  • Deep pot
  • Bowls
  • Tongs
  • Bamboo skewers or popsicle sticks
  • Plate
  • Paper towels


  • Pancake batter - Use your favorite pancake batter or my classic American pancakes recipe
  • 16 Breakfast sausages - I like the Farmer John or Jimmy Dean brand but you can use whatever brand of breakfast sausage that you like.
  • Oil for frying - Use vegetable canola, coconut, shortening, etc.
  • Maple syrup optional
  • Powdered sugar optional


  • Place a skillet on a burner and set the heat to medium (350 F/176C). You can use an electric griddle as well. No need to add any oil to the pan. Cook the sausages until they are nice and brown. It will take 5 to 10 minutes. Just so there is no pink on the inside.
  • Take a large deep pot and add an inch to an inch and a half deep of oil to it. Set the burner to medium and allow the oil to heat up to (350 F/176 C)
  • Once the sausages are all cooked you can remove them from the heat and place them on paper towels. Dry them really well to soak up the extra grease.
  • Then once they have cooled a bit, you can use clean hands and stick them with a bamboo skewer or popsicle stick. You may need to trim the bamboo skewers in half.
  • Use your favorite homemade pancake batter or a standard store-bought pancake mix or use this pancake recipe of mine.
    Then just follow the instructions for whatever recipe you want to use.
  • Dip the sausage on a stick into the pancake batter. You can leave it in the bowl, or pour some batter into a tall glass.
  • After you dip the dog in the pancake batter gently place it in the hot oil. Don't overcrowd them. These cook really fast, it only takes a minute or two for them to get golden brown. Turn as needed with tongs so they brown evenly. Once golden brown, remove them and place them on a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Now you can dust them with powdered sugar if you like, dip them in maple syrup, or some sort of fruit sauce, and eat them! Enjoy!



NoteA typical pancake batter recipe will make way too much batter for 8 to 16 breakfast corn dogs, so you can just make regular pancakes with the leftovers or just half the recipe or use a quarter of the recipe, depending on how many you want to make.
