This is a great take on the Pigs in a Blanket that are often served as a party appetizer. Why not surprise your family with this breakfast version? My kids never cared for breakfast sausage links when they were young until I started making these (they always just wanted cold cereal or pancakes). Now my daughter is off to college, and my son is in high-school, and they both make these for breakfast. Very few ingredients and time are needed. I hope you enjoy these little breakfast bites. (Also great when served for a Sunday brunch).
- Prep Time 8 mins
- Total Time 28 mins
- Yield 15 pancakes
- 1 1/2 cups original Bisquick baking mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries (optional)
- 15 breakfast sausage links ( Brown n’ Serve pre-cooked, original)
- nonstick cooking spray
- 6 ounces pure maple syrup
- Pre-heat oven to 250*F.
- Heat pre-cooked sausage links per box directions (I microwave them while I prepare the mini pancakes). Microwave the pure maple syrup while preparing the sausage links.
- Thoroughly mix the Bisquick mix, milk, egg and blueberries (if using).
- Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Use 2 heaping tablespoons of batter to make each mini pancake. Do not over crowd the pan, work in small batches. When pancake starts to dry around the edges and bubble (approx 2 minutes), flip and cook on the other side (approx 1 1/2 – 2 minutes). (Cooking times may vary depending on the heat level and the type of skillet).
- Place cooked pancakes on an oven safe platter and keep warm in the oven while finishing the rest of the pancakes.
- When all pancakes are made, lay 1 cooked, warmed, breakfast sausage link across the middle of each mini pancakes, fold over (like a taco), and run a toothpick through the pancake and sausage to keep folded.
- Serve with warmed pure maple syrup for dunking and enjoy! (You may need to heat up more syrup. I only suggested 3/4 cup, but my kids would drown them while dunking and I went through a lot more than that).
