Cooking the Pork Sausage Links

Firstly, take 4 pork sausage links and cook them in a skillet over medium heat. Keep turning the links often until they attain a nice golden-brown exterior, which should take around 10-15 minutes. After the sausages are done, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any excess oil.

Preparing the Coffee Cake

While the pork sausage links are cooking, take out your prepared coffee cake and slice it into thin rectangular pieces.

Building Your Morning Coffee Appetizer

Take each slice of coffee cake and cut it down the center, creating two separate pieces. Then place one cooked pork sausage link on each slice of coffee cake. You can secure both together with a toothpick if you want.

Adding Sour Cream Topping

Now, on top of each pork sausage link, add a dollop of sour cream. You can adjust the amount of sour cream according to your preference.
