  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise homemade or store-bought
  • 6 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha more or less to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • 5 pounds Italian sausages sweet, mild or hot, cut into fourths (I use Premio brand at Costco)
  • 1 bottle chardonnay wine



  • Meanwhile whisk together the mayo, mustard, sriracha, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.


  • Place the quartered sausages into a large pot and pour in the whole bottle of chardonnay. Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 40 minutes or until fully cooked. Stir the sausages occasionally to keep them from sticking.
  • Once the sausage bites are fully cooked, remove and place them onto a rimmed metal baking sheet that is lined with aluminum foil.
  • Arrange your oven rack so it is 4-inches below the broiler, and preheat your oven to broil (on high).
  • Slide the pan of sausage bites underneath the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, rotating the pan at 1½ minutes or until all are evenly browned on top. Remove the pan and carefully turn each sausage bite before sliding the pan back under your broiler for another 2 to 3 minutes, again, rotating the pan at the 1½ minute mark to ensure even browning.
  • Remove and let cool slightly before transferring the sausage bites to a clean platter.
  • Serve with the spicy mustard dip and toothpicks!


Keep in mind, the nutritional value is figuring a whole bottle of wine which is used to poach the sausage. You aren't actually consuming the bottle.
