Cooking Tips and Tricks
Zeigler’s Sausages are made from heritage pork and should be prepared properly for optimal flavor. In other words….you’re starting with great sausages, so don’t mess ’em up. Cook to 150 degrees Fahrenheit and let them rest; the carryover temperature will ensure that your sausage is cooked to perfection. Also, don’t slice in half or pierce the casings prior to cooking – your sausage will be dry. And no one likes a dry sausage.
There are several ways to approach cooking Zeigler’s Sausages – baked or prepared on the grill are our two favorites. As a rule of thumb, let the sausages sit out for about 10 minutes or so prior to cooking them. This brings them up to room temp a bit, and ensures that they will cook evenly.
