Yield: 6 servings


  • All purpose flour: 1 1/2 Cups
  • Kosher salt: 1 Teaspoons
  • Freshly ground black pepper: 2 Pinches

  • Milk: 1 1/2 Cups
  • Melted butter: 2 Tablespoons
  • Vegetable oil: 1 Tablespoons

  • =Instructions=

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour with the salt and a pinch of pepper. Make a well in the center of the flour. Pour in the eggs, milk, and melted butter into the well and whisk into the flour until smooth. Cover and let stand 30 minutes.
Coat the bottom and sides of an 8×12 or 9×9 casserole dish with vegetable oil. Place a rack in the bottom third of the oven. Put the empty dish on the rack. Preheat the oven with the dish in it to 425ºF.
While the oven is coming to temperature, heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet on medium high. Add the sausages and brown them on at least a couple sides.
When the sausages have browned, and the dish in the oven hot, pull the oven rack out a bit, put the sausages in the casserole dish, and pour the batter over the sausages. Cook for about 20-30 minutes or until the batter is risen and golden.
