Nolechek's Favorite Thanksgiving Snacks
What's Wisconsin's favorite snack, any time of the year? That's right; it's cheese and sausage (crackers are optional for you keto and low-carb folks). Hardly a holiday, football game, camping experience, or party takes place in our fair state without this core classic of Midwestern gatherings. Wisconsin producers make THE BEST cheese and summer sausage out there. Try both in our Cheese & Sausage Combo: slice up 2 kinds of Wisconsin Cheese from LaGrander's Hillside Dairy and three summer sausage varieties from our place. You'll be in Dairy State Snack Heaven!
If you haven't tried Nolechek's premium Liver Sausage, you're missing out! Its secret ingredient is our Hickory Smoked Honey Cured Bacon, which adds a layer of richness to this product made with lean pork sourced from the Midwest. Choose from traditional, spreadable (sooo good on a sturdy cracker) or our personal favorite: Liver Sausage with Horseradish. Liver Sausage also makes terrific tea sandwiches on white bread, just slice it and add cucumber and mayo.
No snack plate is complete without some creamy spreadable cheese. Our Bucky Badger Cheese Spreads are made right here in Wisconsin and come in four varieties: Port Wine, Creamy Cheddar, Bacon and Creamy Horseradish. We like it spread thick on a buttery cracker. If you're counting carbs, it's also perfect for dipping with celery sticks. For a more substantial snack, take your grilled cheese to the next level by adding some Creamy Cheddar spread to our LaGrander's Premium Wisconsin Cheese. Quarter the sandwiches for the best grilled cheese bites ever!
Snack sticks are perfect for party trays. They're portable and easy to eat, especially if you're socializing with a cocktail in hand. All seven varieties of Nolechek's Snack Sticks start with lean, rich beef and are combined with our own signature blend of savory seasoning. We smoke our snack sticks using 100% natural hickory and this snack is keto-friendly and naturally gluten free. Our varieties include:
- Beef & Cheddar with Dried Cranberries
- Beef & Cheddar
- Beef & Cheddar with Jalapeno Peppers
- Snappy Beef - with cayenne pepper
- Maple Syrup - with Craig's Pure Maple Syrup
…the only tricky part about serving these sticks will be choosing your favorite!
We saved the best snack for last. It includes the trifecta of food: beer, brats, and bacon! For the best Bacon Wrapped Bratwurst Bites, start with Nolechek's Traditional Bratwurst boiled in your favorite beer. Slice them into thirds, wrap in Nolechek's Hickory Smoked Honey Cured Bacon and toss in a mixture of brown sugar and cayenne pepper. Bake until the bacon is crisp and you have the ultimate snack food. Be sure to make plenty of extras because when friends and family smell the aroma coming from the oven, they will come a-runnin'!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
