One of my favorite things about a summer sausage is how versatile it is, with the meat capable of being cooked on its own for a hearty meal, cooked and cut up for things like pasta dishes, or cooked and tossed as an A+ topping for pizza. Hey, my name’s Nicholas Dante Dimengo, so you know that, as an Italian, I’m eating as much of this stuff as I can.

While I’ve messed around with a few of the name brands available at a generic supermarket, it wasn’t until I tried Grandpa Scalzo’s Famous that my meat game immediately went to the next level. Not only was Grandpa Scalzo’s popping with loads of flavor and was super tender, but it was cooked to perfection to pair nicely with my favorite dishes.

Grandpa Scalzo’s Famous Chicken Sausage is only made from the finest ingredients, using prime cuts of chicken, fresh broccoli rabe, huge chunks of hand cut Italian cheeses, and roasted red pepper. That means this meat is free from nitrates (unlike other meat products), making it all-natural. That’s about as good as it gets when talking about meat, guys.

Now, for anybody who knows me, I’m far from a chef. Sure, I know my way around a grill and all — most guys do — but it wasn’t until I started tossing Grandpa Scalzo’s Famous over a flame that my imagination in the kitchen really ran wild. I started using the meat in things like omelettes for breakfast, chopped as a side over some veggies for lunch, and then used for a midday snack before dinner. I was hooked.

With a couple of different options to choose from — Hot Italian Chicken Sausage, Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage — there are two distinctive flavors to bolden up any dish of your choice. Plus, because it’s chicken sausage and not pork sausage, you’ll feel a little less guilty snacking on it as much as you can.

Just look at what the Food Network wrote about the differences in nutrition between chicken sausage and pork sausage.

Look at the numbers: Pork sausage has 290-455 calories and 23-38 grams of fat per link. Chicken sausage has 140-160 calories and 7-10 grams of fat for the same amount. That’s hundreds of calories and fat grams dodged per link. You avoid loads of sodium, too, and you don’t lose in the taste department.

My personal favorite is the Hot Italian Chicken Sausage from Grandpa Scalzo’s Famous, but I tend to like spicier things on foods like pizza and in omelettes — where I pair the meat up with roasted peppers and onions, some Monterey Jack cheese and some mushrooms to really make an explosion of flavor.

Then again, I enjoy cooking the Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage on the grill and sticking between a bun with some sauerkraut or spicy mustard for that ideal summer dinner. But it’s your call on how you want to use the meat and make it liven up your favorite dish.

It’s hard to dispute an 80-year tradition of making quality and uniquely delicious sausage. From the idea being born from a three-decades-long friendship between buddies Ray and David to today, Grandpa Scalzo’s Famous has delivered incredible moments, creative recipes and delicious memories from households and backyard BBQs.

When it comes to a summer sausage, nobody beats Grandpa Scalzo. So scoop your favorite flavor and, like me, find yourself eating it as much as you can at anytime during the day. I’m guilty as charged.
