Apple Sausage Pancakes

Apple Sausage Pancakes

These savory pancakes were delicious! Can you guess who chose to make them for his dinner night? Yep. The youngest member of our family who would choose breakfast every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I was surprised at how tasty they were. I’m thinking these will make another appearance on our table, either for breakfast or dinner. The syrup was a great accompaniment. I tried it with regular syrup and without any syrup at all and the apple syrup really made the flavor. Enjoy!

Apple and Sausage Pancakes
1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
1 egg
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup pancake mix
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup shredded peeled apple

Cider Syrup:
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup apple cider
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter

In a skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside. In a bowl, beat the egg, milk, and oil. Stir in pancake mix and cinnamon just until moistened. Fold in apple and sausage. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until second side is golden brown.

For syrup, combine the sugar, cornstarch and pumpkin pie spice in a saucepan. Gradually stir in cider and lemon juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in butter until melted. Serve warm with the pancakes.

Makes about 8 pancakes
