This week on Gigi day my grandson and I made a recipe for breakfast pigs in a blanket!
We like to make my daughter/ his mommy a meal after she’s been working all day and he calls our special day together “Gigi Day”.
And who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner!?
Plus only 4 simple ingredients are involved!
How to make breakfast pigs in a blanket
You could buy already cooked sausage links or cook your sausage links in the air fryer like I did, or in a skillet.
While the sausage links cooled I made some scrambled eggs and then assembled a pigs in the blanket assembly station.
Luckily my son was able to cook with us on this evening and he was a great help to my grandson as they rolled out the cinnamon rolls.
Once the sausage and scrambled eggs were cooled, the boys made their pigs in a blanket.
Start with a bit of scrambled eggs, then a sausage link, and a sprinkle of shredded cheese.
Secure with a toothpick and continue making the rest of the pigs in a blanket.
My grandson was pretty excited as he made the first one for his mommy.
As the boys made each one I put it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Then into a 375 degree oven for 14 to 16 minutes.
Let them cool before icing so the icing does not melt right off of them.
Drizzle the icing packet from the cinnamon rolls over top of breakfast pigs in a blanket before serving 🙂
It was a bit of a sticky dinner but that’s OK… we will say it was finger licking good!

Breakfast Pigs in a Blanket
Breakfast Pigs in a Blanket is a fun recipe and can also be served as breakfast for dinner, cinnamon rolls with eggs, sausage, and cheese!
- 3 eggs beaten
- kosher salt, pepper
- 1/2 Tbsp butter
- 1 tube cinnamon rolls (I used the 8 pack Pillsbury rolls)
- 8 breakfast sausage links cooked
- 3/4 cup shredded cheese of choice
Crack the eggs in a bowl and season with kosher salt and pepper, beat them with a fork. Set a skillet over medium low heat and once warm add the butter and eggs. Cook them 4 to 5 minutes moving and scrambling them with a spatula. Set them aside once cooked.
Remove the cinnamon roll dough from the package and use a rolling pin to flatten each one.
To each flattened cinnamon roll dough add some of the scrambled eggs, a cooked breakfast sausage link, and some cheese to the center.
Fold both ends of the cinnamon roll dough over the filling and secure with a toothpick. Place them on a lined baking sheet.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 14 to 16 minutes. Let them cool for several minutes and then drizzle the icing packet that came with the cinnamon rolls over top and serve.
Note: If your cinnamon rolls came with the cup of icing, remove metal lid, microwave a few seconds, and then it will be more drizzle-able.
