Bacon in a Blanket for Breakfast

Bacon in a Blanket for Breakfast

Today is National Pigs in a Blanket day, yay! Instead of your traditional hot dog in a blanket or cocktail weenie wrapped in dough, we decided to bring you a breakfast version of this kid loved recipe.  Sausage, syrup, and pancakes… you can’t go wrong (you can even use veggie links for this one!).


3 Cups all-purpose flour

2-teaspoon baking soda

2-teaspoon baking powder 

2-teaspoons of salt


¼ cups of buttermilk

¼ cups of vegetable oil

16-18 pork sausage links (or veggie links), cooked


1 cup of sugar

1 cup of brown sugar

½ cups of water

½ teaspoons of vanilla extract

½ teaspoons of maple flavoring


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking power and salt. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk and oil.

Blend wet ingredients into dry ingredients.

Pour batter by ¼ cups into a lightly greased hot griddle pan, you should be able to cook one or two pancakes in your pan depending on its size.

Flip over with a spatula when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Cook until the second side is golden brown. Remove and place on a plate. Repeat the process until you have an equal amount of pancakes and sausage links (unless of course you want to make extra pancakes for later).

Roll each pancake around a sausage link.

For the Syrup

In a small saucepan combine sugars and water and bring to a boil. Add in your vanilla extract and maple flavoring and turn stove off.

Serve syrup warm with your ‘pigs in a blanket’.
