Breakfast Corn Dogs

My husband’s favorite breakfast food is breakfast corn dogs.  I know, so random.  Haha!  I thought I would surprise him and make some for him rather than the ones you buy in the frozen section of the grocery store.  They were so easy to make and tasted amazing!  They had a nice crispy edge, with fluffy blueberry pancake surrounding the sausage.  They were even better when we dipped them in maple syrup!

Serves: 16

  • 16 breakfast sausage links
  • 16 bamboo skewers
  • 3 cups bluberry pancake mix
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups water
  • Canola oil, for frying
  • Warm maple syrup, for serving


  1. Cook sausage in a frying pan over medium-high heat until cooked through.
  2. Pat cooked sausage with paper towels to absorb excess grease and insert a bamboo skewer into each sausage; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine pancake mix, cornmeal, and cinnamon.
  4. Add egg, vanilla and water, adding more water as needed for the batter to become slightly thick. Start out by adding 1 cup, then work your way up to 3 cups.
  5. Heat some canola oil in a large pot over medium-high heat to about 350 degrees F.
  6. Dip each sausage into batter and allow excess to drip off for a few seconds.
  7. Carefully drop each battered sausage into oil and use tongs to turn each corndog to ensure even browning.
  8. Remove corndogs from oil when the outside is golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Serve with warm maple syrup for dipping.

    I found that 3 cups of water made the batter very thin and did not coat the sausage well enough. The batter cooked right off when fried. I remade the recipe with only 1 cup of water to get the thick consistency needed to stick, and it worked quite well! The family loved them!
