Holiday Hosting with Isernio’s Sausage

The holidays are a wonderful time to gather with family and friends, and when it’s your turn to host you want to serve your guests nothing but the best. We’ve rounded up some great recipes to consider for your holiday menu – try them with fresh and flavorful Isernio’s sausage!


Overnight Breakfast Sausage, Egg, and Veggie Strata – Holiday hosting is so much easier when you can do most of the work ahead of time, allowing you more time with your guests. Make this the night before and just pop it in the oven the next morning.

Italian Sausage Quiche – Quiche is the breakfast casserole’s more-refined cousin. If you want something easy but a little more upscale, this is it. It’s easy to customize the fillings to your liking!

Cinnamon Roll Pigs in a Blanket – Part sausage roll, part cinnamon roll, this sweet-and-savory combo will be like nothing your guests have tried before! 


Garlic Toasts with Sausage, Pepper, and Goat Cheese – This Isernio’s original is a spin on the classic Italian crostini. The individual portions make it perfect for pre-dinner noshing.

Herbed Meatballs with Cranberry Barbecue Sauce – If you can’t find our Cranberry Sage Sausage, just use our Classic Pork Sausage. The cranberry sauce will give you all the holiday flavor you need!

Sausage and Spinach Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms – These bite-sized apps are ideal for a buffet or open house. Savory and satisfying!


Sausage Plait with Caramelized Onions – This braided puff pastry stuffed with sausage, fresh herbs, and sundried tomato paste will steal the show at your sit-down holiday dinner.

Classic Lasagna with Sausage – A lasagna is a true labor of love, and its gorgeous presentation is worthy of any holiday gathering. It’s a great way to feed a crowd and can even be assembled in advance to cut down on your day-of to-do’s. 

Homemade Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce – If you’re hosting a more intimate gathering, treat your family or friends to a real delicacy – homemade gnocchi! Serve it with tomato sauce and browned sausage, or a more cream-based sauce for a holiday indulgence. If you’re crunched for time, you can always buy fresh gnocchi at your grocery store for a shortcut.
