Breakfast Sausage Puffs

Pigs in a blanket for breakfast? Why haven’t we thought of that before?!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 18 cooked breakfast sausages, about 1 pound
  • 1 egg

Instructions:

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with rack in center position.
  2. 2. Roll out puff pastry to 12-inch square. Brush maple syrup over entire surface.
  3. 3. Cut dough into thirds in each direction and then cut each square in half diagonally, ending with 18 triangles. Place a breakfast sausage link on the lower third of each triangle and roll up, making sure to place each tip-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. 4. Whisk egg and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl until lightly beaten. Brush each puff with egg wash and bake for 16 to 18 minutes until golden brown.
