Breakfast dippers?

My daughter loves those breakfast sausage wrapped in pancake on a stick things (like corndogs) you can get in the freezer section at the store. The problem?
(a) I rarely trust the ingredients in pre-processed foods.
(b) We're poor.

I've tried twice now, but can't seem to get my pancake batter to stick to the sausage to deep fry them, and I would really like to make a huge batch of these for the freezer for her in the mornings. Can anyone help?

I read that you can 1/8 teaspoon of salt or cinnamon in your cheap coffee. Take the bad taste away. I try it does works.

Here's an easy and tasty meal that I like to fall back on....I run to Costco, get a bag of their frozen meatballs and a jar of their mango salsa (in the deli section). I put some meatballs in a crockpot and pour some of the mango salsa over the meatballs and cook for a couple of hours, or until hot. I serve this over rice, maybe add a green salad or fruit salad and egg rolls. Soooo simple and good! I also serve these as appetizers for parties. Plus the leftover frozen meatballs can be used for so many other dishes....
