Celebrating National Breakfast Month with Krusteaz + #Giveaway

September is National Breakfast Month. For many families, breakfast is a low priority or not one at all. If you think you are saving time or cutting calories by skipping breakfast, think again! Making a healthy breakfast a part of your morning can get you (and your family) on track to make healthier choices through the day and curb overeating at other meals.

Plus breakfast makes a great dinner for those nights when you just don’t have time or energy to cook a big meal. This is why Krusteaz wants to help you celebrate break.

National Breakfast Month

Disclosure: I received one or more items for free to facilitate this review. However, all opinions and recipe are my own.


Krusteaz began in 1932, with the women of the Seattle bridge club and a great idea they had for an easy-to-make pie crust. Since then, Krusteaz (a clever combination of “crust” and “ease”) has come to stand for home-baked and convenient fresh-from-the-oven goodness.

That spirit of innovation continues with the introduction in the 1940’s of the Krusteaz “just add water” Pancake Mix, a unique concept at the time, and one of the products they’re most known for today. In the 60’s, they spread the word in a way that was as novel as their pancake mix: the Krusteaz Krutesy Kitchen, a fully-equipped “traveling diner” that served up free pancake breakfasts throughout the Northwest.

Over the years their product line has expanded to included biscuits, muffins, brownies, bread, desserts, and now their Protein Pancake Mixes. With 13g of added protein, it’s the perfect way to keep your family full and energized all day long.

Mini  Pancakes and Sausage

Just like Krusteaz, I am always trying to find new ways to spice up meals that are easy. So recently I started playing around with pancake mixes and sausage and hit upon this idea to make pancakes on the go. These mini pancakes with sausage in the middle are a great grab and go breakfast. plus with syrup mixed into the batter, there is no need to worry about sticky messes.

Maple Syrup

Fully cooked sausage links


Preheat oven to 350. Mix pancake batter according to the box. Stir in syrup. For the 4-5 servicing size, I used a 1/2 cup of syrup. This can be adjusted to a larger serving size or if you want a sweeter batter.

Mix pancake batter according to the box.

Stir in syrup. (For the 4-5 servicing size, I used a 1/2 cup of syrup. This can be adjusted to a larger serving size or if you want a sweeter batter. )

In a greased mini muffin pan spoon in batter.

Cut link sausages into three pieces and place one piece in the middle of the batter.  Repeat till all muffins have a piece of sausage in them.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until batter is cooked through.

Serve with fruit or grab and go.

  1. I’ve been trying to get across to my kids that breakfast is so important. We love anything with protein. We haven’t had Krusteaz in forever..but these sound so good we might have to pick them up.

  2. Pancakes used to be a staple in our home when my son was growing up. It was his breakfast, and sometimes dinner of choice. But, I cannot eat them so stick to my diet of no grains and generally have bullet proof coffee or a flax muffin.

  3. I usually just make eggs. On special days my husband makes his breakfast potatoes as a special treat. They’re so yummy! I didn’t even know National Breakfast Month was a thing. I’m gonna tell the hubs he must make his special breakfast potatoes to celebrate! 😉

  4. I do love a lot of muffins but my favorite breakfast would be the big country breakfast. Which is a sausage patty, 2 bacon,2 scrambled eggs,2 biscuits with country gravy. Yeah, it’s a lot. I haven’t had it in years due to health but I still love it.

  5. This time of the year we love pancakes made with wild blueberries. I freeze some to use the rest of the year but it is just not the same,

  6. Waffles!! They’re so good and everyone can customize them to their own liking. My daughter puts choclate chips and powdered sugar on hers. I put some fresh fruit and whipped cream on mine. And my son likes butter and syrup on his.

I enjoy hearing your thoughts so please Leave a Reply
