My son recently fell in love with a breakfast item served at his school – Sausage Pancake Corn Dogs. He was so eager for me to recreate them that he sweetly requested we have them for dinner. Of course, I couldn’t say no to my precious little one, so I embarked on a mission to make his dream come true.
To start, I cooked a package of sausage links. You can either use a skillet or an air fryer for this step. Personally, I recommend the air fryer. It’s incredibly easy – just set it to 390 degrees Fahrenheit and let the sausages cook for about 10 to 12 minutes. No mess, no oil splatter, and each link turns out perfectly cooked. Don’t forget to give the basket a few shakes throughout for even cooking.
While the sausages cool, prepare the pancake batter. Grab your favorite dry pancake mix that only requires water. In a bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of the mix with 2/3 cup of water. Stir until you achieve a smooth consistency.
Once the sausages have cooled down a bit, it’s time to turn them into corn dogs! Take a corn dog stick and pierce it through the center of each sausage link. Simple, right?
Now, grab a skillet and fill it with vegetable oil, making sure it’s a few inches deep. Heat the oil over medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While waiting for the oil to heat up, start coating the corn dogs with the pancake batter. I find that using a spoon helps achieve an even coating.
Carefully place 3 or 4 breakfast dogs into the hot oil. Keep a close eye on them because they cook quickly – it usually takes just a minute or two. Flip them halfway through to ensure an even golden brown color. Once they’re perfectly cooked, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Repeat the frying process until all the breakfast dogs are done.
Now comes the best part – serving and enjoying! I highly recommend dusting these delectable sausage pancake corn dogs with powdered sugar and drizzling them with maple syrup. The combination of sweet and savory flavors is simply irresistible!
I can assure you, the whole family will gather around the table with smiles on their faces, eager to devour this fun and tasty meal. Trust me, it’s a guaranteed winner!
