This is what happens when fluffy pancake blankets get cozy with a few sausage links and they go for a dip in a warm maple syrup bath. Good things happen, friends, very good things. First off, let me apologize for not posting a recipe last week! I am so sorry I’ve been slacking! Valentine’s Day came and went, (I’m still not engaged FYI) and life is suddenly crazy busy with a bunch of little things! And I feel like they just keep coming! The good news is, while I haven’t been blogging, I have been accomplishing things for Karlie and Oats!
One cool thing is that there are officially business cards floating around the Denver Metro area with my name on them! I’ve been handing those things out like candy. Another thing I did was filed my taxes! Why is that significant, you ask? Well, with my tax refund I plan to revamp the blog! I’ve got a redesign planned, I’m working on getting a new camera, self-hosting talk is being thrown around…? AH! I am nervous…but stinkin’ excited, too. Keep checking back! BIG THINGS AHEAD!
Meanwhile, back to this sticky, syrupy yumminess. This little breakfast nugget is atop the high dive, suspended above a warm and sticky bowl of syrup. It looks like he is ready to take the plunge. These little bites are so easy to make. Get out the sausage links, pull the pancake mix from the pantry, heat up a little oil, and put some syrup in a bowl. Cut, poke, dip, fry, and DUNK! Then you’re dunzo!
Mini Pancake and Sausage Breakfast Bites
- box of pancake mix
- box of fully cooked sausage links (8 links)
- oil (for frying)
- syrup for dipping
- skewers or chopsticks
What to do:
- Empty about 1 1/2 – 2 cups of dry pancake mix into a medium-sized bowl.
- Add small amounts of water to pancake mix and whisk together until mix has no lumps, just enough to thin it out slightly. Set aside.
- Heat oil on stove in deep pan. (I used a pot and filled it 3 inches or so with oil.)
- If sausage links are frozen, place in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
- Cut each sausage link in half (you should have 16 halves).
- Press chopstick or skewer into one end of sausage link and dip sausage in pancake batter, coating evenly.
- Quickly submerge your pancake-batter-covered-sausage-on-a-stick into the hot oil, frying for a minute or two, or until it is browned, and transfer to a paper towel covered plate. (If the oil is too hot, your outer shell will seem to burn before the inside batter is cooked.)
- Repeat process with each little chunk of sausage.
- Serve all those mini bites alongside warm maple syrup for dunking.
