Savory Baked Pancake Squares

This creative, savory recipe is reminiscent of a quiche or tart filling, but sturdier and easy to portion out or take on-the-go.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 bag (8 ounces or a generous 1 1/2 cups) Essential Goodness Super Grain Pancake Mix
  2. 2 tablespoons melted butter or oil
  3. 1 cup milk
  4. 1 large egg
  5. 1/2 cup (4 ounces) cooked, crumbled sausage (or ham or bacon)
  6. Up to 1 cup of sautéed vegetables (like onion, mushroom, or roasted peppers)
  7. 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9" x 9" pan.
  2. Combine the mix, melted butter or oil, milk, and egg, stirring until nearly smooth. Allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes to thicken.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it to the edges of the pan and smoothing it out.
  4. Sprinkle your choice of toppings (meat, vegetables, cheese) over the batter.
  5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the center springs back when gently pressed and the edges are starting to brown.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven. Cut into squares and serve warm.

Yield: 8 to 12 servings
