Funfetti Pancake Muffins

These couldn't be easier for weekday mornings. It's like a pancake in a muffin cup! Grab and go! Feel free to add additional mix ins like blueberries, chocolate chips, strawberries, or even sausage.


2 c complete pancake mix (I used Funfetti)
2/3 c milk
2 eggs
1/2 c maple syrup
optional mix ins


1. Preheat oven to 350*. Mix all ingredients but mix ins.
2. Fill muffin tin with liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray. 
3. Fill each cup 2/3 way full.
4. After they are full, sprinkle your mix ins on top if you are using. (I didn't use any this time)
5. Bake 15 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cheesy Sausage Quiche

On Fridays at work we all indulge ourselves and order breakfast delivery. The past couple of weeks I have been ordering a slice of their quiche and it is just heavenly. But at 6.99 a slice it certainly is not wallet friendly! I can make a whole pie for less than that at home- so why not try?

Feel free to add whatever veggies/meats you like to your quiche. They are great for breakfast or brunch but you can also have quiche for a quick easy dinner with a side salad!


9 inch frozen pie shell (I used deep dish)
1/2 lb breakfast sausage
1/2 c onion, diced
2 T flour
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 c milk
2 eggs
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375*.
2. Prebake shell for 5-10 mins.
3. Meanwhile, brown sausage and onions. Drain. Add 2 t flour and stir around until flour is cooked. Remove from heat.
4. Beat 2 eggs with milk, add salt and pepper to taste. Remember that the sausage and cheese have a lot of salt in them already.
5. Place sausage in bottom of pie shell. Top with cheese. Pour egg mixture over. Place in oven and bake 30-40 mins until firm. If you did not use a deep dish pie crust, put a baking sheet under incase it overflows.
6. Remove from oven and let cool. Can be served warm or at room temperature.

Goes well with a mimosa!
