May is national barbeque month! What better way to celebrate the warmer weather by heading outdoors to enjoy some good food with good friends and family.
The Hearth, Patio and Barbeque Association recently took a poll of Americans about their grilling habits, and the consensus is that outdoor cooking is as popular as ever! We thought this statistic was particularly interesting:
Seventy percent of Americans say cooking out gets them in a healthier routine, specifically by encouraging time spent outdoors instead of cooped up in the house. Outdoor cooking also encourages adults to make smarter food choices such as eating fresh rather than frozen foods (54% agreed) and cooking healthier food on the grill overall (40% agreed).
We agree that cooking fresh food outdoors is a smart, healthy option. Our chicken sausages are a great choice for the grill: 95% lean and available in many versatile flavors. Whether it’s a sausage & pepper sandwich, sausage burger, grilled pizza, or simply a colorful platter of grilled sausage and vegetables, we hope you can find ways to fit our lean, healthy sausage into your outdoor cooking plans this summer.
What are your barbeque plans for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend? Do you have any favorite sausage grilling recipes to share?
