These bite-size sandwiches are easy to prepare and they make the perfect game day food, allowing you to keep a free hand for high-fives.  This recipe from Real Simple takes approximately 25 minutes to make, and the preparation of the patties can be done the day before.

Margherita Isernio’s Sausage Meatballs

“Show me a football party without … meatballs and I’ll show you an invitation to a better party,” Rebecca Orchant, Huffington Post.

Using our chicken or pork sausage, these meatballs can be served by themselves as appetizers. Try simmering them in your favorite tomato sauce for at least a half hour to infuse the sauce with flavor from the meatballs.




Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Isernio’s Hot Italian Chicken Sausage

This recipe, from our friend @Missionfitchick, combines fresh and flavorful ingredients that make indulging healthy.




Caprese & Italian Chicken Sausage Rosemary Skewers

We took the Caprese Rosemary Skewers recipe from Karista’s Kitchen (http://karistaskitchen.com/2013/06/25/caprese-rosemary-skewers/) and added our own spin to it by using Italian Chicken sausage! This is a fun and simple to make antipasto that will make a fantastic addition to this year’s Super Bowl party!




Piggies en Croute

No game day is complete without sausage in puff pastry. This recipe comes from Top Chef contestant and former chef/owner of Crave, Robin Leventhal.  It’s a fancy twist on “Pigs in a Blanket.” Enjoy!
