I found this recipe in a Betty Crocker magazine that I received. I thought it looked like a quick and easy recipe. I also love the taste of sausage and maple syrup together. I am a big fan of sweet and savory flavors combined, so I thought it was worth trying. My whole family loved it. Next time, I think I’ll double the recipe though. My family was asking for more. The only thing I did different with the recipe was use 1 pound of sausage instead of 12 oz. The only trick I can suggest for this recipe is that once you pour the batter over the sausage and cheese use a knife to help spread the batter around. I tried to use a rubber spatula at first and it didn’t work as well.
Sausage Oven Pancake
1 (12 oz) pkg pork sausage
1 cup cheddar cheese , shredded
1/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp. maple-flavored syrup
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil (I always use canola)
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 cup maple-flavored syrup
Cook sausage in skillet, stirring frequently, until no longer pink. Drain sausage on paper towels. Spread sausage into a 8 inch of 9 inch square baking dish. Sprinkle cheese over sausage. In large bowl, beat egg, milk, 2 tbsp syrup, and the oil with a wire whisk until well blended. Beat in flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour batter evenly over sausage and cheese. Bake 25 to 30 min at 350 degrees until golden brown. Serve topped with remaining maple syrup.
