Johnsonville Sausage Review and Giveaway

Sausage is such a versatile food. Whether you pair it with pasta, have it with eggs and toast for breakfast, or eat it just by itself, there are so many ways to enjoy it. You can have it mild, sweet, or even hot. Whichever sausage type you prefer is available to your liking.

Johnsonville Sausage is a Wisconsin-based sausage producer, founded in 1945 by Ralph F. & Alice Stayer. Johnsonville Sausage produces various varieties of sausage including fresh bratwurst, Italian sausage, smoked-cooked links and fresh breakfast sausage links. In 2004, Johnsonville became the largest sausage company in the United States in terms of sales.

I was sent three varieties of sausage to try. I received hot, mild, and sweet.


Tonight I browned up some sausage with the Uncle Ben's rice that I received.

I seasoned the sausage with garlic powder and seasoned salt. It smelled amazing while cooking. It cooked very fast and evenly and I couldn't wait to eat it. The taste of the sausage had an element of sweetness to it while still having that sausage bite. The flavor of the sausage combined with the spices was excellent The texture of the meat was tender and not chewy at all. I cooked it perfectly too, it was not overdone but just right. The color of the sausage was a perfect golden brown. I'm looking forward to trying the other sausages soon!

You can see the full details on how you can enter for a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize by visiting this link.. All folks need to do to enter the contest is upload a favorite recipe of theirs – or a new one they've created – using Johnsonville Italian Sausage.

  181. I would love to win this sausage because we like to make homemade pizzas and we use it as a topping. We like to get together as a family and make a meal and the boys love using this sausage.
