Pancake Muffins: The Results (+ menu)

There were so many of you that were interested in the results of my experiments that I got right to it and made these for Monday's breakfast. I made a control batch and then I made some varieties. I am so pleased with the results.

Note: Each of the following recipes make 6 muffins

Control: (Plain) Pancake Sausage Muffins:
2 cups complete pancake mix (the just add water kind)
1 cup water
1/3 cup sausage links, cut into small pieces
Brown sausage, drain and pat with paper towel to remove all excess grease. (I cooked up an entire pound to make all three of these varieties.)Mix water and pancake mix. Fold in sausage. Spoon into a greased muffin tin. Bake 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.

Maple Blueberry Sausage Pancake Muffins:
2 cups complete pancake mix
1 cup water
3/4 cup blueberries
2 tsp maple syrup per muffin
1/3 lb sausage links, cut into small pieces and cooked
Combine water and pancake mix. Fold in sausage. Fold in blueberries. Fill greased muffin cups halfway. Squirt 2 tsp maple syrup on top of batter. Top with remaining muffin batter. Bake 350 degrees for 15-20 mintues (these are bigger, so they needed a little more time than the control batch)

Chili Cheese Sausage Pancake Muffins
2 cups complete pancake mix
1 cup water
2 Tbls canned chopped green chilies
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 lb sausage links, cut into small pieces and cooked
Combine water and pancake mix. Fold in sausage, chilies and cheese. Scoop into 6 greased muffin tins. Bake 350 degrees 15-20 minutes.

Thanks for sharing this with us! I'm definitely going to make some of the plain sausage ones - Hubz will love having those for a quick and easy breakfast and I have everything on hand already :)

Sounds great. I like the first plain one. I bet for a little added dipping the muffin in syrup would be great.

Thanks for the email heads up.

What a great idea! I have to admit I hate making pancakes the normal way, so yay!

I'm wondering whether you think these would freeze well? I could make them up on Sunday for the rest of the week if they did.
