Let’s talk about breakfast for dinner… Breakfast for dinner around here aka “brinner” (it’s totally a thing) is a family favorite. Actually it might be the favorite. I’ve told you guys before how my kiddos consume pancakes like liquid. I kid you not, they like to see who eats the most! Not only do the kiddos love it, but pancakes for dinner are my total go-to on a rough chaotic day…you know those days it’s 5 o’clock and you forgot to lay out meat? Yep, those are brinner days around here. We generally stick with Krusteaz buttermilk pancakes, but they are never the same.
I like to change it up for the kids and add in whatever mix-ins we can find! Sprinkles, blueberries, strawberries, nuts, chocolate chips…you name it, I’ve put it in a pancake! This time for breakfast for dinner I thought…why not mix in the meat as well? So I grabbed a bag of precooked sausage crumbles (oh my, easy and yummy) and tossed in a few blueberries and created an easy dinner with fruit, meat, and pancakes of course. Our family really loved these and I hope you guys do too!
Prep Time 5 min Total Time 15 min Servings 8-10
2 cups Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
1 1/3 cups cold water
3/4 cup precooked sausage crumbles (can be found precooked in the sausage section)
1/2 cup blueberries Syrup & butter
Preheat nonstick griddle to 375°F. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together pancake mix and water until fully combined. In a separate small bowl mix together sausage crumbles and blueberries. Scoop pancake mix onto griddle 1/4 cup at a time sprinkling sausage crumbs and blueberries onto the top of each pancake right after pouring it on to the griddle (approximately 2 tablespoons onto each pancake). Let each pancake cook approximately 1½ minutes then flip over to the second side and cook an additional 1½ minutes. Serve warm topped with butter, syrup, and additional blueberries and sausage if desired.
