Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 10 sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork sausage or breakfast sausage formed into 2 inch wide patties (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • maple syrup for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat a large non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add the sausage slices, and cook until brown on both sides and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and transfer the sausage patties to a paper towel lines plate to get rid of any excess grease. Cover with foil and set aside.
  • Preheat a griddle over medium heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, sea salt and nutmeg. Whisk to combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk until smooth.
  • Spray the griddle lightly with a non-stick spray. In 1 tablespoon-sized dollops, drop the pancake batter onto the preheated griddle, spacing them evenly apart and making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until large bubbles form. Flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate. Repeat this step for the remaining pancake batter.
  • Form your sandwiches, by sandwiching a sausage patty between two pancakes. Drizzle with real maple syrup and enjoy immediately!

Notes

The pancake sandwiches may be frozen and eaten at a later time. Follow the instructions as is and then wrap the pancake sandwiches very tightly in foil. Place the foiled parcels into a large airtight zipped bag or freezer-safe container. Freeze for up to 3 months. When you are ready to eat, just remove one of the sandwiches from the freezer, and heat in a 400 degree F oven for 15-20 minutes or until the sandwich is warmed through.
