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!
