Yield: 12 pieces

 

Level: Easy

 

Ingredients

12 pork breakfast sausage links (about 14 ounces)

6 large eggs

3/4 cup milk

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

Pinch of kosher salt

12 slices potato bread or country white bread

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Confectioners’ sugar, for topping

Maple syrup, for dipping

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the sausages on the baking sheet and bake until lightly browned and cooked through, about10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside; reduce the oven temperature to 200 degrees F.

Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, milk, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Trim each slice of bread into a 2-by-4-inch rectangle, then flatten slightly with your fingertips. Starting at a short end, roll each piece of bread around a sausage, pressing firmly to seal. Transfer to the bowl with the egg mixture and soak 5 minutes.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When it begins to brown and foam, add 6 of the bread-wrapped sausages and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Wipe out the skillet, add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and repeat with the remaining 6 sausages. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve with maple syrup.
