One of my kids’ favorite treats are Pigs in a Blanket (try my Brown Sugar Bacon ones HERE!). They love them for breakfast, lunch or an afterschool snack. We almost always serve them on the first morning of school too!
Buuuuuuuut they’re not gluten-free. So far, I haven’t found any easy substitutes, so I made them these one day…and my kids WERE OBSESSED!
They’re the traditional little smokie sausages but dipped in pancake batter and baked. They’re just the tiniest bit sweet and a whole lot of hearty for busy mornings. I love them because they’re super simple (like crazy easy), plus, they keep in the fridge and re-heat easily too.
So, if you’re g-free or just looking for an easy alternative for breakfast tomorrow, try our Pancake Pigs 🙂 .Print
If you use a g-free pancake mix, this is an easy twist on traditional Pigs in a Blanket! They’re a little sweet and a whole lot of delicious.
- 1 cup of pancake mix (we use Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free)
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 (14 oz) package of little smokies sausages
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Line a baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up) and then set a cooling rack over the top (sounds weird, but do it…make sure your cooling rack is oven safe!). Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together your pancake mix, egg and milk. Next, open your package of smokies and add them all to the bowl, tossing and coating each one.
- Take each smokie and place it on your cooling rack. Repeat.
- Pop your baking sheet in the oven and bake about 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Serve and enjoy!
These are great reheated in the microwave after storing in the fridge too.
