With its bold and delicious flavor, our Hickory Farms Summer Sausage can be eaten as a quick snack on its own, paired with cheese and crackers, or added to recipes for extra depth of flavor. Create treats that are great for anything from an after school snack to hors d’oeuvres for a fancy party with these Summer Sausage snack ideas.
An even bolder snack mix
With varied flavors, plenty of texture, and lots of crunch, a good snack mix is always a crowd pleaser. With just a few extra ingredients, you can transform an ordinary store bought snack mix into something truly special.
Start by pouring a bag of your favorite snack mix into a large bowl. Then, add a couple cups of any flavor of popcorn, a handful of our Smoked Cheddar Blend cut into cubes, and our Signature Beef Summer Sausage, also cut into cubes. Once all of the ingredients are in the bowl, simply stir it together and serve.
Make it fancy
For a quick and easy appetizer that will fit into even the most elegant event, create a fun twist on an antipasti platter. To make this sophisticated presentation, simply layer green olives that have been marinated in herbs and lemon zest, slices of cheese, a piece of parsley, and a cube of our Signature Summer Sausage on a toothpick.
Everybody loves a good slider
If you seek something unexpected, try making a summer sausage mini sandwich. Start by pickling a bit of fennel in vinegar, salt, honey, and water. Meanwhile, grill your sausage until it has a bit of a char and is nice and crispy. Stack a couple summer sausages on top of one another and add a slice of your preferred cheese. Place the grilled summer sausage onto slider buns and finish with the pickled fennel and a dab of mayonnaise with Sriracha and lime juice.
By keeping our Signature Beef Summer Sausage and creamy cheeses from Hickory Farms on hand, you will have everything you need to whip up a delicious snack in moments.
