How to Cook/Handle/Prepare


Due to differences in cooking equipment, heating times may require adjustment.


Preheat grill to medium-low heat. Grill sausage for 8-10 minutes, or until heated thoroughly turning frequently for even browning. 


Bring 2/3 cup of water to boil in a large skillet. Add sausage; cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 10-12 minutes or until heated thoroughly, turning once. If browning is desired, drain water and heat for 3-4 minutes or until browned, turning frequently.


Wrap sausage in moistened paper towel and place on a microwave- safe plate. Microwave on HIGH for 40-45 seconds* or until heated thoroughly. Let stand in microwave 1 minute, before serving.

*The preparation directions were developed using an 1100 watt microwave oven set on High. Due to differences in microwave ovens, heating time may vary.

For children under 5 years: Cut links lengthwise, then slice into bite size pieces.
