I'm back! This time with one of my favorite sweet and savory snacks: Bourbon Maple Sausage Bites. These bites are a perfect holiday breakfast, snack or treat! This recipe started somewhere and ended up somewhere completely different and I am not mad about it. That is what I love most about creating recipes; thinking you are creating one thing and ending up with something else.
These bites are savory and sweet with a hint of sassy (that’s the bourbon). They call for a few more steps than normal, but they are more than worth it and will definitely be a crowd-pleaser at your upcoming family get-together!
As always, let your girl know if you decide to test this one out!
Bourbon Maple Sausage Bites
Nonstick cooking spray
1 package (12 ounces) maple sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2-1 tablespoon bourbon (optional)
2 tubes (8 ounces each) crescent rolls
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat oven to 375 F and spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
- In skillet, cook and stir sausage pieces until warmed and lightly brown, about 4 minutes.
- In bowl, mix maple syrup and bourbon, if desired.
- Unroll both tubes of dough; generously brush both sides of dough with maple syrup-bourbon mixture.
- Pull apart dough into pieces using perforated lines.
- Taking one piece at a time, squish dough into bottom of each muffin tin and sprinkle with brown sugar and chopped pecans. Top with sausage.
- Drizzle remaining maple syrup mixture evenly over muffin tins.
- Cook 15-16 minutes, or until crescent rolls are golden brown.
- Remove bites from muffin tins and let cool on plate to prevent syrup from hardening.
Note: Maple sausage links can be substituted for regular sausage or bacon.
