Even if you can’t make your way to a tropical location, you can enjoy the flavors of vacation right from home with this easy sheet pan recipe.

How to make this Hawaiian sheet pan pancake your own:
- You can make this recipe with any cooked breakfast meat you have on hand. For example, you can add a handful of cooked, crumbled bacon or sausage with your ham, or you can skip the ham and use a breakfast meat of your choice instead.
- Because you add the pineapple and ham on top (and night right into the batter), you can decide how much to add. This makes it really easy to customize these sheet pan pancakes by adding more or fewer toppings to one half, etc.
- If you want to cut some of the sugar, you can reduce the amount of granulated sugar by about half, and use a lower-sugar ham.
- If you want to sweeten this recipe, use a honey ham and add a maple syrup or glaze on top and serve with more fresh pineapple.
Make Ahead Ideas
This recipe comes together in only 10 minutes, but you can also do some recipe prep the night before to get these pancakes into the oven really quickly in the morning. Simply combine the dry ingredients the night before and set aside, and then chop your ham and pineapple and set in the fridge the night before.
Store leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
To reheat, place pancake squares in the oven at 350 until heated through (should only take about 5 minutes!) or reheat on a pan on the stovetop. If you don’t mind sacrificing the texture a bit, you can reheat leftovers in the microwave, checking every 10-15 seconds.
