Recipe: Pancake and Sausage Muffins

I have been in such a funk with cooking these past several months. Daniel wasn't the only one who has been tired of what I've been serving up.

So, I decided to start adding some new recipes in to our rotation...and giving some oldie-but-goodies that we hadn't tried in a while another go!

Here is one of our new discoveries, that we have all loved:

Pancake Sausage Muffins
(I found these at Heavenly Homemakers - I just love this mama!)

You really can't see the sausage in my picture here...but I assure you: it's in there!

And it. is. yummy!

We've made this twice now, and it is definitely a keeper!

But then we're a breakfast-loving family. But we like to switch it up and have Breakfast for Supper...we're just crazy that way! Rebels, I know...

So, serve these up with some milk and a little fruit....supper is ready!

Pancake-Sausage Muffins

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 1/2 cups milk or buttermilk

2 eggs

1/3 cup melted butter

1/2 pound cooked ground turkey or turkey sausage (or nine sausage links, cut in half)

Real maple syrup

(If you want to soak your flour overnight to break down the phytates to aid in digestion, mix the flour and cultured buttermilk in a glass bowl, cover and let it sit on your countertop for 12 hours or so. The next morning, mix the remaining ingredients in and bake as directed below. This would totally be better for you, but I haven't thought ahead enough to do this the couple times I've made this thus far. Reminder to self: Do this next time!)

If you don’t soak the flour ahead of time: Mix dry ingredients together. Add milk or buttermilk, eggs and melted butter. Stir in browned turkey sausage.

Pour batter into 18 buttered muffin tins. (I don’t recommend paper muffin liners for this as it will stick.)

Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until the muffins are lightly browned.

Serve with maple syrup (Don't - whatever you do! - use the imitation "syrup" at the grocery store. Step away from the imitation syrup, before someone gets hurt! It usually just has High Fructose Corn Syrup, artificial coloring and artificial flavoring. Buy "REAL Maple Syrup", you can even get it at Walm*art. Yes, it costs more, but it actually comes from a maple tree, and actually has some vitamins and minerals in it. Give each person a little custard dish on their plate with a little syrup and then dip your muffin in there. The idea is "A little syrup with your muffin" (or pancake, as the case may be)....NOT "A little muffin with your syrup"!)


  1. OOO Those sound AWESOME...I will have to make them soon. Of course with my Picky kids I can't let them know there is sausage in them.. Thank you so much for your recipe...

    Just to add I am getting sneaky... I put Zucchini (chopped very fine) in our bread now.. and the KIDDOS don't have a clue..MOOOHHAAAAAA
