Breakfast dippers?

By 'Ria Murphy - Aug 16, 2014

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?

Buon Natale! Felice Anno Nuovo!

Hi I'm happy to see that in lean times you can still make meals that taste good.Sometimes I need a little help to make things come together..

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....
