Oatmeal Pancakes and Maple Sage Sausage
Another Sunday gaming session, another delicious brunch experiment. Today, I made Maple Sage Sausage at home, with a recipe from the Chicago Tribune. The sausage was totally delicious and received rave reviews from all present. Even Adan, who usually abhors sausage, consumed a great deal of it. I will definitely be cooking homemade sausage again.
To go with the sausage, I also made Oatmeal Pancakes from The Breakfast Book by Marion Cunningham.
2 cups buttermilk
2/3 cup oatmeal
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
The night before you plan on making these pancakes, combine the buttermilk and oats, and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, beat the egg and the brown sugar until well combined. Add the flours, baking soda, salt, vegetable oil, and the oatmeal buttermilk mixture, then stir well until combined thoroughly.
Cook on a lightly-oiled griddle or skillet until lightly browned on each side. Enjoy!
