For a great tasting breakfast, let’s start with Glenn’s Frisky Frittata recipe. This scrambled egg dish used Glenn’s breakfast sausage sauteed in his Organic Garlic infused olive oil, eggs, salt and pepper, sliced sweet peppers, diced onions and a grated blend of Asiago and Parmesan cheeses. Real easy to make and very tasty! This dish could easily go along with hash browns, toast and fresh brewed coffee!

Thinking about lunch – try this Enchilada dish that is also delicious and easy to make with a few ingredients. Glenn browned one pound each of ground beef and turkey in a skillet with some of his Harissa infused and Cilantro /Roasted Onion infused olive oils. Add to the meat some cooked chopped onion along with ½ t of cumin and 1 ½ T chili powder; along with salt and 16 ozs. of tomato sauce. The pictures show how good theses dishes look but the final proof is in the TASTING – very delicious!

This tasty recipe consists of 100% lean chicken meat, minced bits of Northern Meats own bacon, ranch seasoning plus Glenn’s own mixture of spices that he uses for all his brat recipes. Oh, man – are these brats delicious! Moist as always with all of Glenn’s brats with tender chicken. I couldn’t specifically distinguish the ranch seasoning however this recipe is great tasting!

This newest flavor joins Glenn’s other customer favorites – Mushroom & Swiss, Mac & Cheese and his Tailgate brats. Smokehouse Glenn has received so many requests for various brat recipes that he may have to TEMPORARILY retire several because his brat list is getting lengthy.



Another new recipe to emerge from the Northern Meats test kitchen – Sun dried Tomato & Basil Marinaded Chicken breasts. Mmmm Good! Smokehouse Glenn is always at work bringing you quality beef, pork and chicken meal entrees for your eating enjoyment.


Nothing beats Glenn's tasty brats from the grill!

Sample Saturday Was Hamming It Up at Northern Meats

Northern Meat’s third Sample Saturday featured Hams from Dearborn Sausage and Smokehouse Glenn was demonstrating how he can spiral slice and glaze a delicious ham from Easter holiday dinner. Northern Meats is the only custom cut butcher shop in the area that can spiral slice and glaze a Dearborn ham for you.

I had a Dearborn ham for last Christmas and these hams taste delicious! Dearborn Hams are  not  water-added hams meaning that you are paying for a true weight in meat and not extra water. Water adding can also increase the salt content of the ham, which is never desirable.

Glenn was selling several hams this weekend and I had the chance to watch both his slicing and glazing procedures.

Here is Glenn using his spiral slicer on a Dearborn ham:

Now comes the glazing process to finalize that great Dearborn flavor:
