Smokehouse Glenn took our office by surprise with a new item none of us would have ever thought of trying as a taste test sample item – Mesquite Chicken Patties. In the past, the taste (or lack of) in a processed chicken patty is something I would like to stay away from. Glenn’s freshly made patties are a product you will purchase more than once.
Starting off with ground white meat of chicken (and some dark mixed in) added to that a smoke mesquite flavoring and pressed into thick patties. Glenn pre-cooked these patties which enables them to hold together better without any outside breading added. The only remaining thing to do is warm them up before eating – in a pan, in the microwave, on the grill. Warmed up, Glenn served these patties on a hamburger bun, slice of American cheese and some Walnut Creek Black Bean Salsa.
Thick, juicy chicken patties with a hint of smoky flavor along with a sweet tasting salsa – Glenn has created one chicken patty with a delicious flavor. The patty held together well in the bun and it doesn’t have a breading for an outer coating. I want more….
Speaking of new test kitchen items, Glenn has added a chicken cordon bleu sausage and a Santa Fe chicken sausage to his ever increasing selection of available sausage and brats to buy.
