Tired of sitting over a skillet, flipping pancakes one at a time?  Easy Pancake Sausage Casserole (aka pancake mix casserole) uses five simple ingredients and will transform the way you prepare pancakes for your family.  We’ve upped the breakfast ante by combining our pancakes and breakfast meats in one delicious breakfast bake.

Easy Pancake Sausage Casserole Recipe:

Did you know you can take simple pancake mix and turn it into a pancake casserole?  Think of it as a true “pan” cake.  We didn’t know this either until stumbling upon a recipe in an old Charleston cookbook.

Simply, cut the cake into squares or rectangles and serve with syrup.  Our baked pancake bake goes one step further.  We combine the side of meat with the pancakes so it’s an entire breakfast casserole in one.

Tired of sitting over a skillet, flipping pancakes one at a time? This pancake casserole with sausage solves that problem. Make baked pancakes, instead!

For my family of 2 adults and 3 children, this recipe is perfect; it makes an 8 x 8 inch pancake, and we eat every bite.  For a bigger or hungrier family, simply double or triple the recipe. If you double it, use a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.

If you follow our blog regularly, you know that we absolutely love a recipe with 6 ingredients or less, and sausage pancake casserole falls in that category with only 5 ingredients – pancake mix, egg, butter, milk, and cooked breakfast sausage.

We have a whole plethora of recipes with 6 ingredients or less. Check them out here in our recipe box.

How to Make Baked Pancakes with Sausage:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, beat pancake mix, egg, and milk until smooth; stir in melted butter.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish; arrange cooked sausage over top.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Serve with maple syrup and extra butter if desired!

Notes About Easy Sausage Pancake Casserole:

  • Use your favorite boxed pancake mix for baked pancakes. Check out our “Kitchen Essentials” list on our Amazon storefront for some of our favorite ingredients.
  • Try doubling or tripling this recipe for a bigger family. (Our family of 5 ate the whole pan easily.)
  • Beat pancake mix, milk and egg together first, and then add the melted butter.  This prevents the hot butter from curdling the eggs.
  • We used precooked sausage patties. They were frozen so we nuked them in the microwave and cut each patty into 1/4 pieces.  You could also use cooked sausage links that you slice or crumbled pork sausage. As long as it’s sausage and it’s cooked (not frozen), then you are good to go.
  • Or, try swapping sausage for cooked, crumbled bacon in this breakfast pancake bake.
  • Serve topped with maple syrup.  Do yourself a favor and use the real deal.  There’s no comparison.
  • Looking for an egg sausage breakfast casserole? We’ve got a great option here!
