Glenn brought in two snacks made from two different flavored brats and his most popular steak sauce. Using his regular brat recipe and his Jalapeno & Pepper Jack Cheese brats, slice these links, cook them in a sauce pan. When the pieces are cooked, pour an ample amount of Glenn’s Sweet Onion Steak Sauce over the brat pieces and glaze. Transfer to a plate, supply tooth picks and your favorite cracker to place each slice on. Voila! Your extra ordinary snack!

Woeber’s Mustards

Cranberry Honey is made of a pure, golden honey blended with fresh, ground cranberries and special seasoning. Tasty with a great sweetness from the fresh cranberries. Champagne Dill is their famous dijon mustard with a mix of dill seasoning. This mustard is more my flavor choice with the dill making it unique in itself.

Published by Rilee Waller on January 2nd, 2013

Happy New Year from Northern Meats and Smokehouse Glenn! Starting off the new year, Glenn brought Glenn brought in another “Test Kitchen” item that was suggested by a walk-in customer. Brats are a hot item at Northern Meats and the other day a customer came in and asked Glenn if he ever made brats with pineapple in the mix. No, but that sounds like a great tasting idea.

Well, here is the final product – right out of the “Test Kitchen” – Brats with Pineapple & Green Onions. Moist, tender and a hint of pineapple flavor, this recipe can be added to the list of Glenn’s available flavors of brats featured in his display case.


Also brought in for sampling was several links of Glenn’s brats with green onions. Again another brat recipe that is moist, tender, mildly seasoned with a hint of green onion taste. Great for BBQ grilling, tailgate parties, place these brats in a fresh soft bun with spicy brown mustard, grilled onions or kraut and you have a delicious meal!

As a side note, last week you might recall, Smokehouse Glenn brought in samples of both jumbo scallops and shrimp. Since I found out that Glenn has a seafood connection, I had to have him order mussels and clams for me so I could try my long awaited Food Network recipe of clams and mussels with linguine. Enclosed you will see a photo of my finished dish – it was oh, so tasty! Never tasted mussels before this and I found them to be slightly softer in texture than clams. The mussels take on the flavor of the sauce they are cooked in. This will be a repeat recipe for me!!! Thanks, Glenn!Shell fish provided by Northern Meats

Breakfast Brats Contain ALMOST Everything You Need to Start the Morning!!!

Published by Rilee Waller on September 5th, 2012

Smokehouse Glenn brought in a Breakfast Brats that LOOKED similar to previous brats he has made – but don’t be fooled…all brats are not the same!!!

These brats start out with a pork base, Glenn has added “veggies” (not telling what kinds are mixed in there), ham, cheese and whole egg solids held together inside genuine natural casings!!! All you need is two slices of toast and you are all set. You might be able to place two of these between a sliced bagel or English Muffin for a brawny brat breakfast sandwich!!

You could also partner these brats with French toast, waffles or pancakes for the full course breakfast – it just wouldn’t take up a lot of room on your plate!

Can you see the 4 Food Groups in there?
