My kids love sausage and pancakes but making them during the week was out of the question. I purchased the frozen variety on a stick but didn't like the calories, additives or price.

"I came across the recipe for this glaze in a grilling manual but wasn't satisfied with it. I kept the combination of orange marmalade and lime juice and adapted the seasonings to my liking," explains Helen Faddis of Gloucester, Massachusetts. "It's also great on spareribs and chicken."
