Hungry Jack Use Up the Box Giveaway

I usually make my own pancakes and waffles, but when I’m out of town or camping I always buy a mix. What seems to happen with my mixes is that I’m usually left with a little bit left at the end that doesn’t make enough pancakes for my family. I usually make potato pancakes with my leftover mix, but last week Hungry Jack challenged me to use up the box.

These breakfast sandwiches were a hit with my kids. You should be able to freeze these for a quick breakfast or lunch on those busy days.



  • 3/4 cup Hungry Jack® Complete Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Hungry Jack® Original Syrup
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 (3-inch round) sausage patties*
  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray


  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1/3 cup diced red pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt



  • HEAT griddle or skillet on medium heat (350°F.)
  • WHISK pancake mix, water and syrup in medium bowl. Stir in cheese, potatoes and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook sausage patties as directed on package.
  • COAT griddle or skillet with no-stick cooking spray. Pour 2 tablespoons batter on griddle, spreading batter to make a 3-inch circle or by using 3-inch pancake molds, coated with no-stick cooking spray.
  • Repeat to make 7 more pancakes. Cook 2 minutes or until golden brown. Turn. Cook second side 2 minutes.


  • MELT butter in large skillet. Add red pepper. Cook and stir about 1 minute. Whisk eggs and salt in small bowl. Pour into skillet with peppers. Cook slightly, then shape into four 3-inch circles about the same size as the pancakes and sausage.
  • PLACE one pancake on plate. Top with egg, cooked sausage patty and another pancake to make breakfast sandwich. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 3 more sandwiches.

    Pancakes are ALWAYS a good dinner choice! Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  35. I’m thinking I might need to make pancakes in the morning! I almost always make them from scratch (I use my grandma’s recipe) but having a pancake mix on hand is always nice when I need to make something quick.

  36. Sounds like an interesting recipe. Not sure my kids would go for the sandwich, but they’d love it in its component pieces. I almost always cook from scratch, but the mixes can be very handy for those post-trip, haven’t had time to hit the grocery store yet mornings.

  37. wow what a great ideal for a breakfast sandwich

  38. Sounds really good, like a McGriddle, only with hashbrowns. I use leftover meat and veggies and the instant mashed potatoes with cheese, and have shepherd’s pie in less than 30 minutes.

  39. Marsha Hinton says:

    I love to mix it up once in awhile and make Hungry Jack pancakes for supper.

  40. Hungry Jack Pancake Mix is amazing 🙂
