Caramel Apple Ring Pancakes

Caramel Apple Ring Pancakes

Sliced Apple Pancakes – apple rings are dipped in pancake batter and then cooked until golden brown for a sweet breakfast treat. 

Something about fall means cozy weekend mornings at home.  Hanging out in our pajamas and just being lazy.  But those weekend mornings aren’t complete without a delicious and comforting breakfast.  Now if only I could find a way for the breakfast to just appear and the clean up to magically be done.  Then lazy weekends would be complete.

Sliced Apple Pancakes - apple rings are dipped in pancake batter and then cooked until golden brown for a sweet breakfast treat.

Pancakes are one of my favorite things to have for breakfast.  Super light and fluffy pancakes topped with maple syrup can be hard to beat.  But there is one problem.  They don’t always fill you up.  So today we are fixing that.  We are taking apple slices and turning them into pancakes!  You still get light and fluffy pancakes, but you get a sweet crisp apple in the middle.  A fun little twist with all the apples that are in season right now.

Sliced Apple Pancakes - apple rings are dipped in pancake batter and then cooked until golden brown for a sweet breakfast treat.

Apple pancakes are super easy to make. You can use whatever your favorite pancake recipe is.  I used a box mix for these.  You just dip the thinly sliced apples in the prepared pancake batter, and place in a hot skillet.  The pancakes cook up and the apple inside stays a little crispy.  Top with warm maple syrup for a breakfast everyone will love!

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cups turkey, cubed
  • 1 (10 3/4 oz) can Golden Mushroom soup
  • 1 cups frozen mixed veggies
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 egg, well beaten

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 4 cups of a large muffin tin with nonstick baking spray. Set aside. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and garlic and cook for 1 minute, until softened. Add cubed turkey, mushroom soup, mixed veggies, and milk. Stir together until well mixed, then remove from heat. Set aside. Slice one of the pie crusts into four quarters. Press one each of the four quarters of pie crust into the prepared muffin tin, molding as needed to completely cover the bottom of the tin. Spoon the turkey mixture evenly into each of the four pie-crust lined muffin cups. Cut four, 4-inch rounds from the second pie crust. Press each round over the filling in each of the muffin crusts. Use a basting brush to coat the top of each pie crust with beaten egg. Transfer to oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until edges of the crust are golden brown. Remove and allow to cool slightly before removing from muffin tin and serving.
