Celebrate National Sausage Month

October 2016

Known as a time for tailgating, bonfires and beer, it’s quite convenient that October is National Sausage Month. Once seen as peasant fare, sausage is a versatile ingredient that many chefs are experimenting with on their menus.

According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, Americans consumed an estimated 14 billion servings of sausage in 2015. Diners love it because it tastes good, and chefs love it because of its affordability and versatility. While sausage is often used as a component of other dishes, it can also serve as a center-of-plate protein.
