{Breakfast} in a Blanket

My in-laws have this long standing tradition.  Every year on Ground Hog's day they eat sausage.  Get it?!  Don't worry, I didn't get it for years.  We kept faithfully eating sausage every February 2nd in honor of the tradition but I had no idea why.  Then one year it clicked.  What is sausage made of?  Ground hog.  Not groundhog, but ground hog.  Get it yet?  Like I said, it took me a while.  Anyway, at the end of January, I start looking for new and creative ways to serve our traditional Groundhog's day food.  I came across this new idea and gave it a try this year.  The kids were excited about this twist on the classic "Pigs in a Blanket" that they all love.  They were a hit.  I wasn't so sure if they'd be better dry or with syrup.  They kids all voted that it was definitely best with syrup and quickly ate every last one.  I don't think we'll be waiting until the next Grounghog's Day to be having this again!

16 fully cooked sausage links (I used frozen)
2 cans crescent rolls
1 cup maple syrup

Preheat oven to 375.  Separate dough into triangles.  Get one dough triangle and place one sausage link on the wide end.  Roll up sausage in the dough.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet, seam side down.  Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Drizzle syrup over top.

I love a good corny joke! What a fun tradition, and I think these would be a hit no matter what the occasion is!
