40 sausages


  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (Optional)

  • 1 (14 ounce) package Hillshire Farm Lit'l Smokies® Smoked Sausage

  • ½ cup salted pistachios, chopped


  1. Combine maple syrup, brown sugar, mustard, salt and cayenne in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add Lit'l Smokies smoked sausages and bring to a simmer. Heat, stirring occasionally, until sauce is reduced and almost gone, about 15 minutes. Sauce will be thick.

  2. Remove smoked sausages on to a parchment-lined baking sheet and when cool enough to handle, dip in pistachios. Serve warm.

Cook's Tip:

Increase cayenne to 1/2 teaspoon if you like it spicier.
