Breakfast Recipes: Sausage Pancake Bites

I had a $1 off coupon the other day for Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles. I thought they looked kind of neat. They come in Original, Hot & Turkey. I tossed them in my cart, I figured I'd mix them in some scrambled eggs one morning, sprinkle them on a tortilla pizza, in my Bites (crustless quiches) or drop them in some soup then insomnia hit last night so at 3 AM I messed around in the kitchen and made these...

Shelly's Sausage Pancake Bites

1/2 cup Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry
1/3 cup Soy Milk (any milk would do)
1/4 cup Torani Sugar Free Caramel Syrup
1/3 cup Cooked Sausage Crumbles

Mix pancake mix, milk, syrup together till thoroughly combined. Pour batter into a 12 cup mini muffin tin that has been sprayed with Pam. Fill about 3/4 way up.

Top each muffin with a few sausage crumbles (or sliced leftovers of cooked sausage would work great too.)

Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until golden. Serve with SF Maple syrup for dipping.

Mmmm it's the perfect combination of sweet and salty. They are soooo flippin' good. They are sort of a cross between a McDonald's McGriddle and those Dunkin Donuts Pancake Sausage Mini Corn Dog looking dealios they have but healthier. Perfect breakfast on the go. Toss a couple of these in a snack size Ziploc baggie, pack some protein like this, bring a bottle of water and you'll be waaaay better off then any drive-thru.

Would definitely make a great addition to a Christmas morning breakfast buffet. Thinking next insomnia bout I'll try a bacon version.

Oh and they reheat great. When the rest of the household got up I tossed them in the toaster oven for a few minutes and they were as good as they were at 3 AM.

I used Sugar Free Caramel Torani in this but you could definitely use the new Sugar Free Salted Caramel flavor. Have you entered to win the Holiday Prize Pack of Sugar Free Torani yet? Entry info.
