Save this recipe: Giant Pig-in-a-Blanket Recipe courtesy of Food Network Kitchen Total: 1 hr Active: 15 min Yield: 6 to 8 servings Level: Easy Ingredients One 16-ounce log pork breakfast sausage, such as Jimmy Dean, chilled 4 slices deli ham (about 2 1/2 ounces) One 8-ounce tube refrigerated crescent dough, such as Pillsbury 1 large egg, beaten with a splash of water 1 teaspoon poppy seeds Honey mustard, for serving Directions Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Remove the plastic packaging from the sausage while keeping it together in its original shape. On a work surface, gently roll the sausage log back and forth into a 10-inch log. Transfer the log to the prepared baking sheet and bake until browned and cooked to 155 degrees F, about 25 minutes; transfer the sausage to paper towels to drain. Discard the parchment and reline the baking sheet with a new piece. Arrange the ham slices side by side and overlapping by 1 inch on a cutting board to form a 9-inch-long rectangle. Place the sausage log parallel to one long end of the rectangle and roll the sausage up in the ham. Place the crescent dough sheet on a cutting board and pinch the perforated seams closed so the dough is solid. Arrange the ham-wrapped sausage parallel with one short end of the dough sheet and roll it so that the dough wraps around the sausage completely. Transfer the pastry-wrapped sausage to the prepared baking sheet seam-side down, brush with the egg mixture and sprinkle with the poppy seeds. Bake until the pastry is golden brown and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and slice. Serve with honey mustard for dipping. Copyright 2017 Television Food Network, G.P.
