Pancake and Sausage Muffins

Pancake and Sausage Muffins

Does your family have a breakfast for dinner night? We only tend to have breakfast for dinner when Daddy isn’t home. He’s a meat and potato guy and wants his breakfast in the morning. If you don’t have a breakfast night,  Krusteaz wants to help by earmarking Wednesday’s as Breakfast Night. Krusteaz has many different options for you to choose from to make your breakfast such as Buttermilk Pancakes, Blueberry Belgian Waffles, Chocolate Chunk Muffins, Honey Wheat Pancakes, and also a gluten-free pancake mix.

I’ve seen this recipe floating around on Pinterest on many different blogs and wanted to give it a try for my family. It was a huge hit! The recipe made 24 muffins and only 7 were remaining after our family of 6 devoured them! I like that there are a few leftovers for kids to pop in the microwave on a busy day. You could even freeze these in batches so it’s really easy to have a fast, delicious breakfast or “brinner” (breakfast for dinner)!

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a "baby "chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she's still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She's since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.


  1. Glad you shared this. I want to try something like this for Jesse. I love that I can make these in advance and freeze them for when he wants one. There’s probably a ton of variations you can do too. I bet you can even cut them open and put egg between the two halves like a McGriddle.

  2. this looks so good!! I want to try now.

  3. Thanks for coming by Simply Sundays @Simple Plate! These look soooo good! I love pancakes, hate the griddle mess!

  4. Our most common brinner is Omelets. They are too labor intensive to cook for dinner.

    I really like your recipe. I am surprised that the pancake mix came out like a muffin when baked.
