Whether your team wins or loses, make sure you have the perfect snacks and dishes that are sure to be a crowd-pleaser all across the board. Check out our list of sausage recipes for tailgating and other parties below:
Double Dribble Hoop Chicken & Sausage Pasta
Sausage and pasta? Count us in! Our double dribble hoop chicken and sausage pasta recipe combines the best of both worlds into one creamy and mouth-watering dish.
Start off with a greased baking pan and add a thin layer of cooking spray to coat the base evenly. Carefully place your real Italian sausage into a skillet and cook until heated through. Add your basil, oregano, milk and cheese as well as your favorite cooked pasta. Stir the contents, pop the ingredients into the oven for 45 minutes at 350° F and prepare for the ultimate taste bud indulgence.
Double Dribble Sausage Wraps
When you’re rooting for your favorite team, you don’t want to sit at the table — which is why you need food you can take with you on the go. What better way to fulfill your basketball and food cravings than with a delicious double dribble sausage wrap you can munch on anywhere?
Because the key to the perfect wrap lies within the sausage, remember to only invest in top-quality ingredients made with real Italian sausage meat. With a fresh skillet-full of sausage, you have the freedom to take your dish to the next level by adding your favorite vegetables, seasonings and tortillas.
Premio Slam Dunk Madness Dip
What would a sporting event be without a few helpings of chips and dip? Skip the usual salsa and kick your snacks up a notch with our Premio Slam Dunk Madness Dip made from bratwurst instead.
Cut your fresh Premio Sausage into small chunks and add it to a skillet with your onions and cook until done. Add some cream cheese, ranch and cheese dip, and you’re all ready to go. It’s game day, after all — who said cooking shouldn’t be easy?
Slam Dunk Cavatelli With Drink Sausage and Kale
Not every game day calls for an unhealthy meal or dishes loaded with fats and sugars. In fact, eating healthy is not only feasible — it can be delicious, too! Take our Slam Dunk Cavatelli With Chicken Sausage and Kale recipe, for instance. This recipe includes sweet Italian chicken sausage with kale for a simple — and healthy — snack.
Just heat our real Italian chicken sausage meat in a skillet and cook until slightly brown. Then, add garlic and olive oil to a separate skillet to cook your kale. Mix cooked pasta with the mixture and sprinkle cheese on top to add the finishing touch.
