  • 1 loaf soft white bread
  • 16 links maple breakfast sausages cooked, 1 package
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter divided
  • maple syrup for serving, optional
  • powdered sugar for serving, optional


  • Remove sixteen middle slices of white bread from the loaf. Cut crusts off and discard {or use as breadcrumbs for later!} Wrap one breakfast sausage up in one piece of bread, pressing the bottom edge of the bread on the board to seal tightly around the sausage. Repeat with remaining sausages.
  • In a shallow dish, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon together to combine. Preheat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt in 1 tablespoon butter in the bottom of the pan. Dip eight bread wrapped breakfast sausages into the egg mixture and place it into the hot butter. Cook and rotate the pigs to create golden blankets on every side.
  • Remove from pan and repeat with remaining. Serve warm with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
