Sausage Pancake Corn Dogs were made at the request of my son.
I guess his school serves something similar for breakfast and he reeeeaaaally wanted me to try and recreate them.
BUT he insisted (nicely) that we have them as breakfast for dinner.
This kid has my whole heart, so you know I had to make it happen.
A side of hash browns and scrambled eggs along with these breakfast dogs was our complete, fun meal.
How to Make Sausage Pancake Corn Dogs
The first step is cooking a package of sausage links.
You could make them in a skillet or the air fryer.
SO easy in the air fryer at 390 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
No dirty pan, no oil splatter, and each one is perfectly cooked.
Just shake the basket a few times throughout.
While the sausage cools, prepare the pancake batter.
Add 1 1/2 cups dry pancake batter with 2/3 cup water.
Make sure you have the kind of pancake mix that only requires water.
When the sausage is cooled, put them on corn dog sticks.
I held the sausage in one hand and twisted the corn dog stick through the center.
Fill a skillet a few inches deep with vegetable oil and set it over medium heat.
Once the oil hits 350 degrees, batter 3 or 4 breakfast dogs.
I used a spoon to get them evenly coated.
Gently place them in the oil.
And watch carefully because they only take a minute or two to cook, flipping them halfway through.
Remove them when they are perfect golden brown and place on a plate lined with paper towels.
Then repeat frying the rest of the breakfast dogs.
Serve Sausage Pancake Corn Dogs with powdered sugar and maple syrup 🙂
As you can imagine, I had quite the happy crew for our fun breakfast for dinner meal.

Sausage Pancake Corn Dogs
Sausage Pancake Corn Dogs start with cooked sausage links on a stick and dipped in pancake batter, then deep fried and served with syrup
- 14 breakfast sausage links
- 14 corn dog sticks
- 1 1/2 cups dry pancake mix (use a mix that only requires water)
- 2/3 cup water
- vegetable oil (enough to fill a pan a few inches deep)
- Optional: powdered sugar, maple syrup
Cook the sausage links in a skillet over medium low heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Or cook them in the air fryer set to 390 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, shaking the basket a few times throughout. Once the sausage is cooled, put them onto the corn dog sticks.
Note: I had the best luck holding the sausage link and twisting the corn dog stick through the center.
Put the dry pancake batter in a bowl and add the water, whisk until combined. The batter will be slightly thicker than if you were making pancakes.
Fill a skillet a few inches deep with vegetable oil and set over medium heat.
When the oil reaches 350 degrees, coat 3 or 4 sausages with the pancake batter (I used a spoon to help coat them) and gently lay them in the oil. They will cook for about a minute or two, flip them halfway through.
Put the cooked breakfast dogs on a plate lined with paper towels and repeat frying the remaining breakfast dogs.
Serve with powdered sugar and/or maple syrup if desired.
