If you missed Len Caric, the president of Uncle Charley’s Sausage, on Pittsburgh Today Live, don’t worry– we have all the featured recipes from his appearance here! We also realized these tasty treats make a perfect menu for the holidays, so we put together a game plan for your celebrations.
No matter which holidays you celebrate (or don’t) this season, these scrumptious recipes are sure to please your friends and family. So give the best gift of all this time of year– fresh, delicious, homemade food, made with the best quality ingredients.
To get into the holiday spirit
Perfect for the days leading up to any main events, these Brie and Cranberry Sausage Sliders are not only festive, but one of the more tasty things you’ll make. A savory breakfast patty pairs wonderfully with sweet yet tangy cranberry sauce and creamy brie cheese. While you can garnish these sliders with rosemary for a cute Christmas tree look, they are great without it too for any holiday.
To make ahead for the morning of the big day
Breakfast, especially on Christmas morning, can be a bit hectic. With all the running around, excitement, and sleep deprivation, ease any possible headaches with this Easy Sausage Breakfast Strata, a hearty combination of eggs, cheese, sausage, and bread. Make it the night before and, after a quick pop in the oven, you’ll have a warm morning meal fit for the whole family.
To snack on while you socialize
The best part of the holidays is catching up with all the loved ones you don’t get a chance to see the rest of the year. Keep your snacks portable and easy-to-hold while you work the room with these Sausage Caprese Salad Skewers — or Sausage “Pizza” Appetizers as we called them on the show. Super simple and quick to put together, especially if you pre-cook the sausage, have the ingredients on hand for any last-minute guests that stop by. Sure to impress!
To treat surprise guests
Speaking of last-minute guests– these Chili and Honey Sausage Bites are only four ingredients, so you can throw them together with ease when you need a supplement to your scheduled menu. Spicy and sweet, the distinctive spice combination from our Italian Sausage pairs wonderfully with honey and chili sauce.
To impress your dinner guests
While this wasn’t one of the recipes Len featured on KDKA, these Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash were one of our runaway favorites this year. Not quite a traditional holiday recipe, the delectable fall and winter flavors are still perfect for your celebration feast. Seasoned rice, spice-filled sausage, and sweet cranberries are simply divine tucked into nutty and sweet acorn squash.
