Pancake-Wrapped Buffalo Sausage with Homemade Syrup
- 2 drops yellow (egg shade) food coloring
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 2/3 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- Tally's Homemade Syrup, recipe follows
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder. Slowly add it to the wet ingredients, a little at a time, stirring gently after each addition. Once all the dry ingredients have been added, stir a few more times to combine, but do not overmix. It's okay to have a few small lumps.
Refrigerate the batter for at least 2 hours, but it's best to let it sit overnight.
Preheat griddle to medium-high.
Spoon about 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake onto the grill. Cook on one side until bubbles appear and the edges are dry, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook on the other side until the bottom is golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove the pancakes to a plate and place in the oven or warmer to keep them warm. Repeat to make 8 pancakes
Place the buffalo sausages on the griddle and cook until no longer pink in the middle, turning as they cook so that they brown evenly, about 3 minutes. If it's cooked too long, buffalo sausage gets very dry.
Place a buffalo sausages on top of each pancakes. Roll the pancake around the sausage. Top with Tally's Homemade Syrup.
