Easy Sausage Pancake Casserole

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Milkman's Daughter

I LOVE this quick, easy recipe for breakfast or dinner. All package pancake mixes are a little different, I use a Buttermilk store brand that you just add water to. I use it for 18 or more pancakes (about two cups) and then add the water it indicates on the package. This recipe comes from my sister (she served it to hungry kids when they had sleepovers). If you like less sausage and want more of the "cake", just use 8 ounces of the sausage links. I've also added 1/2 cup of syrup to the batter for a little extra sweetness and flavor. This cake will not always become golden brown, just a little around the edges.

this will be a new favorite at my house! we used one cup of pancake mix (I had trader joe's instant coconut pancakes on hand that I mixed with half water/half milk for a hardier texture) and 12 oz of "country" sausage that I cooked up the night before. we kept the butter and syrup separate, and... WOW! what a dish! this is definitely going in the "houseguests breakfast casserole" book. thanks for the share!
