1 1/2 cups vanilla flavored Greek style yogurt
1/4 cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted
1/2 cup sage honey
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
8 2 oz. chicken apple sausage links
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup low-fat milk
1/2 cup sage honey, divided
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups crushed cornflakes


  1. 1
    Preparing Dipping Sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients in a blender or processor and blend until smooth. Reserve chilled.
  2. 2
    Preparing Sausages: Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place sausages in pan and brown evenly on all sides. Remove from pan and blot dry on paper towels, reserve.
  3. 3
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Line large sheet pan with parchment paper.
  4. 4
    In a bowl combine egg, milk, 1/4 cup honey, salt, pepper, and flour. Whisk until well blended. Transfer batter to a shallow dish long enough to dredge sausages. Skewer each sausage lengthwise with skewers, leaving a 3" handle. Pour crushed cornflakes into shallow container or plate. Dredge sausage skewers in batter then coat in crushed cornflakes. Place coated skewers on parchment lined sheet pan. Bake in preheated oven for 7 minutes. Turn sausages and drizzle with remaining honey. Bake for 5 more minutes, remove from oven. Serve sausage skewers with dipping sauce.


Place sausages on 8 - 8" bamboo skewers, if desired.
