Kelly G.’s Pancakes and Sausage ON A STICK!

October 25th, 2011 12:17 pm by Kelly Garbato

Like Jimmy Dean’s Pancakes & Sausage on a stick, but VEGAN! (So only slightly less horrifying than the original.)

The Daily Show, Thursday October 19, 2006
Intro – Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick
Finally, the classic taste of a chocolate chip pancake wrapped around
a sausage with the convenience of a stick.
——————————

You might remember that I promised to veganize this, um, “foodstuff” last mofo, after the husband baked Lightlife Smart Bacon into a batch of blueberry pancakes. He found it an excellent idea, but I couldn’t get past the blueberry-bacon flavor combo. (Ewww!) This year I thought I’d up the ante, and boy did I. But not in a gross way! These baked sausage pancakes are delicious, and surprisingly easy to make. All you need is a batch of pancake batter, eight vegan sausage links and a canoe pan. (Like you’d use to make vegan Twinkies. Which I’ve also done!)

If you don’t have a canoe pan, try a cupcake shape! Probably you’ll need to cut the links in halves or thirds so that they’ll fit – but on the plus size, you’ll have silver dollar-shaped pancakes instead (and more of them, too). It’s a win-win!

Kelly G.’s Pancakes and Sausage ON A STICK!

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
8 vegan breakfast sausage links (I used Lightlife Smart Links)
2 cups Bisquick
1 1/2 cup soy milk
Egg substitute equivalent to two eggs (I used Ener-G Egg Replacer)
1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Cooking spray
Powdered sugar (optional)
Chopsticks, 4 pairs (optional)

Directions

1. In a large skillet, heat two tablespoons of olive oil on medium. Add the sausage links and cook on medium until golden brown. remove from heat and set aside.

2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine the Bisquick, soy milk and egg substitute and mix well. (A whisk might come in handy here!) If desired, toss in a handful – 1/4 cup or so – of chocolate chips.

3. Spray your canoe boat with cooking spray; be careful to get the surface areas as well as the canoe cavities, as the pancakes will puff up when they cook. Carefully pour the pancake batter into each cavity in turn, until each one is just under 3/4 full. Add the links: center each sausage in its cavity and then gently press down with a butter knife (or your fingers) until it’s submerged in pancake batter. If necessary, use the knife to spread the batter around and evenly cover each link in batter. If desired, sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar on top of each pancake sausage.

4. Bake at 425 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the pancakes from the pan immediately.

5. Enjoy warm with a side of maple syrup! If you’re feeling fancy, serve them on a stick: ram a chopstick through each canoe horizontally (they go in surprisingly easy). This is really only practical if you buy them off a street vendor, though; easier to slice them into fifths and eat with a fork. Whole canoe pancakes also make for a fun (but greasy!) finger food.

Optional: Sub in your own favorite pancake recipe in place of the Bisquick-based stuff.

Full disclosure: When all was said and done, we only ended up making one chocolate chip pancake; instead of adding the chips to the batter, I threw a few into a single canoe cavity after I’d poured the batter. If you’re the experimental type, this is an easy way to try out different flavor combos.

FWIW, Shane was a fan of the Chocolate Chip Pancakes and Sausage à la Jimmy Dean and ridiculed by Jon Stewart. To each his own, eh?
