The holiday season calls for adding a bit of whimsy and creativity to your meals. During the season wine transforms into a warm spiced punch, bread has stone fruits added to the mix, and sausage is wrapped up in a warm blanket of scrumptiousness. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year for you and your stomach! So when Eckrich Smoked Sausage reached out to create a special holiday recipe using their delicious meats, I immediately let the magic flow… it’s time to bite into some Jalapeño Cheddar Pigs in a Crepe Blanket!

Since there is a lot to be juggled during the holiday season, I made sure this unique breakfast recipe would not be too complicated. The crepes and Eckrich Jalapeño& Cheddar Sausage can both be prepped individually and then the dish can be assembled later, which makes for a super easy meal and create less fuss in the kitchen. So without further ado, let’s get to the recipe…
