Here is a super easy and fun recipe that I came up with for my family this weekend. My kiddos love pancakes, and my wheels started turning on making them some kind of pancake on a stick. So this is what I came up with, Pig in a Pancake Pops. It’s a Hillshire Farms Little Smokies sausage dipped in pancake batter and baked in the oven. So easy and fun! You could easily make a big batch of these for Easter brunch, a birthday party, or a baby shower. Cute enough for a party and easy enough for everyday! Here is the step-by-step followed by the recipe.
Preheat your oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Prepare Hillshire Farm Little Smokies by pushing the stick about 3/4 of the way into the sausage so it’s in there securely. I bought these sticks in a big bag at Michaels.
Prepare your pancake batter and a pie plate of plain pancake mix. Use a small sized mixing bowl for the pancake batter so the batter is deep enough to dip the little smokies in.
Coat the little smokies in dry pancake mix and tap off the excess. This will help the batter stick to the little smokies.
Then dip the little smokies in the pancake batter.
Lay them on your parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Repeat with all your little smokies, make sure you leave plenty of space between as your batter will spread a little.
Bake at 350 until golden browned. About 10-14 minutes.
Pile them up, and enjoy!
So super cute!
Don’t forget to dunk them in maple syrup!
