About the Recipe
These muffins start with pancake mix then, stir in cooked breakfast sausage and maple syrup and bake in mini muffin cups for about 12 minutes.
If making a regular sized muffin, follow the recipe- but bake for 20 – 23 minutes.
You can freeze pancake muffins for a easy and fast breakfast! Thaw overnight or in the morning, just pop in the microwave. Making these little muffin gems ahead of time is a definite bonus!
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cook pork breakfast sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking it up, until no pink remains. Drain well and set aside to cool slightly.
Prepare one batch of pancake mix according to package instructions. Stir in sausage crumbles and maple syrup.
Spray a mini muffin tin with baking spray. Fill each muffin cup about ⅔ full. Bake 12 - 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean. Cool slightly on a wire rack before serving. Serve with maple syrup on the side.
