Sausage Oven Pancake Square

This has a weird name, but it tastes really good. It's simple to make and is like a breakfast sandwich with all the flavors of pancakes, sausage and maple syrup in one bite.

Sausage Oven Pancake Square
12 oz. bulk pork sausage
1 cup shredded cheese
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 cup maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Brown sausage over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels. In ungreased 9-inch pan, spread sausage and sprinkle with cheese.

In large bowl, beat egg, milk, 2 Tbsp. maple syrup and oil until well blended. Beat in flour, baking powder and salt. Pour batter evenly into pan.

Bake uncovered 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve topped with remaining maple syrup. Serves 6.
