What You Need

  • FOR THE STUFFING:
  • 1 pkg. (13.23 ounces / 375g) Johnsonville Brown Sugar & Honey Flavoured Breakfast Links, casings removed
  • 2 ripe pears, peeled, 1/4 inch dice
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • FOR THE PANCAKES:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ΒΌ tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • pinch of salt
  • FOR THE CINNAMON CREAM:
  • 1 cup 35% cream
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Preparation

  1. Whip the cream with an electric mixer until thickened. Gradually add in remaining ingredients and whisk until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until ready to use. 

  2. Sautee sausage until cooked through, drain on paper towel and remove any excess oil from the pan.    

  3. Using the same pan on medium-high heat, add the butter. When it starts to foam, add the pears and sauté for approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Add the brown sugar and sauté until the sugar caramelizes and the liquid becomes a thick syrup. Add the sausage back to the pan with the water, vinegar and salt and continue to simmer until the liquid is completely reduced. Place in a bowl and set aside for 10 minutes, then drain any residual liquid. 

  4. Combine the dry and wet ingredients separately, then add the wet to the dry and mix to make a lumpy batter (do not overwork). Melt some butter in a large non-stick skillet. Ladle into it ¼ cup of batter, place 2 tbsp of the sausage and pear compote in the center of the pancake and then cover that with more batter. When bubbles start to appear and the edges start to brown flip the pancakes to finish cooking, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat until batter is finished.

  5. Serve with maple syrup and a dollop of cinnamon cream.
