pig in a blanket: sausage wrap with wasabi mayo, tomatoes, scallions and arugula

For NaBloPoMo Day 3, here is a great breakfast or brunch idea! This variation on pig in a blanket was inspired by the Food Network show Sandwich King. Instead of wrapping the sausage in a roll, wrap it in a crepe.


This is the Thai version of a bratwurst–but never mind its lack of authenticity. It still tastes pretty good! Any sausage will do. I spread some wasabi mayo on the crepe, sprinkled some sliced scallions and tomatoes, and added some arugula (rocket). Delicious.

Here’s a basic crepe recipe:
Makes about 6 pancakes

1 cup flour (I used tempura flour–it was all I had on hand)
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cooking oil

Cooking spray

Beat the eggs. Add the flour, milk, water, salt and cooking oil . Heat a 10 inch skillet. Spray with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of batter in the skillet and swirl it around. The edges will start to come away from the pan. When the bottom is browned, flip and brown the other side.


6 sausages, grilled
chopped tomatoes
chopped scallions
wasabi mayo

Spread a crepe in a plate. Smear with wasabi mayo. Put a grilled sausage in the middle. Sprinkle tomatoes, scallions, and top with arugula. Roll up and eat.

Suggested toppings:
Caramelized onions
Chopped avocado
