Secret Recipe Club, Pancakes & Bacon Cupcakes

My Secret Recipe Club assignment this month is It’s Yummy to My Tummy

That sounds good!

The funny thing is that Heather was assigned my blog last month! You can see what she made from my recipe index here


I am always looking for grabable [you know easy to grab] breakfast type foods for busy mornings or weekends at the beach when everyone is doing their own thing, so her Pancake and Sausage Muffins just spoke to me!

These tempting little pancake muffins have the syrup right inside!


I used maple bacon instead of sausage, and baked it on a parchment lined baking sheet.  So easy, just takes about 20-25  minutes at 350


Mix the Bisquick with eggs and buttermilk or 2 % milk  [she uses soy milk]


Fill paper lined, or well greased muffin cups 2/3 of the way


Add bacon and push down to submerge


Bake for about 20 minutes, or until set in center


Remove from pan


Top with a pat of butter and enjoy!
