Maple Pancake Sausage Casserole


This recipe was created because an item I had purchased at a wholesale club was discontinued. It was maple silver dollar pancakes with maple sausage sandwiched between the pancakes. Since they were discontinued, I have searched in every grocery store in my area to find them. Struck out everywhere. So I created a casserole because it would be much faster to prepare in the morning. 


Ingredients:

1 pound of bulk maple sausage, I used Jimmy Dean

3 cups of pancake mix, prepare according to directions on box

2 Tablespoons or more of maple extract

Butter

Maple syrup, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 13 x 9 baking dish with nonstick spray. Brown sausage, drain and place in the baking dish. Prepare pancake mix according to directions using 3 cups of pancake mix.  That should say it yields anywhere from 16 – 25 pancakes depending on the brand you use. Add maple extract to the batter. Taste the batter, I wish I would have added more extract to my batter but I wanted a stronger maple taste.  Pour batter evenly over the sausage on the bottom of the casserole. Bake for 30 -40 minutes until pancake topping is tested with a cake tester and comes out clean. Remove from oven an spread butter on top of pancake topping.  Cut into pieces and pour on the maple syrup if desired. 


This breakfast casserole comes together quickly and is very easy to make. Perfect for breakfast or brunch. This casserole can be reheated easily if you have any leftovers. Enjoy!
