I wanted something different for breakfast this morning. I wanted pancakes but not in a pancake form. I also wanted some sausage but not in a patty or link. I found this recipe for muffins using pancake mix and cooked sausage. I was surprised how good they turned out! I am thinking about freezing some of them to have at a later time.
- 1 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 3 tsp. baking powder
- 1 Tblsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 beaten egg
- 1 cup milk
- 2 Tblsp. salad oil
Sausage Pancake Bite
Mix pancake mix as directed and add cooked sausage crumbles. Spray mini muffin tin with Pam and full with pancake batter. Sprinkle the extra sausage on top and bake at 350 for 13 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with butter and syrup. Enjoy these delicious bites!
The first thing I did was get my sausage on to cook. I used Jimmy Dean Maple flavored sausage. Use your favorite.
I broke mine up into crumbles while it was cooking. You want it to turn slightly brown. Set aside when it is done.
I started making my pancake batter while my sausage was cooking. You can make a pancake mix but it is really simple to make them from scratch. Sift your flour, baking powder, sugar, & salt into a medium bowl.
After your flour and other dry ingredients have been sifted make a well in the middle. That is where the liquids will go.
Next you want to mix up your beaten egg, milk and oil in a small bowl.
You want to mix this up well. You should see bubbles like the picture above.
Next you want to pour your liquids into your flour mixture.
It should be smooth with a few lumps left. It will have bubble in it. That is the reaction the baking powder is having with the liquids.
You are now ready to add the sausage crumbles to the pancake batter. Stir just till combined.
It should look like this when you are finished incorporating the sausage into the pancake batter.
Put them in muffin tins. I put mine in cupcake/muffin liners. You can just grease the pan if you don’t want to use the liners. I did not make mini ones this time. I went ahead and made regular size muffins. I baked mine for about 18 minutes. It made 12 muffins.
Look how good these look when they come out of the oven. I put a pat of butter in each muffin after they came out of the oven.
I served my muffin with maple syrup. You could use any syrup you like, or no syrup at all. I think next time I might try them with bacon in them. Just a thought…… I really did enjoy these!!
