1/2 lb pork sausage (You can use regular, maple, or hot and spicy)

1. Brown the sausage and set aside.
2. Mix pancake batter.
3. Heat a medium sized non-stick pan to medium.
4. Pour the pancake batter into the hot pan.
5. Sprinkle a small handful of sausage onto the batter in the pan. Let cook until the bubbles in the middle of the pancake pop and the holes do not fill up again with batter.
6. Flip the pancake and cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until golden brown.
7. If you would like to keep your pancakes warm while the others cook, place them on a baking sheet and add to an oven set to 200 degrees.
These are a great sweet and savory breakfast treat, perfect for those who want it both ways! What’s your favorite Christmas morning breakfast? Let us know in the comments. Perhaps this will become one of your favorites!
