This Loaded Pancake Recipe Is…

  • Loaded savoury pancakes
  • Crispy pancakes
  • Easy to Make
  • Protein Pancake
  • Delicious

Ingredients Needed

Water, pancake mix, sausage, cheese, and scrambled eggs on a countertop.
  • Pancake Mix – You can use whatever pancake mix you enjoy using. You will need water to go along with the mix. I used Krusteaz Complete mix for this recipe.
  • Breakfast Sausage – You will cook up the sausage as directed and then drain off the excess grease. This is a step you should not skip.
  • Eggs – Mix up your favorite scrambled eggs, and this will be mixed into the pancakes for an excellent protein packed ingredient.
  • Cheddar Cheese – So I used cheddar cheese, but you can easily swap with other varieties of cheese if you want.
  • Syrup – So I like to drizzle syrup on top for a sweet take to the savory. But another option is a country style gravy if you would prefer.

  1. Step One: Start by mixing up your pancake mix batter in a large bowl. Mix until the wet ingredients are smooth and the clumps are removed. (Photo 1)
  2. Step Two: Then, you will stir in the crumbled sausage, scrambled eggs, and shredded cheese. Mix to combine. (Photos 2 & 3)
  3. Step Three: Heat your griddle and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Then pour 1/2 cup of the pancake batter into the skillet.
  4. Step Four: Once the batter has cooked for about 2 minutes and you see bubbles form and begin to pop, you will flip. (Photo 4)
  5. Step Five: Cook another 2 minutes or so, or until the pancake mixture is fully cooked. (Photo 5)

Variations To Recipe

  • Use a cast iron skillet for a crispy texture instead of a frying pan.
  • Use egg whites instead of an entire egg when making the scrambled eggs
  • Swap the sausage with cooked bacon or even chorizo.
  • Add in some dark chocolate chips for a sweet twist to the pancake.
  • Swap out the cheddar with another variety of cheese. Pepper jack cheese adds a nice kick to the pancakes.

Common Questions Asked

What can I add to my pancake mix?

If you use boxed pancake mix, you have many ways to dress up the flavor. As you can see, with this loaded version, I added sausage, eggs, cheese, and more. You can also add lemon juice, vanilla extract, and more to really dress up the flavor to sweeten it up.

How to store leftover pancakes?

You will need to store these pancakes in the fridge for 3-4 days. Then to reheat, you can warm up in a skillet on the stove over low heat or warm it up in the microwave. These will take a bit to heat through since they are thicker pancakes.
