DIFFICULTY
Difficult
  • 12 Farmer John Original Sausage Links
  • 1 ½ cup flour plus two tablespoons for dusting
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 wooden skewers
  • 2 quarts peanut oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  1. In a large bowl, mix 1 ½ cups flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt
  2. Whisk buttermilk, egg and vegetable oil in a large measuring cup; pour into dry ingredients. Stir until just incorporated. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes while you cook the sausage links
  3. Cook sausages in a skillet over medium-high heat, turning often, until fully cooked through and all sides are browned. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and pat dry
  4. When sausages are cool enough to handle, place remaining 2 tablespoons flour in a shallow dish. Skewer each sausage lengthwise with a wooden stick, coat in flour, and tap to remove excess.
  5. Heat a few inches of peanut oil to 375 °F in a heavy-bottomed pot fitted with an oil thermometer.
  6. Transfer batter to a tall glass. Dip skewered sausages in batter, coating the sausage fully but not the stick. Carefully place into the hot oil and fry 3 at a time until golden, about 2-3 minutes per side. Drain on a wire rack.
