For the busiest mornings, make a grab and go breakfast like this quick sausage pancake muffins recipe.

Ahh, mornings. The time when I need quick breakfast ideas to keep my composure and the day on track. I always have high hopes for a beautiful morning. I imagine getting up before the kids, showering, getting ready, and eating a quiet breakfast. Or, perhaps reading or getting a bit of work done. Then my bright-eyed, smiling children would wake up in the most pleasant moods and happily eat whatever I make for them that morning.

Yeah, that's not quite how my mornings go either. I'm not a morning person which means I don't like getting up very early. In fact, my eyes protest. My kids usually wake up shortly after I do, regardless of the time. (How do they know?!)

Because of my struggle to be an early riser, I often feel rushed in the mornings. Breakfast is important, but I feel more relaxed when I can serve it up quickly. This is why I'm a huge fan of making freezer meals that result in quick breakfast ideas like this one!

If it's portable, even better. Since we only have one car, sometimes I give the kids breakfast or lunch to eat in the stroller as I walk them where we need to go. Even if we don't need to be anywhere right away in the morning, it makes things smoother.

The kids love pancakes and sausages, but they aren't easy to eat on-the-go. So, I decided to make pancake muffins with sausage in them. The kids thought they were fun because they look like cupcakes. (That is one reason why I decided to use cupcake liners!) These can also be baked ahead and frozen. Just pop them in the microwave to heat them up!

  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 TBS sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

Fill each well of the cupcake/muffin tin about 3/4 full. Cut sausages into bite sized pieces. Add them to the cups before baking. The amount will vary depending on how much meat you want in each one and the size you cut.
