Easy Street Cafe's awesome Pig Sticks are so much better than they sound. They're basically links of breakfast sausage dipped in cinnamony pancake batter and deep-fried.

My three-year-old's adorable mispronunciation of the Christmas carol line "bring us some figgy pudding" as "piggy pudding" has me craving Easy Street Cafe's awesome Pig Sticks this morning. I first ordered them because of the amusing name, but these sweet and savory treats are so much better than they sound. Basically, they're links of breakfast sausage dipped in cinnamony pancake batter and deep-fried--so, the a.m. version of corndogs. They're sprinkled in powdered sugar and come with a bowl of maple syrup for dipping. An order of three costs $4, and works great as a brunch appetizer for the table.
