We’ve been on a bit of a pancake kick at our house lately. We’ve made some untraditional savory Taco and Pizza pancakes for dinner. Both of which were delicious. We decided it was finally time to try a more traditional pancake recipe. We decided to kick it up a notch and make Sausage Pancakes because I love Pigs in a Blanket and Chicken Legs loves Sausage McGriddles. These were perfect for us! We made these over the weekend, because I only cook breakfast on the weekends. Breakfast during the week is grab-and-go.
I thought the pancakes were outstanding! They were perfectly sweet and savory at the same time. Chicken Leg’s review of the pancakes? “These are good. People should make these on the weekend.” Well, there you have it people. Make these this weekend!
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 3 ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp white sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 ¼ cups milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- ½ lb sausage, cooked and crumbled
- cooking spray
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, vanilla, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
Spray griddle or frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake. Sprinkle approximately 1-2 Tbsp sausage on top of pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with butter and syrup.
