Jump-start your morning with these easy-to-make mini sausage pancake muffins. The whole family will love these delicious breakfast bites that we’re thrilled to share with you today as part of a sponsored partnership with Johnsonville.  Sausage Pancake Mini MuffinsLove a hot breakfast? We do here too! But, I don’t always love cooking up a hot breakfast! Getting out the griddle, making pancakes, cooking bacon, etc. can end up taking up quite a bit of time! No so with these sausage pancake muffins though! From getting the ingredients out to eating was just less than 15 minutes (and 10 minutes of that was oven time where I could clean up everything else) – YES!!!! Plus, everyone seems to love bite-sized food, so you can’t go wrong with some “pigs in a blanket” muffins – breakfast style!

Quick & Easy Breakfast

Sausage Pancake BitesWhile we love bacon too, the secret to these tasty pancake bites is swapping out strips for Johnsonville’s Fully Cooked breakfast links. The sausage actually provides more protein than bacon and is already cooked, full of built-in flavor! So handy! I’m all for ways to save some time in the kitchen! By using Johnsonville’s Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage in this recipe, I didn’t have to dirty extra dishes or use up time cooking multiple items. Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage

How to Make Sausage Pancake Muffins: 

The process to making these little tasty breakfast bites is SO easy! All you have to do is whip up a batch of pancake batter, cut the fully cooked sausage links in thirds, and add everything to mini muffin tins! You’ll pop them in the oven (at 350F) for 10-12 minutes and that’s it! Done, easy, and SO good! Making Sausage Pancake MuffinsOnce the mini muffins are done, serve them warm with a small bowl of maple syrup for dipping! YES! These are a HUGE hit at our house! Another bonus is that you could make a big batch of these and freeze them! They’re perfect for kids to pop in the microwave on a busy school morning to have a hot breakfast! Easy, quick, and tasty – ALWAYS a win! Sausage Pancake Dippers

  • Cut sausage links into thirds. Place one slice of sausage link into the center of each muffin well.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, until muffins are golden and cooked through.

These can be made ahead in large batches and frozen if desired. From frozen, just reheat the muffins in the microwave.

  1. I can’t wait to fed my two growing toddlers!!!!
    I made just pancake Minnie muffins and they gobbled theme up barley leaving mama any!

  2. I would have taken a picture of the finished product but they were all gone. Made the for the first time today to use up the breakfast sausages left over from Christmas morning. This is a new family hit! I see a future where I will make these (in secret) in large batches and them having them on hand to put into school lunches , snacks after school, or on a Saturday afternoon.
