How to Make Sausage Pancake Muffins

These muffins are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together milk, melted butter, egg, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Stir in sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or line muffin cups with paper liners. Spoon pancake mix into each muffin cup. Place a piece of link sausage into the center of each muffin. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can use turkey sausage links or pork breakfast sausage links.
    • If you don’t like sausage, you can substitute bacon, ham, blueberries, or strawberries.
  • For extra maple flavor, add a teaspoon of maple extract.
  • Can pancake muffins be frozen? Yes! Bake the muffins and cool completely. Place the muffins in a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
    • Reheat in the microwave.
  • For larger muffins, use a regular muffin pan and two or three pieces of sausage in each muffin. You will need to increase the baking time.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.

  1. I made these for the kids' breakfasts. They didn't last as long as I'd hoped they would, but that's alright, next time I'll make LOTS more! They obviously liked them a lot! After these cooled completely, I put them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper, and stuck it in the freezer until they were firm. Then I took them out and put them in FoodSaver bags and sealed them up. These reheated very well in the microwave and made for an easy breakfast for the kids. It took about 30 seconds for 3 of these. Just microwave at 30 second intervals until they are warm. The only thing I changed was the sausage. I used regular breakfast sausage links in place of turkey links. Just a personal preference there. Now, I better get back in that kitchen and whip up more of these little suckers! LOL Thanks for a great recipe Steph!

  2. Thanks for the great recipe! The batter has a really nice flavor. I used maple flavored sausage which added to the maple flavor. Next time I will double maybe even triple the recipe as they are great to heat up in the morning or for eating on the run. Thanks again!

  3. There was another muffin pancake sausage thingy floating around Pinterest. Yours is MUch Much Yummier!! My kids love them, they freeze well (if I make a Double batch AND one of my kids takes them as her lunch. she has to take extra because everyone wants some! Delish!! and Pinned and Raved! 🙂

  4. OH how neat! I cant wait to try this recipe. I have 3 young children, 2,4 and 7, and I'm always looking for new and different ways to prepare the foods that they love. Thanks for posting this one 🙂
