Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) to ensure it's nice and hot for baking.
Take a cutting board and place one Greenridge Farm Black Forest Pork Sausage on it. Use a sharp knife to carefully cut the sausage lengthwise, creating two long halves.
Now, cut each halved sausage in half again, resulting in four shorter pieces. You should have a total of 16 sausage slices from the 4 sausages.
Open the cans of pre-cut crescent rolls and unroll them. Separate the dough into individual triangles.
Take one triangle of crescent roll dough and place a sausage slice at the wider end. Gently roll the dough over the sausage, tucking in the edges as you go, until the entire sausage slice is wrapped inside the dough. Repeat this step for the remaining sausage slices.
Arrange the wrapped sausages on a baking sheet, leaving some space between each one to allow for even baking.
Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 12 to 15 minutes, or until the crescent rolls turn a beautiful golden brown.
Once the pigs in a blanket are baked to perfection, remove them from the oven and let them cool for about 5 minutes. This helps them firm up slightly and prevents any accidental burns.
Now, it's time to add a touch of flavor. Take the vanilla frosting or butter and spread it over each sausage slice. You can use a butter knife or a small spatula for this step, ensuring that each piece is nicely coated.
For those seeking an extra layer of deliciousness, you have the option to dip your pigs in a blanket in maple syrup or drizzle some syrup over the top. This step is entirely optional but adds a delightful sweetness to the savory treat.
Finally, it's time to savor the fruits of your labor. Grab a plate, serve yourself, and enjoy these delightful Pigs in a Blanket while they're still warm.
