Breakfast/Brunch Pigs in a Blanket

"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)."

Ready In:
15 pancakes




  • Pre-heat oven to 250*F.
  • 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.
  • Thoroughly mix the Bisquick mix, milk, egg and blueberries (if using).
  • 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).
  • Place cooked pancakes on an oven safe platter and keep warm in the oven while finishing the rest of the pancakes.
  • 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.
  • 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).

    What a fun and yummy breakfast/lunch for our Saturday!! I am trying to avoid foods with preservatives for health reasons, so I skipped the baking/biscuit mix and made my own pancake mix, which is still close to the same type of pancake using Bisquick. We also had some Johnsonville sausage links at home, so I cooked those up for the pigs!! I bought real maple syrup recently to make a homemade granola that was made on a show on TV, so this was a perfect time to enjoy more of it. Thanks for sharing the recipe and congrats again on another win in the football pool game!!!

    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 Recipe #214213 (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..

    These pancakes were awesome! Made them this morning and used the breakfast sausages as directed. DH really enjoyed them with syrup, but I just enjoyed them all by themselves. I made mine on a electric griddle and they worked perfectly. Guess I should have some sugar-free syrup on hand, but I really think they are great without it. I'll definitely make them again; especially for my grandkids -- they'll think I'm the greatest Nana on earth -- and I am! : ) Made for PRMR, January, 2014.


<p>&nbsp;</p> <p>(FYI Update: 06/03/14)... My About Me page is correct. I joined as a member on March 19, 2012 (2+ years ago). But if you click on my public recipes, it states that I joined on Dec 29, 2112. It's way off... but I'm sure the staff will take care of this issue soon. (I will remove this when this error has been corrected).</p> <p>Anyway...</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Hi fellow chefs. Looking to expand here. Everyone on here has been a pleasure to meet &amp; share recipes with.</p> <p>My hubby and I live in Northern Illinois USA, just NW of Chicago. I'm a very proud mom of 2 kids (my daughter in college &amp; my son in highschool). I also have 4 semi step-children, from which we are now proud grandparents of a 4th grandchild (June 2013).</p> <p>I love to cook and experiment (using my family &amp; friends as guinea pigs). If I had the time and $$$, I would spend all of it on creating dishes to feed people. I try to have family and neighbors over whenever possible to feed them. I've cooked many large meals (at home) to take to our county's women/children's shelter, and also to the homeless men that spend 1 night, (once a week), in the local church basement. It's the right thing to do (when you can afford to do it).</p> <p>I love to throw a party, even when it isn't a holiday. Cookouts in the summer or a bring a dish to pass type of get together or an appetizer only event, or even a fondue party. But my favorite... a rolling dinner party ... that's when each of our neighbors who participate pick a dish, and we walk to their home to have cocktails at house #1, then on to house #2 for appetizers, then house # 3 for soup &amp; salad, house # 4 is the entree, and finally house # 5 is dessert! Now keep in mind, we take house #1's cocktails with us when we go on to the next few houses! LOL It's alot of fun. Try it sometime. We usually do it the weekend before Christmas and then go caroling the neighborhood. It's hilarious... grown adults, with full bellys, withstanding temps in the single digits, singing to the community!</p> <p>Sorry folks, I tend to ramble. Anyway, in any spare time, I love to garden. Flowers, veggies and herbs. Always planting in the spring/summer when I can. My bucket list includes making a Moon Garden. Not the kind that some farmers use as a planting chart, but a garden containing flowers, herbs and veggies that are white or somewhat white in color, and they glow beautifully under the moonlight!&nbsp;</p> <p>Hubby and I are caretakers for a little cabin, up north of us, in Wisconsin. It is truely a thing to see. Located on 40 acres (formerly a paper mill plantation). Huge pine trees abound and so very peaceful. The downside is... NO electricity and NO running water. That's correct... we literally have an outhouse (like a skinny, wooden shed with a hole beneath it and a crescent moon cut in the door). Ewww. Sorry.&nbsp;We use propane to grill with, and have a oil burning stove in the little 2 room cabin. We also use a charcoal grill or our wood smoker, on which we make a brisket every time we go up there. Another favorite thing to make are Pudgie Pies using cast iron pie irons over the open firepit!... Google them... they are fun and tasty! We also have a trailer set up for the youngsters that has a propane stovetop and oven. And when we go in the summer, there is a farm stand just 15 minutes away that we can get fresh produce from. It's great! And luckily, the public lake (2nd largest in Wisconsin) is only 20 minutes away. They have a beach with restrooms and showers. It's a blast going there. We take the kids and grandkids with on occasion and have a great time! We love to ATV around the trails on those 40 acres of heaven.</p> <p>Okay, on we go...I have been working independently as an owner/operator of a pet grooming salon for 20 plus years, which is why I now have a Chinese Crested dog, (pretty much hairless, so basically, no real grooming involved). We also have a cat, 4 ducks &amp; drakes, and 2 chickens. Oh... and a $0.15 cent goldfish that I bought from the pet store, because he was too cute to be in the stores feeder fish tank. The old one lived 3 yrs and had passed, and grand-babies missed seeing him. I got a new one. The new one with us still doesn't have a name.&nbsp;</p> <p>So, there you&nbsp; have it... thats me.</p> <p>-Rosie</p> <p>My rating/review system is as follows:</p> <p>5 stars - Excellent, as is. Would not change a thing.</p> <p>4 stars - Very good, liked by most.</p> <p>3 stars - Good, but needs to be altered on some things.</p> <p>2 stars -&nbsp; It could have potential, but not for me.</p> <p>1 star - Will not attempt again.</p> <p>0 stars - I only post a reply without stars to comment, as I do not want to mess up someone's rating.</p>
