My little chef loves the idea of having breakfast throughout the day. We started this 3 part series to share Breakfast, Brunch and Brinner (breakfast for dinner) ideas for kids who love breakfast foods as much as we do. Our first recipe was Breakfast in a Jar, a fun grab-n-go idea for breakfast. For brunch, we tried this simple, kid-friendly recipe for Sausage Popovers.
I recently spoke to a group of moms who shared that they love the idea of cooking with their kids but often struggled to find ideas beyond pizza and cakes. My little chef and I love to find and share different recipe ideas that are simple and fun for kids to cook at home. I was even surprised at how easy the Sausage Popovers were to make and so will you. Plus, kids get a kick out of watching the popovers poof up in the oven.
To make popovers, you only need a simple muffin pan plus everyday ingredients like milk, eggs, and flour. Popovers are can be made either sweet or savory and topped with your favorite jams, fruit or cheese. We added Johnsonville fully cooked breakfast turkey sausage to the recipe to give it a hearty, rich flavor.
To add more sausage goodness, warm the remaining bits of turkey sausage in a microwave or stovetop and add it to the center. You can also serve with your favorite fruit preserves, honey or syrup. We paired it with a great fruit salad for a delicious mid-day brunch treat.
