  • 3 Eggs, large

  2. Crack the eggs into a small bowl, add the heavy cream (or milk) and whisk together until combined. Scramble and cook over medium-high heat and set aside.
  3. Open the cinnamon rolls and set icing aside. Place each roll on a large surface or cutting board and use a rolling pin to flatten and stretch each cinnamon roll, then cut each one in half.
  4. Evenly distribute the scrambled eggs amongst the cinnamon roll dough pieces then place one sausage link on top of each egg.
  5. Roll the sausage and scrambled eggs up in each cinnamon roll piece then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet with the tail tucked under.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the cinnamon rolls are cooked and golden brown. Take out of the oven and let cool for a few minutes.
  7. Drizzle the icing over the top of each of the pigs in a blanket and serve with syrup.
