch it, so it does take as long to cook. Brown the biscuits to your liking and remove from stove.
Serve plain, with jelly, syrup or preserves. I serve these by themselves or add them to a plate of eggs and hash browns as a finishing touch. They are soft, buttery and delicious! Also, if your kids are running late you can throw them in a sandwich bag and send them off to school, with no mess.
Try this recipe and see how easy it is and how much your kids with love them. Make “rise n’ shine” at your house a breakfast time they will look forward to. That little personal touch of home cooked food is just another way to show you care. Count your blessings daily and give thanks for the time you share with your family!
