Holly Jolly Sausage Pancake Bites


The holidays are a busy time of year, and these Sausage Pancake Bites are the perfect make-ahead breakfast bites for Christmas morning. You only need 4 ingredients to make this twist on a classic!

I don’t know about y’all, but I need an easy recipe that feeds the family breakfast since we are already so busy in the kitchen on Christmas Day, and these Sausage Pancake Bites are where it’s at! We love sausage balls any time of year, but I was excited to try the Sausage Pancake Bites using pancake mix rather than Bisquick. Pancake mix has more sugar incorporated in the mix than Bisquick for a sweet kick. Plus, the addition of syrup gave it a sweeter taste than savory in this recipe. It also never hurts to add a drizzle or a dipping bowl of extra syrup.

Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips

  • I use a stand mixer to make mixing easy. I added all the ingredients to my stand mixer bowl and let it do its magic.
  • I also sprayed a cookie scoop with non-stick spray to make uniform bites.
  • If mixing by hand and/or forming the bites, wear food-safe gloves. I do this anytime I’m working with meat. Makes washing my hands a breeze.
  • Keep an eye on these when baking. The addition of syrup can cause them to get dark. I only baked them for 12 minutes.
  • Go ahead and bake them the night before. Then, store in an airtight container. The morning of, throw a few on a microwave-safe plate and reheat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Drizzle on some extra syrup or put out small bowls of syrup to dip.
