Pancakes on a Stick! With Sausage!

Pancake Sausage Muffins on a Stick



I'm one of those people who believes that everything tastes better on a stick. Be it Popsicles, Chicken on a Stick, Peas in a Pop....there's just something about food with a handle that says, "I'm telling you, you want to pick me up and find out just how delicious I am". Or something like that. When I presented Kenya and Chloe with a glass filled with an arrangement of these Pancake Sausage Muffins on a Stick for breakfast one recent morning, both of their eyes were as wide as saucers. Kenya plucked one out and meticulously dipped it in his dish of syrup prior to each bite while Chloe tore into three at the same time, first pulling out the sausages to eat, then bathing the gutted pancake muffins in syrup before stuffing her little mouth with them.

This dish will probably take you less time to make than a platter of pancakes with sautéed sausage on the side -- and the fun factor is definitely way higher. Just ask your kids, who I guarantee will agree with me that everything indeed tastes better on a stick!

    I just made these, and the boys gobbled them up! Can you freeze these to reheat on busy mornings?

      Yes! Freeze in a single layer for about 30 minutes, then transfer to a freezer safe container for up to 4 months!

    I made these tonight. I greased the mini muffin tins with butter and made per the directions. Did I do something wrong? The muffins would not come out and I had to cut them out. One 2 even resembled muffins when I was done. Should I have greased and floured instead of just greased?

      I usually use cooking spray to grease the muffin tins. When I use butter, I usually butter and flour. I think the butter probably melted into the muffins instead of staying put as a nonstick surface. Hope this helps! :)

    The kids were completely mezmerized as I was making these. :) They had them for a snack and the next day for breakfast; my husband managed to snag a few, too, before they were all gone!

    The family loved these, especially the kids. They took a lot longer to make than expected, though, so I’d definitely save these for a weekend breakfast or morning snack.

    If I freeze these, what’s the best way to reheat them?

    • catherine

      August 21, 2012 at 4:34 pm

      I like to heat them up a few at a time in the toaster oven! The regular oven will work, too, for larger batches! 350 until warm, about 5-10 minutes!

    would the baking time be the same for regular size muffin tins? I don’t have mini-muffin tins.

    I just made these and my son (17 months) and my husband couldn’t get enough of them! So easy to make and the perfect finger food for my toddler. Thank you :)

    I made these this morning for my neighbor who just had her third baby. I used tiny appetizer forks instead of sticks and called them “piglets in a swaddle” – they were a huge hit with her older kids (2 and 4) as well as her parents who are in town.

    Thanks for the idea, you made me a super star and these were so quick and easy!

    I bet these would be yummy with a little maple syrup mixed into the pancake batter (instead of dipping). I can’t wait to try them! My 3yo is recently obsessed with sausage so I know they’ll be a big hit.

    I make these for my 19-mo old son often, no sticks. Sometimes he nibbles through the whole thing using both hands, very cute. But more often he just rips open and discards the pancake to get to the sausage piece inside!

    What a creative idea! Someone mentioned fruit. I’ve tried pancake bites with pumpkin pancake batter and a sliced banana in the middle. TRY THE BANANA with this. The heat gives the banana a roasty toasty flavor that is to die for. Choc chips as someone else mentioned would also be great with the banana combo. Yum-my!!

    Thank you Catherine!

    I don’t have mini muffin pans so I will have to try them in a regular size one.

    Just made these this morning and they’re even better than regular pancakes! They came out really fluffy and although they didn’t perfectly hold to the stick, my son was mesmerized by them and ate a whole buch. I didn’t have sausage so I used deli ham. Delicious!

    I made these yesterday. Yum! I wonder if you could do different variations. Perhaps fill them with bacon crumbles, chocolate chips, lemon zest and juice,etc.

      , some don’t want help, they get too much from the problem and the drama of it all, these folks cnaont be helped until they are finally bruised enough. All we can do is as we do love them along the way and be there when they can take no more and then help them heal, learn and grow. Dream, Believe, Become

    Only recently developed an interest in Pasta, never did
    care for it too much. However my wife bought a Pasta machine
    with the idea of making the home made variety. My opinion of
    Pasta dishes has now taken an abrupt U-turn, since the taste
    of home made is totally different.
    Your colorful site caught my eye along with some of your recipes,
    especially your Four Bean Chili Spaghetti so it will be one more to add to my wife’s collection.
    I also note what a very informative site you maintain.
    Regards. Joe.

    I love this! I’m going to try a sliced strawberry,cherry, or even half a caramel for my little vegetarian (who doesn’t do syrup either). My meat-eater will love the sausage & hot dog versions, maybe even a chunk of leftover Christmas ham. Thanks!

    I can not wait to try this. Would bisquick work? Or actual pancake mix be better?

    You can freeze a large majority of homemade food. This is a great idea. I cant wait to try corn dogs like this for the kids. They love corn bread and hot dogs so it would be a great match.

      I just made baked corn dog mini muffins last weekend and my son loves them! My recipe made 30 muffins and I froze them. For my son’s kindergarten snack, I just pull three out of the freezer and send a little container of mustard or ketchup for dipping. By snack time in the afternoon, the little muffins have thawed perfectly.

      I haven’t tried yet, but they should be fine frozen and reheated.
