Brown some Uncle Charley’s Sweet Italian or Pork Sausage. Use a wooden spoon to break the sausage into small pieces as it browns. Add a can of diced tomatoes and then a brick of cream cheese – stirred in until it melts. Salt and pepper can be added as well. Serve warm with chips for dipping.

Topped with breadcrumbs, chopped scallions, kosher salt, cracked black pepper, and grated Parmesan. Proceed to watch as these tasty delights are gobbled up in no time by guests.
SAUSAGE WITH APPLE & SAGE
This savory party starter is both sweet and sour. Uncle Charley’s Pork Sausage – fried to a golden brown in a saute pan with olive oil – is pierced with a toothpick and served with apple, which is also pan fried golden in melted butter with sugar, and sage bites.
Bratwurst Stewed with Sauerkraut
Brown some Uncle Charley’s Bratwurst in oil on high heat in a large pan. Add some chopped onions and minced garlic cloves; cooking them until slightly caramelized. Proceed to add in chicken stock, caraway seeds, paprika, and sauerkraut; letting it simmer for 45 minutes. Once removed from heat, stir in some fresh dill and serve on a baguette.
Totally Lazy Mini Sausage Rolls

The sausage, which is seasoned with salt, pepper, and thyme leaves, is rolled in a homemade or store bought puff pastry. Before serving, be sure to refrigerate these sausage rolls for roughly 20 minutes for the pastry to harden.
