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.

Disclosure: This quick breakfast ideas recipe is sponsored by Johnsonville and features their breakfast sausage.

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

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 easy breakfast ideas like this one!

If it’s portable, even better. Since we only have one car, when my kids were younger, sometimes I gave them breakfast or lunch to eat in the stroller as I walked them where we needed to go.

Now they occasionally need to eat as we walk or while riding in the car.

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.

Mornings are busy but it's important to eat a good breakfast. We love quick breakfast ideas like this Sausage Pancake Muffins recipe. It's easy to make ahead too!

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!

How to Make Sausage Pancake Muffins

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a cupcake tin or place your liners. (Alternately use a silicone muffin tin)

Stir the dry ingredients (salt, baking powder, flour, and sugar) together in one bowl.

Crack the eggs and mix them with the milk. Melt the butter and stir it in too.

How to make sausage pancake muffins

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix together until the dry ingredients are wet, but do not over mix. The batter should be a bit lumpy.

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.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!

Some mornings it is hard to squeeze in enough time to eat, even though it's important to fuel up! Anything to take some of that stress off is a win in my book. :)
