Breakfast/Brunch Pigs in a Blanket

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by rosie316

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).

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  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).
