  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh pork sausage links
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
For the Batter:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and have ready both a rimmed sheet pan lined with nonstick aluminum foil and a well-greased, 24-cup mini muffin tin.

  2. Place sausage links on rimmed sheet pan and bake for 7 minutes. Pull out the pan, give a gentle shake to move the sausages a bit, and return to the oven for an additional 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

  3. Increase the oven temperature to 400°.

  4. While the sausages are cooling, make the pancake batter, in a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  5. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until foamy. Whisk in the milk, canola oil, and butter. Add the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Do not over-stir. Set aside.

  6. Fill mini muffin tins about 2/3's of the way full. Cut the breakfast sausage links into thirds, and insert a piece in the center of each muffin cavity. You will have leftover sausage.

  7. Bake at 400° for 12-14 minutes, or until puffed and golden.

  8.  Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Serve with maple syrup and enjoy.
