I found this fun recipe for sausage oven pancake square in a Betty Crocker magazine that I received. I thought it looked like a quick and easy recipe. It’s also a fun change from your standard pancakes and sausage. I personally 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 this dish. 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 sausage oven pancake square 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.

- 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.
