Easy Pancake Breakfast Sandwiches

Easy to make, assemble and customize. Easy pancake breakfast sandwiches also freeze well for busy mornings.

pancake muffinsThe New Year has begun, the kids are back in school and I finally have some time to devote to the blog.  Life has a way of getting busy and as a mom I find myself taking care of everyone else’s needs before my own.  Creating things for my blog is a creative outlet that I have desperately missed.  I have some fun things planned for 2018 for my creative space and I can’t wait.pancake muffins 5The first recipe I want to share with you is Easy Pancake Breakfast Sandwiches.  These are one of my kid’s favorite breakfasts, especially when we are headed out on a road trip or on a busy morning where we can pop a pre-made breakfast sandwich into the microwave.  In our house we call them “Memaw Muffins” because my mom was the first one to serve them to the kids and they are a favorite meal at her house.

pancake muffins 4I like them because they are easy to make, assemble and to freeze for later.  I also have all the ingredients on hand most of the time.  There are 3 basic ingredients: pancakes, a fried egg (I like to break the yolk so it cooks faster and is spread through the egg) and ham.  You could add a slice of cheese if you so desire.  I have used left-over ham from thanksgiving or a simple slice of deli ham.  I make my own pancake batter with the recipe I will share below, but you could also use a pancake mix or even frozen pancakes.  We get an assembly line going so we can make a bunch all at once.

pancake muffins 6They are super easy to customize to each person’s tastes so everyone has a breakfast that they love.  For busy mornings I like to wrap some in parchment paper, put them in a zip-top bag and pop them in the freezer.  Then all the kids have to do is microwave the wrapped, frozen sandwich for 30-45 seconds and breakfast is ready.  What could be easier?
