Italian Sausage Lollipops
1 package (19 ounces) Johnsonville Hot Italian Sausage Links
1 cup cornmeal
Remoulade Dipping Sauce
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
Cook sausages according to package directions. Allow to cool slightly and cut each sausage into 4 pieces. In a medium bowl, mix all dry ingredients for the corn batter then mix in wet ingredients. Pour oil 2 to 3 inches deep and bring to medium heat or about 350 F. Place one sausage piece on the end of each skewer. Dip into the batter and coat the sausage completely. Carefully submerge the sausage into the hot oil while holding the end of the stick. Fry each sausage for about 1 minute, until the batter is a deep golden brown. Serve with Remoulade Dipping Sauce or your favorite mustard. Yield: 20 lollipops.

Combine all ingredients except oil in a food processor and process for 30 seconds. With the motor running, slowly add the oil through the feed tube and process until thickened. Transfer the sauce to a bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
