There are many small independent butchers and manufacturers that make a lot of eclectic flavours using pork, beef chicken and game meat with unique flavours. Their markets are individuals that like a fairly specific flavour profile or that want to try something once, not a product that will have larger group appeal.

Operators in foodservice want customers to come back again and again. What they need to do is bring in a dinner sausage that they can dress up as a centre of the plate option or offer it as a second or third offering on the menu to choose from.

Choosing a dinner sausage goes beyond saying send me a sweet Italian dinner sausage. There are some decisions to be made:

  • Do you want a 5” or 7” sausage?
  • Do you want a 6 to the pound or a 4 to the pound?
  • Do you want a cart sausage (traditionally a curved sausage) or a roller grill (straight sausage)?
  • Will this sausage work in other application in my operation?
  • Which Flavour profile and meat variety is best for me?

Maple Leaf offers a range of dinner sausages for you to choose from including our traditional Oktoberfest and Italian to Mediterranean and Debreziner.

Whichever you choose make sure you dress it up with ingredients that customers may not do at home so they want to come to you for it. If you want a great condiment ask your distributor for our Oktoberfest mustard, it is a sweet heat that is unique and memorable.
