America’s No. 1 sausage brand is making your time in the kitchen easier for sausage connoisseurs everywhere, with the launch of The Sizzling
Sausage Cookbook. Johnsonville hopes the new The Sizzling Sausage Cookbook appeals to grillmasters and grilling amateurs alike as it introduces the new cookbook to the marketplace. Johnsonville Sausage owner and The Sizzling Sausage Cookbook co-author Shelly Stayer partnered with
Johnsonville member Megan Nehls to develop a cookbook for those who need some inspiration in the kitchen, whether it’s a quick family dinner, a game day party, a festive gathering with friends or snack time for the kids.

“Now that grilling sausage is easier than ever before, we wanted to share our favorite recipes—some based on family favorites and others putting a new spin on classic sausages dishes—with sausage lovers everywhere,” says Nehls. The Sizzling Sausage Cookbook is inspired by the company’s launch of the first – and only – indoor electric sausage grill designed exclusively for Johnsonville fresh sausages.

“We’re all time-starved, so we wanted to give folks quick, easy and well balanced recipes that they can have fun with in 30 minutes or less,” says Stayer. Johnsonville takes the guesswork out of grilling with the Sizzling Sausage Grill™. And now, with The Sizzling Sausage Cookbook, consumers will have dozens of delicious recipes to pair with their favorite sausages and brats, from hurry-up appetizers to please a hungry crowd, to quick weekday meals for busy families and game-day treats for sporting events.
