When it’s cold outside, it’s Chili time inside!

The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder and longer.  So what’s the best way to heat things up …  how about a steaming hot bowl of chili?  There are a lot of great family chili recipes, but these days not everyone has the time to make them.  We think the Usinger Sausage Chili recipe is a good one too!  The best part is ours involves no slicing, dicing and chopping on your part, we’ve done the work for you.  Just put a package or two of Usinger’s Sausage Chili in pan, add a little water and heat slowly.  Available in 16 ounce tubes it’s easy to make just the right amount whether serving one or ten.  You can embellish it with rice, pasta or even a baked potato if you like, or just serve it straight up.  Usinger’s Sausage Chili contains no MSG and is gluten free.  You can find the complete recipe under the Recipes tab on our website.  In the Milwaukee area, it’s available at Sendik’s, Woodman’s, Sentry, Pick N Save, Piggly Wiggly, and other independent stores.  If your grocer doesn’t have it, ask if they can order it for you…otherwise you can order it from usinger.com yourself, or go to the recipe and make it from scratch.  Enjoy a great tasting bowl of chili tonight …and stay warm.


‘Tis the season.  Like we really need an excuse for beer and brats right off the grill.  If you haven’t tried it before, Fall is a great time to dress up those brats with Usinger Festival Sauerkraut.  We make it ourselves; kraut simmered with apples, onions, brown sugar and smoky Usinger apple wood smoked bacon pieces.  Conveniently packed in 1 Lb. tubes, it’s easy to use … just heat and eat.  Nothing warms up a crisp fall day like a hot grill of sizzling Usinger sausages.

That’s the real smell of Autumn.
