Thanksgiving is almost here, and with it I need quick and easy snacks that are delicious and have a fun theme to them. I love sausage and so when we were at Walmart and I saw the Old Wisconsin Turkey Snack Sticks I knew that I had to get them. When we got home, we used them to make Snack Stick Turkeys and I love how they turned out. They will be perfect to put on our Thanksgiving table as place holders or let the kids make for a fun snack before the big meal. There are so many ways to use these snack sticks (including just munching on them). Old Wisconsin has a great selection of sausage products and they all taste amazing.
They were super easy to put together. We just cut some cheese into cubes (or you can buy cubed cheese), we cut the Old Wisconsin Sausage Snack Sticks into pieces, we got some french bread and cut it into chunks, and then added an olive to the top. To make the head we got kiss candies and put in on a toothpick (don’t try and go to deep or the kiss will split), and then used a little frosting to “glue” mini chocolate chips on. For the base we used half of a potato. You can cook it or not – ours are raw so that they will hold the snack sticks better.
Do you have a great recipe that you want to share? Old Wisconsin is holding an awesome contest and the winner could win a variety of cash prizes each month through Dec. 31 and a grand prize of $10,000! Just create an original recipe using the “secret” ingredient for the month and any Old Wisonsin for Budding product and submit it on their #MakeItDelish website. “Carl Buddig & Company and Old Wisconsin’s products are so versatile — they can be the center of a dish, used in a side or mixed into a complex entrée,” said Tom Buddig, executive vice president of marketing at Carl Buddig & Company. “What’s fun about this contest is that consumers will be sharing their own Buddig- and Old Wisconsin-inspired recipes and passing on some of their mealtime traditions to other families.” Each month — October, November and December — will feature a new secret ingredient and a chance to win.
At the end of each month, all the submitted recipes will be evaluated by a panel of judges, which includes Buddig family members and a trained chef. The top three scoring recipes each month will win 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes of $1,000, $500 and $250, respectively, as well as automatically be entered to be a Grand Prize finalist. Top-scoring recipes throughout the contest will also be featured in a special digital Buddig cookbook that will be available for download early 2016. An unlimited number of recipes can submitted, but each recipe must be unique. Judges will be scoring recipes based on the following criteria:
- Simplicity: Is the recipe easy to make, are the directions clear and are ingredients easy to find?
- Creativity: Out-of-the-ordinary recipes will have an edge!
- Use of secret ingredient: Does the recipe do a good job of incorporating both the secret ingredient as well as the Buddig/Old Wisconsin product?
- Flavor: Does the end result taste good?
After all Grand Prize finalists have been selected, voting will be open to the general public for them to decide which recipe takes the cake. The recipe with the most votes will be named the Grand Prize winner and receive $10,000. An additional $10,000 will also be given to the winner’s primary retailer, who will donate the prize winnings to its charity of choice.
