At Isernio’s, we pride ourselves on bringing you the best. The best flavor, the best quality, the best products.

And now we’re so excited to announce that we’ve combined all of that quality you expect with the convenience that you crave.

We’ve launched a new line of fully cooked chicken sausages, letting you whip up a healthy and tasty meal faster than ever before. They come in three different varieties:

  • Sweet Italian Chicken with Parmesan Cheese
  • Caprese Chicken with Mozzarella, Basil, & Sun Dried Tomato
  • Apple Chicken

All of the sausages are made with chicken raised with no antibiotics ever, are 100% vegetarian fed, and certified humanely raised and handled.

And because we’re committed to bringing you the best, our new fully cooked sausages:

  • Are Gluten-free
  • Contain no MSG
  • Have no nitrates or nitrites
  • Are free of preservatives
  • Have no artificial colors or flavors

They’re also low in carbs and high in protein, making them fit with a number of different dietary lifestyles.

And since they’re fully cooked, they are incredibly versatile. Reheat them and toss them with your pasta, slice & saute them to sprinkle on a hearty salad, or toss them on a grill, wrap them in a bun, and top them to your liking.

Right now you can find the Italian Chicken Sausage and Caprese varieties at Albertsons and Safeway stores in Washington and Oregon. All three varieties are available C&K Markets in Oregon and California.

And if you’re not in the current distribution area – don’t worry! We’re working to bring this product to more stores soon! In the meantime, see what products are available in your area here.

Five Alternatives to the Traditional Easter Ham

Maybe you’re not cooking for such a large crowd this year. Or maybe you’re just looking to mix things up from the traditional Easter ham. Regardless, here are five delicious and impressive dishes worthy of your holiday table.

All featuring our favorite ingredient – sausage!

Crown Roast of Lamb with Spicy Sausage and Apple Stuffing by Lin’s Food: Lamb is a fantastic Easter dinner, and it couldn’t be more majestic than in this crown. Stuffed with savory sausage and sweet apples, this will be a delight for both your eyes and your taste buds.

Italian Easter Pie by Genius Kitchen: You might think that ham is the traditional Easter food, but the Italian tradition is a savory Easter Pie filled with eggs, meats, and cheese. It is also known as “Pizza Rustica.” This year treat your family to a REAL traditional meal and present one of these at the center of your table.

Grilled Sausage with Asparagus by My Recipes: This would be a great option for a less formal Easter dinner, or a small crowd. The vibrant colors scream “spring,” and the fresh flavors practically pop off the plate. Plus, using Isernio’s sausages you can mix up the sausage varieties to offer your guests a number of different flavor options.

Rock Cornish Hens Stuffed with Sausage by Isernio’s: How cute would these be sitting on a plate? Petite and perfect, this would also be a fabulous option for a small, intimate gathering that doesn’t necessarily warrant a whole ham.

Beef Braciole Stuffed with Sausage by Sur la Table: A formal holiday is worth a real labor of love, and few things are more special than a long-simmered beef braciole. It might not be traditional, but what’s stopping you from starting your own new tradition?

We’d love for Isernio’s to be part of your holiday menu. And from our kitchen to yours – Happy Easter!

Plan the Perfect Romantic Dinner with Isernio’s

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and what’s more romantic than an intimate Italian dinner with your main squeeze?

An intimate Italian dinner that you made yourself.

So whether you failed to make reservations ahead of time, are having trouble finding a babysitter, need to pinch a few pennies, or just want the bonus points that come with making the extra effort to cook, here are four Isernio family favorites to serve for an extra-special Valentine’s Day dinner.

 

Fettuccine alla Crema di Zucca e Salsiccia – The only way to make this romantic pasta dinner more impressive is to say it in Italian. This fettuccine is tossed in a creamy sauce with butternut squash and sausage, and is the perfect portion for two. Make it romantic by: Splurging for fresh (rather than dried) pasta, garnishing with fresh sage, and pairing with a crisp white wine.

Spaghetti and Meatballs – It’s that one scene from Lady and the Tramp that we’re all familiar with. A giant plate of spaghetti, and he gives her the last meatball. Be still our beating hearts. Recreate the quintessential romantic dinner with this Isernio family classic, made spectacular with sausage instead of traditional meat and a panade to keep the meatballs moist and tender.  Make it romantic by: Garnishing with fresh parmesan and parsley, pairing with a robust red, and adorning your table with a traditional red-and-white checked tablecloth.

Sausage with Mussels – Seafood is always a romantic option, and it also cooks up in a snap if you’re short on time. Think of how dramatic your table will look with a giant plate of mussels for two. Make it romantic by: Adding pasta to toss with the mussels and broth, garnishing with parsley, and pairing with a Pinot Grigio.

Paella – Alright, you caught us. Paella isn’t Italian, but sometimes it’s nice to do the unexpected – especially on a special occasion. Paella is usually served “family style,” so you and your love can share a colorful dish at the table as you linger and talk over their favorite bottle of white wine. Make it romantic by: Quietly playing some traditional Spanish music in the background, decorating the table with a colorful bouquet, and writing your sweetie a love note they find when they sit down to eat.

 

With a little planning, preparation, and Isernio’s we’re confident you can pull off a restaurant quality dish right in your own kitchen. What do you think you’ll make for your sweetie?
