Trim and Healthy Sausage Pancakes- E

Today I made some yummy and filling pancakes. Breakfast is always hard for me because I don’t like to eat when I first get up. After looking in the fridge and finding some browned ground turkey I had a plan. I made the turkey into breakfast sausage and made some Trim Healthy Pancake batter (page 223 in the Trim Healthy Mama book). I’m going to share with you how I made my sausage and my sausage pancakes.

I put my pre-cooked ground turkey into a small skillet. I used a good handful of it, don’t you like my precise measurements? 😉 I added to the turkey a little water, homemade sugar-free brown sugar (Gwen has a great recipe), sage, marjoram and salt and pepper. You could add a few red pepper flakes if you like, but I’m a wimp when it comes to spicy. I cooked it on medium heat until it was heated well while my blender did the work to make my low carb/ low fat pancakes.

 As the sausage finished up I began to heat my griddle on medium heat. I then took my sausage and put it into little piles on the griddle. I only made 3 pancakes because that was the most I could eat. I think I ended up eating a little over 2.

I then poured my batter over the sausage. The edges took on the shape of my sausage pile so it looked more like flowers (if you’re really imaginative).

I want you to know that we are just simple home cooks here and though we like our food photography to look nice, we want to keep it real too. Yes, I have weird looking pancakes, but they taste awesome!

 I had only greased the griddle with a tiny bit of butter (I mean really tiny) and din’t have any issues with them sticking. Often with gluten free and different flours sticking can be a real issue.

 These pancakes were really light and satisfying. What a great way to start the day! What do you do to your pancakes to make them special?
