How to Make Pancakes & Sausage Roll Ups

Why serve pancakes rolled up with sausage links?  Well for one thing, its fun and different, plus it is fun to eat.  When entertaining with a breakfast buffet, serving silver dollar sized pancakes in a cup with maple syrup makes it easy for the host and great for the guest.  No messy plates, just dip and eat the small rolled pancake & sausage link all in one. Have extra whipped cream available in case guests want more.  I used tip # 1M to pipe the whipped cream on top of pancake rolls.

Making the buttermilk pancakes is a one bowl adventure.  Mix dry ingredients together, then add the buttermilk. Stir until batter is mixed.  Pour 6-8″ round pancakes on a greased hot griddle.  Don’t turn the pancake over until you see the pancake bubble on the top and brown around the edges.  Flip the cakes and stack on a pie place in a 200 degree oven until all the pancakes are made.

Make a-head tip:  Now that the pancakes are made, allow them cool then stack with parchment paper, wrap and freeze.  I usually will use a zip lock baggie after stacking with layers of parchment squares between cakes so they don’t stick to each other. These can be frozen for up to 30 days.  But best used within 10 days. 

Now that the pancakes are warm in the oven, remove from oven, and roll each pancake with a cooked sausage link inside.  Place the pancake in a small container with 1 tablespoon maple syrup in the bottom of the container.  Pipe fresh whipped cream on top of the pancake cone right before serving.  They are so cute and make a great breakfast buffet treat.

Tip: Roll the pancakes while they are warm so they will roll easily.  The roll is not a tight roll, more like a cone shape. I made my pancakes about 6″ round.  To see what size pancakes you need, take a piece of paper and fold into a cone shape, place it in the serving container you plan to use to see if the cone will fit without tipping over the container. It’s not rocket science but it’s a matter of balance.

The small container used is a clear rectangle, you can purchase here.

Placing 1-2 tablespoons of syrup in the bottom of the serving container will eliminate a messy bowl or bottle of syrup, as well as portion control for planning how much you will need.

Ok here’s the easy recipe.  Let me know if you make them.  Great for Saturday morning breakfast.
