Pigs in a Pancake

0 Comment

When you cook for 4 children, some nights breakfast is the only thing that suits everyone’s palates. ::picky palates::

So take this simple little recipe and give it a try. You won’t be sorry. Let’s just say that EVERY single picky person ate at least 3 of these little piggies, if not more. Some ate 5. Or 6. I won’t say who. As if they care. All they could say was “YUMMMM…”

And that night, we all lived happily ever after.

Whip up some gluten free pancake batter. Throw a little olive oil or dairy free butter (you can go here to see the kind we use) onto your skillet and once hot, pour pancake batter to make about 3″ in diameter pancakes.

Once the batter sets, put your already cooked sausage on the pancake. Place it so that it’s off-center a bit. Once the bottom of the cake is cooked, gently fold the pancake over the sausage – it will form a little sandwich, of sorts.
