Just to let you know we enjoy your natural casing hot dogs and polish sausage, might be the best we've ever had - KEEP IT COMING! - Robert Christensen

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

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

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

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

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

Ingredients

  • 1 package 100 Calorie Chicken Brat 12 oz.
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 package orzo (450 gram)
  • 1 package kale, stems removed and chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups corn, cooked
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the orzo, cooking until al dente (about 5 minutes). Drain well and put back into the pot it was cooked in.

While the orzo is cooking, place the oil in a large skillet and add the sausage until lightly browned. Add kale and corn, cooking until kale is wilted. Add cherry tomatoes, cooking until warmed through (about 2-3 minutes).

Pour the sausage mixture into the pot of orzo, add the feta cheese and ground pepper. Stir to combine. Add salt if desired.
