This was the first time I purchased your product. I bought 2 packages of your Homegame fully cooked bratwurst. They were great! We roasted them over our campfire and they tasted wonderful! I plan to try more of your products in the future. I am always glad to support great WI products. Keep up the good work! - Jane Masters

Had your low fat, low calorie Chicken Brats last nite for the first time. They were excellent! - Ken Hartenian

Congratulations on the wonderful "easy to open" packaging on your ring bologna. What a treat to easily open your product. Thank you. - Janet Augustine

My son Dave lives in Long Beach, CA and I always take Cher-Make beef summer sausage and hotdogs (per his request) in my suitcase when I visit. It's the only type he (and 4 yr old granddaughter) likes. Do you ship directly from your factory? She turns 4 next week, she wants a desk and summer sausage for her birthday from Grandma. - Susan Luebke

We live too far from home to get the good stuff locally. We would like to buy online in 50-100# lots. Maybe larger. Please save us from the inferior products that proliferate the grocery store counters. We need our Cher-Make sausage. - Phil Brantley

Every time I visit my parents in Wisconsin I bring home a suitcase full of Summer Sausage, and I make them bring as many sausages as they can fit every time they come visit me. Unfortunately I'm down to my last sausage right now, and I'm months away from another visit. My little girls are going to be so sad without their sausage sandwiches for lunch, and we just can't get anything good out here in California. Keep up the good work, and let me know if you can help us out! - Dave Luebke


  • 1 package Beef Ring Bologna 14 oz.
  • 2 tbsps butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 6 unpeeled red or white potatoes, diced
  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup whipping cream or whole milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


Remove casing and dice up ring bologna; set aside. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and celery; cook for 5 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with flour and stir until absorbed. Remove heat. Gradually add chicken broth (to avoid lumps), stirring after each addition until smooth.

Return saucepan to heat. Add half of the diced ring bologna. Add potatoes and corn; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in cream, half the parsley, salt and pepper. Add the remaining diced ring bologna. Heat until hot. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Ladle into warmed soup bowls, garnish with remaining parsley.
