How to Make Sausage Pancakes

These pancakes are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large skillet, cook breakfast sausage over medium-high heat until no longer pink and crumbled. Drain excess grease on a paper towel lined plate.

Sift together all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together milk, egg, vanilla, and melted butter. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients. Stir until smooth.

Spray a griddle or frying pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Scoop pancake batter onto the griddle. Sprinkle the top of the pancakes with a tablespoon of cooked sausage crumbles. When the pancake bubbles, flip it and cook until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • I use Jimmy Dean pork sausage. You can use any sausage you like: sausage patties or chopped breakfast sausage links work great.
    • Substitute turkey sausage for lower calories.
  • Can I freeze Sausage Pancakes? Yes. Cool the pancakes to room temperature. Wrap individual pancakes in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to four months.
    • Thaw and reheat in the microwave or air fryer.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.

What to Serve with Sausage Stuffed Pancakes

These pancakes are a favorite at our house. They are perfectly sweet and savory at the same time. We love to whip up a batch on the weekends. When serving up a stack of these pancakes, I’ve got some delicious options for you. A classic choice is to serve them with a side of scrambled or fried eggs, adding a protein-rich element to your breakfast. For a fresh and vibrant touch, consider adding a fruit salad or a platter of fresh berries on the side to balance the richness of the pancakes.  And, of course, don’t forget to serve them with a generous pat of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup to enhance the sweetness of the pancakes.

  1. This is the way to eat pancakes! I've been doing this for a little while now…saw it on some food show–I think it was "Man vs. Food" and now we're hooked! My husband thinks normal pancakes are too sweet but even he's a fan of these.

  2. I don't know why, but I've never put anything in pancakes but blueberries. I like all of your ideas including the savory ones and I'm not at all surprised these were outstanding.

  3. I wish my hubby would eat pancakes. He's a fuddy duddy when he says he doesn't like something. He won't try it all.

    They sound good to me. Maybe I can make them and smack, lick and oooh my way into getting him to taste them.
