Sausage & Pancake Bites

These fun sausage and pancake bites are a big hit with kids!
The best of breakfast in one bite.

Sausage & Pancake Bites...breakfast in one bite! The great combo of pancakes and sausage in muffin form - dip them into maple syrup while warm. Kids loves this recipe!

We got dumped with 9 inches of snow overnight which meant no school for the kiddos, which meant a hot breakfast was in store. They wouldn't dare be bothered with cold cereal!

Fortunately, for them I already had this new recipe on the docket.

Let me just say, they were a BIG HIT. I literally walked away after setting the tray on the table to go and fold some laundry and five minutes later they were gone.

Completely gone. Minus the one they left for me.

Such nice kids.

Weekends are usually saved for the big breakfasts in our house, but honestly these could be whipped up any day where you have an extra 10 minutes!

They combine all of our weekend breakfast favorites - sausage and pancakes into one easy bite. They go together like the State Fair and sunshine and just make the most fun way to gobble down breakfast. A tender, slightly sweet pancake is studded with crispy bites of sausage into one delicious muffin.

Even one of my kids {I won't name names} who is hit or miss on sausage, didn't flinch a bit and ate two.

Look at that fluffiness!

I used my tried and true homemade pancake batter - the one I've whipped up by heart approximately 789 times since my first child was born. Yes, homemade pancake batter - it makes a difference!

Feel free to use any favorite sausage you have on hand. I happened to have a box of turkey sausages from Costco in my freezer, so I grabbed six and got to work. But any kind of sausage works!

After I took them out of the oven, I popped out a few to cool and then poured the maple syrup directly into the muffin tins {three for my three kids}. That way they could eat right at the table, out of the pan and just dip away!

Hey, it saved on dishes. No need for plates or silverware.

These sausage and pancake bites are also great to put on your meal prep agenda!

Make a double batch, let them cool and throw them in a big plastic storage bag and keep them in the freezer. Just a few seconds in the microwave on school mornings and they are ready to eat again. Pair it with a banana, some yogurt or a glass of milk and your kids are set.

You might find yourself eating a few too.
