Pigs In A Blanket

16 savory breakfast links 
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk, plus 1 tablespoon, shaken
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

Butter For Skillet
Skewers

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. In a cast iron skillet, add a teaspoon of olive oil and heat over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the breakfast links and cook until both sides are golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Place the links on a parchment lined baking sheet and transfer it to the oven.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a large measuring cup or a medium bowl, measure out the buttermilk. Add the egg and melted butter; mix until thoroughly combined. In one batch, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until barely combined. 

3. Preheat your skillet over medium heat. Brush the skillet with a tablespoons of butter. Add a heaping tablespoon of batter to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on first side. When small bubbles begin to form, flip on other side to cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Transfer to the oven to keep warm. Repeat the process until you have cooked your way through all of the batter.  

4. To assemble, lay a sausage in the center of a pancake and fold, placing the skewer at the point in which the pancake overlaps.
