Add Protein To Your Meals With Hillshire Farms! #BringHillshireHome

When I was young, some women in our neighborhood always made sausage corn dogs and sold it to students in our area. What I loved about their sausage corn dogs was that the batter they used isn’t the usual corn dog batter. They used a sweet waffle mix which complemented the salty taste of the sausage so well that we always bugged our parents to buy us some.

For some reason, I can’t find corn dogs like that anymore, so I decided to just make one for myself. It’s really easy to make so any kitchen novice like me can perfect it without needing much practice.

Sausage Waffle


  • For the batter:
    • 2 cups pancake/waffle mix
    • 1 1/3 cup milk
    • 1 egg
    • 2 tbsp oil
    • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 12 pcs Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage Links
  • 12 skewers
  • Karo syrup for glazing
  • Most importantly, a corn dog maker! Because I honestly have no idea how to make these without one!


Ingredients - Hillshire Farms Jimmy Dean


  1. Pre-heat the corn dog maker.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients for the batter in a bowl until you get a smooth consistency.
  3. Insert skewers into sausages.
  4. Pour batter in each corn dog mold until about three quarters full.
  5. Put a sausage in each of the mold and add more batter on top of the sausages.
  6. Close the lid on the corn dog maker and wait for about 5 minutes.
  7. Check the waffles and add more batter or flip as needed.
  8. Place cooked waffles on a plate and pour syrup on them.
  9. Enjoy!

Pretty simple right? You just really have to have a corn dog maker!

This was such a hit at home and I encourage you to try it if you haven’t tasted sausage waffles yet! You can also put hotdogs, cheddar cheese (or any kind of cheese you prefer) instead of sausages.

  7. This is such an awesome recipe. I am going to fix it for my grandson. I think he will really enjoy it. Thanks for the great review and pictures.

  8. I’m going to need to get a corn dog maker, I think my kids would really love these for breakfast… ok so would I. I pinned so I can easily find this recipe. Looks delish!

  9. YUM! These look so delicious. I’ve never had waffle sticks before, but I’ve had pancake sticks and they were amazing. I’m loving the extra protein for breakfast too! A breakfast that is rich in protein always wakes me up and keeps me full until lunch time rolls around 🙂

  10. We make home made corn dogs all the time. I wonder if you can make these without a maker? It seems like it would be the same.

  11. These look delicious. I’ve bought Hillshire Farm for my family for years, we love their products.

  19. I have tried a couple of different bands pre-cooked sausage links. I don’t care for them. I would rather buy the sausage and cook it up myself.

  20. I loved your recipe for Glazed Sausage Waffles on a stick! I don’t have a corn dog maker and I want these Sausage Waffles Bad! They sound oh so Yummy! They don’t sound hard to make as long as you have a machine. Thanks so very much for sharing this with all of us! I truly appreciate it & I want one right now!!!! LOL Thanks, Michele 🙂

  21. You know, this is something I’ve never thought of – and now I don’t know why! It seems so ovious! I do the combination of sweet and savory together, so I know I’ll love this. Pinned & planned, it’s going to taste SO good, I know!

  22. What a great idea, and it looks delicious. I can’t wait to give this a try. Thank you for sharing this recipe post.

    on a stick, that makes it so convenient. Thanks for sharing this.

  24. These look soooo good! And I’ve never heard of them before, how can that be?! I’d love to try these, and I might get addicted asap!

  25. That sounds like a kid friendly meal. I wouldn’t eat it but I do see the appeal to a child. A sweet, fun meal to eat.

  26. I never eat in the morning. We sometimes have a breakfast for dinner day. I like to make breakfast burritos.

  27. these look soo good, I get invited to a brunch, I’d like to make these – and make some batches ahead, too!!! oh boy!

  28. I love this idea! Think it would work as pancakes too. It makes breakfast easier to eat on the go as well.

  29. My husband would be so into trying this. Breakfast foods go together so well like this!

  30. Kids eat the strangest things. It seems like they all love corn dogs, Maybe it’s having the food on a stick. I never could eat those things.
