Pancake Pigs in a Blanket Recipe
Fun, right? Every summer we head up to Michigan for a family vacation and my dad always takes us to one of his favorite breakfast places. My son saw “Pigs in a Blanket” on the menu and HAD to have it…I think the exact comment was “Mom, they actually wrap the sausage in a pancake!” He thought it was the coolest thing ever. The first time he had Pancake Pigs in a Blanket was about 2 years ago. How many times has he had it since then? Twice. He orders it when we go up to Michigan. I have never made it home, nor I have ever thought about it. Until now.
September is National Breakfast Month, and my family and I are celebrating with Breakfast for Dinner. And guess what I am making?
Pancake Pigs In A Blanket.
I told the kids and they actually yelled in excitement. I love it when that happens…when they get so excited about something I am cooking I get woots 🙂
As you can see, we used Krusteaz Pancake Mix for our “blankets.” Breakfast Night is easy with Krusteaz’s pancake and waffle mixes. I received several boxes for review, we are loving our breakfast nights 🙂
