Glenn’s Smoked Holiday Kielbasa

Published by Rilee Waller on March 25th, 2015

With over 30 years working with Dearborn Sausage, Smokehouse Glenn know quality good-tasting products. That’s what he brought in for sampling – good tasting kielbasa with extra added flavoring.vinegar & kielbasa

Glenn started with Dearborn’s Smoked Holiday kielbasa; course ground pork with a taste of garlic. Boosting the flavor just a kick, Glenn sauteed the kielbasa in a blend of Cayenne Chile Pepper olive oil and Cranberry Pear balsamic vinegar. Outstanding taste – the slight taste of cayenne along with the sweet pear personalized the kielbasa wonderfully.

Presto – Easy Breakfast Burritos From Smokehouse Glenn

Published by Rilee Waller on February 18th, 2015

Smokehouse Glenn has the pleasure of sharing several family recipes during the course of his processing day and came upon this particular cudighi recipe that incorporates of all spices – Allspice! To review, allspice is the dried unripe fruit of Pimenta dioica, an evergreen tree in the myrtle family. Also called Jamaica pepper, the English gave it its name in 1621 because they thought it combined the flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

Delicious bulk cudighi!

Northern Meat’s New Sea Salts Selections!

Published by Rilee Waller on December 11th, 2013

 Glenn’s own smoked polish kielbasa was kicked up a notch with some pan frying time in some of the Tuscan Herb infused olive oil to get things going. Next this sauteed kielbasa was mixed in with a batch of Armenian Rice Pilaf and Voila! There is a great lunch full of flavor and easy to create!

A new product line of seasoning to Northern Meats is an assortment of sea salts from two suppliers Glenn is doing business with. The Salt Works from Woodinville Washington and S~A~L~T Sisters of Goshen, Indiana. In Glenn’s sea salt sampler basket, he had four varieties of flavored sea salts from the Salt Works that Glenn in packaging himself from bulk. These flavors I tasted myself and was impressed with the varied flavor combinations found in each of these blends: Habanero Heat Sea Salt, Himalayan Pink Sea Salt, Jalapeno Sea Salt and Smoked Sea Salt. Each of these salts had a distinct, lively flavor to them and I’ll bet these each would accent the taste of any dish they were used in.

The Salt Works has a very informative website about the salts they sell and the numerous uses for salt (other than simply for the table salt shaker). I found out reading the Salt Works page on salt in general, that salt can be purchased in varied types of salt: mainly – Flavored ( Fusion® flavored salts bind natural ingredients to sea salt crystals ), Flaked,( a light crystal reminiscent of snowflakes. Seawater is evaporated using the natural processes of sun and wind ) Finishing ( most admired for their unique textures—either moist crystals or delicate flakes)and Course ( large-grained salt crystals best used in a grinder, providing an easy way of serving up freshly ground sea salt ).

The S~A~L~T Sisters has a family business that provide a strong portfolio of unrefined sea salt, the company staked a claim in organic cane sugars (c.a.n.e), seasoning rubs (r.u.b.s), vanilla infusion kits (b.e.a.n), and natural herb blends (h.e.r.b) and most recently all natural dip blends (d.i.p.s).

Kielbasa & Swiss – A Simple & Tasty Snack!

Published by Rilee Waller on September 25th, 2013

Northern Meats has many products that can serve as the main entree item but there are also meat items that can serve up as a simple lunch or snack item that will satisfy your appetite. Smokehouse Glenn’s kielbasa from Dearborn Sausage is one such item that could make a hit as a party or snack item that is simply delicious.

Glenn's Simple Snack!

Glenn’s Simple Snack!


This smoked kielbasa is mildly seasoned along the line of a Hungarian recipe and this product is fully cooked, so you just need to heat this kielbasa completely through to enjoy this product. I am a nacho lover so anything I can place on top of a hearty corn chip with melted cheese all over it is a hit with me. I suggested to Glenn about laying out a plate worth of tortilla chips, pan heat slices of this kielbasa, place them in the chips and melt any flavor of cheese on top – – Mmmmm!

Melted Cheesy Goodness!

Dearborn Hungarian-style Smoked Kielbasa at Northern Meats

Published by Rilee Waller on November 23rd, 2011

Smoked Kielbasa warmed on the frying pan

Marquette – 11/23/11 – This morning Glenn featured Dearborn Smoked Hungarian-style Kielbasa on his portion of this shopping show.  Everyone from the station always makes their way to Glenn a few moments after he enters the door as the aroma fills the offices and studios.  Glenn partners with Dearborne after working there for 30 years, and now carries many of their products in his store.  He carries their sausage products, hot dogs, lunch meats, smoked kielbasa, and can get almost any of their other products upon request.  Dearborn meats are top quality meat products as only Glenn would choose.

I took one bite of this kielbasa and immediately the flavor brought me back to many occasions my Mom prepared this similar, good-tasting kielbasa when I was growing up in New York…Mmmm, it was delicious then and was extremely delicious today!!!!

Along with many of Glenn’s other available meat products, these are quick and easy to cook and make a great snack or meal.  They are smoked so they are already fully cooked.  All you have to do is fry it in a skillet for a few minutes until it is warm.  The Dearborn Smoked Kielbasa is similar to Glenn’s homemade Polish Sausage.  The Kielbasa, however has more of a spicy flavor, with paprika and other spices added.

Stop in and check out Glenn’s store on M-28 to pick up some final food needs for your Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow.  Happy Thanksgiving!
