This is seriously delicious. I mixed it up the night before and baked it in the morning before work. Made the sauce the night before and refrigerated overnight and heated in microwave. Such an unusual combination but it kind of reminded me of the pancake on a stick that my kids used to get at the convenience store (sausage wrapped in a pancake, kind of like a corn dog. Making it again this week and will try to get a pic this time!

Love it! I have been using this recipe for almost 20 years now. First saw it in a magazine where it won 1st prize in a Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen Breakfast Idea contest. It was the $100 winner in February 1990. I substitute in blackberries and green chile turkey sausage but otherwise keep things the same. Perfect recipe. I'm glad it's posted so others can have it.

I recently had this for the first time and loved it! Thanks for posting! I wanted to make this for my Bible Study ladies, however, one is lactose intolerent and one is allergic to nuts. So, I modified. Here is what I did different. Used non dairy margarine, used 2 Tbl oil and 4 Tbl water substituted for eggs, used non-dairy yogurt instead of sour cream (could also used non-dairy sour cream), used turkey sausage, and used whole wheat flour. I know, it's really different, but it turned out great and everyone was able to eat it!!! Thanks again!
