Game Day Eats

Here at Isernio’s HQ in Seattle we’re all pretty excited to watch the Seahawks beat Da Bears this Sunday!  Don’t know about you, but to us it’s just not football without something good to munch on!  An informal poll today in the Isernio’s office and production plant reveals some of our team members’ favorite game day eats (besides sausage, of course):

Frank:  “Barbeque or something greasy!”
Curtis: “Pizza, chips and beer”
Jennifer: “Potato chips with my family’s special sour cream dip recipe using marjoram and chopped green olives”  (hmmm….not so sure about that one Jen 🙂 )
Tony: “Hot Wings”
Julio: “Hummus and Spicy Chips”
Ron: “Fried Shrimp”
Ken: “Chips & Salsa or Nachos”
Mike: “Brats, Meatballs, 7-layer Dip, Nachos, Shrimp Cocktail, Cheese Fondue”  (Mike likes to do it right!)

How about you??  What’s on the table this weekend while you watch the game?

If you’re looking for some fun sausage recipes to use, check out our “Super Roll” recipes from last year, all using our chicken sausage rolls

Frank was thrilled to be asked to appear yesterday on Seattle television station KING and their daytime talk show New Day NorthwestWith it being the new year and everyone making resolutions to eat healthier, it was great timing for Frank to show the audience and host Margaret Larson how to make a tasty rigatoni dish using our chicken sausage – this recipe is not only delicious (the smells in the TV studio were heavenly), but it’s super easy to make (the hardest part is waiting 25 minutes for the sauce to simmer without digging in!) and using our 95% lean chicken sausage rolls in this recipe makes it guilt-free.

Our favorite part came actually after the taping was over:  One member of the audience asked if Frank drained the sausage before adding it to the sauce.  He showed her the pan in which the sausage had been cooked – there was almost NO fat in the pan to drain.  There were literally “oohs” and “ahhs” coming from the audience.  You have to love it when sausage can elicit such a lively reaction!
