How to Make Kelly's Sausage Pancake Bites! W/apple variation


  1. Cook sausage til done in frying pan, breaking up into small pieces as you go. Remove with slotted spoon to a papertowel-lined plate. Make batter.
    In medium bowl, whisk egg til frothy. Whisk in milk, vanilla and oil. In small bowl, whisk well the dry ingredients to mix. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir all til just moistened but still a little lumpy. Fold in about 2/3 of the cooked sausage. Spray a mini muffin pan with vegetable oil spray. Fill each cup with sausage batter almost all the way to the tops. Sprinkle each with rest of crumbled cooked sausage. Bake in 350 degree oven til golden. Depending on your oven, 13-15 minutes. You'll be able to see the sides turning a light golden brown. Remove from pan with a spoon and serve with butter and warm maple syrup for dunking! Wah lah! :D Easy peasy and SOOOO Good!!! :D
  2. Variation:
    If you like an Apple~Sausage flavor, just add 1/2 cup chunky applesauce to the batter and decrease the milk to 3/4 cup.
