Breakfast/Brunch Pigs in a Blanket

Total Time

This is a great take on the "Pigs in a Blanket" that are often served as a party appetizer. Why not surprise your family with this breakfast version? My kids never cared for breakfast sausage links when they were young until I started making these (they always just wanted cold cereal or pancakes). Now my daughter is off to college, and my son is in high-school, and they both make these for breakfast. Very few ingredients and time are needed. I hope you enjoy these little breakfast bites. (Also great when served for a Sunday brunch).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 250*F.
  2. Heat pre-cooked sausage links per box directions (I microwave them while I prepare the mini pancakes). Microwave the pure maple syrup while preparing the sausage links.
  3. Thoroughly mix the Bisquick mix, milk, egg and blueberries (if using).
  4. Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Use 2 heaping tablespoons of batter to make each mini pancake. Do not over crowd the pan, work in small batches. When pancake starts to dry around the edges and bubble (approx 2 minutes), flip and cook on the other side (approx 1 1/2 - 2 minutes). (Cooking times may vary depending on the heat level and the type of skillet).
  5. Place cooked pancakes on an oven safe platter and keep warm in the oven while finishing the rest of the pancakes.
  6. When all pancakes are made, lay 1 cooked, warmed, breakfast sausage link across the middle of each mini pancakes, fold over (like a taco), and run a toothpick through the pancake and sausage to keep folded.
  7. Serve with warmed pure maple syrup for dunking and enjoy! (You may need to heat up more syrup. I only suggested 3/4 cup, but my kids would drown them while dunking and I went through a lot more than that).

This was a fun breakfast to make. I used a different pancake mix from another tag (very similar) and we loved this quick and tasty treat. I can't wait to make these for my grandkids next time they're over. Or actually.....maybe they'll have fun making them for me. lol. Thanks, Rosie for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

Nice little start to the morning. Very easy, and flavorful too. I had a couple extra strawberries, so I diced them up, and folded them into these. Used the George Foreman grill for these, and it worked out very nice. Made for PRMR TAG.

Made for your Football Pool win & I took a cpl of liberties because of where I am & what is easily available. I made my own link sausages using Homemade Breakfast Sausage (a pers fave since classic breakfast sausage is not available here). Then I used Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread Mix for the pancakes - a mix from a Seattle-based company designed to be used for quick bread, cookies & pancakes. I know this changed the recipe substantially, but the basic intent was there & the outcome was outstanding for a fall or winter holiday breakfast/brunch inspired by your recipe. Congrats on your 2nd FP win & thx for sharing this recipe w/us..
