My friend, Nickole, who sometimes comments on this blog, has a very yummy way of making pancakes. I saw her idea in a MOPS cookbook and tried it out on my family last Saturday. They were a HUGE hit in our home.
You make your normal pancake batter — whether it’s from scratch or the Bisquick kind like I make. And then you add cooked, crumbled up sausage to the batter. You can either brown the sausage like you would ground beef, or you can cook the patties and then crumble them up. So now your sausage is right in the pancake batter. Then fry the pancakes as you usually would. The added sausage makes the pancakes taste even more delicious.
Because I have a couple non-sausage-eaters, I made pancakes with and without sausage, but even the non-sausage-eaters were tasting the new pancakes before breakfast was over. And they loved it too!
As a side-note, fixing pancakes and sausage this way will stretch the sausage out more as my boys grow and help with the food budget. Thanks, Nickole, for a yummy recipe!
