These little cuties are not only super simple to make but, a great little breakfast dish to make with the kiddies in your life. My girls absolutely love to help me make these for breakfast, especially when they’re sprinkled with powdered sugar and dipped in some warm maple syrup or your favorite fruit preserves. I have used both sweet and spicy Italian sausage to make this dish and it’s always a hit. Sweet and savory is what it’s all about in my household and this breakfast dish is totally where it’s at!!!!
8 sweet or spicy Italian sausage links
1 1/2 cups prepared pancake batter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon brown sugar
4 cups vegetable oil
Preheat oven at 375
Remove casing from sausage and add the sausage meat to a bowl, mix together and roll sausage into meatball sized balls. Put into a 375 degree oven and cook for about 8 mins. Remove and cool for about 10 mins just so they’re cool enough to dip into pancake batter.
Fill a medium pot about half way with veggie oil. Heat veggie oil till your thermometer reads at 350
Make pancake battered as directed ( 2 cups pancake mix to 1 1/2 cups water. Mix in cinnamon and brown sugar. Dip each ball into batter and put into hot oil ( frying only about 4 at a time) Each one should take about 1 to 1 1/2 mins to cook on all sides till golden brown . Remove and place on a paper towel covered plate to drain off excess oil. Dust some powdered sugar and heat up your favorite maple syrup or fruit preserves if desired for dipping.
Cooking time: about 20 mins
