Treat your guests to mouthwatering appetizers for the holidays

For Tom and I, we pretty much have down time in December (whew!). The airports are crazy as is the unpredictable weather, so we don’t travel to Charlotte or California to see family, and wouldn’t think about driving to the west side. But most of you are now in the serious crazy thick of it; shopping, parties, family, decorating, wrapping, shipping, in the car all the time. What can I offer that would help make things easier for the hostess of the house?

You’ve probably outlined the main dinner, and are on top of the baking, snacks, etc.. I’d like to suggest a couple of easy prep and serve dishes that will be a nice surprise for your guests. 

For this special time of year Angus Meats offers several combinations of wonderful mouth-watering appetizers that will quickly disappear off the plate. Take the edge off with Coconut Chicken Skewers, Teriyaki Beef & Chicken Skewers, Schwann Skewers, or plain Beef and Pork Skewers. Dip in your own sauces, or we have suggestions from Chef Jeff who can help with sides (just ask!). They’re so simple and easy to bake in the oven with a quick 15 to 20 minutes at 400°. 

For breakfast, how about a fabulous meat treat to go along with the omelets and cinnamon rolls? Lean bacon is great of course, and the store brand sausage is sometimes a hit or miss proposition. For something really different and amazing, you must try our handmade Angus Meats Apple-Cranberry or Blueberry Peach Sausage Links (known as ‘Little Chubbies’). They are unbelievable with that “snap” casing and taste-bud pleasing wake-up flavor. Yum!

If you’re interested in either one of these specialty items you won’t find anywhere else, just give us a call at 509-482-7033. We’re always ready for you and in your neighborhood just south of Gonzaga Prep. Shop local! 

Hope your holidays are delightful, celebrating family and good health!

Earlier this month Angus Brands was at the Spokane Convention Center displaying a variety of products. If you were there, we hope you had an opportunity to swing by our booth for a taste! Some of the items we had at the show:

  • Assorted fresh cut steaks and chop, cut from highest quality beef, pork and lamb.  Did you know Angus Brands specializes in custom cut poultry and wild game?
  • Angus Brands’ signature Apple Cranberry Sausage.  Nothing says breakfast like real maple syrup joined with Washington State fire roasted Fuji apples and tart Craisins… wake up and smell the sausage!
  • Waddell’s Scottish Ale Sausage. This is a sausage where you won’t know whether to drink it or eat!  Waddell’s North is a local restaurant and brewery that asked us to make them a signature Scottish Ale Sausage.  The sausage link turned out so good that we want the world to try it. Because we’re that nice. 🙂
  • One of our newest smashburger creations:   Big Thyme Burger, infused with fresh thyme and roasted garlic.  We had them standing in line to try the big flavors in this burger.
  • Rounding off the burger table was another of our new creations, the Sante Fe Burger.  This bold statement combines ground beef with our fresh ground chorizo. One bite will take you south of the border with cilantro, white onion and high temperature pepper jack cheese.  Ole’!

With hot samples right off the grill, we had a blast showing off our locally handcrafted products.

Camping is fun but also a whole lotta’ work. Once you’ve remembered to pack all your essentials, sometimes food can be an afterthought.  A quick run to the store and you’ve got your hot dogs, buns, ketchup, chips, pasta salad (if you’re lucky) and smores fixins, right?  It will get you by – but you can do better. Much better.

Our Savory Choices convenient meals are restaurant-quality prepared selections that can easily be made at the campsite.  They come pre-portioned and cryovaced for easy storage and transportation.

The year of global flavors

By | Angus Meats, Bold Burger, News, Pub Patty, Savory Choices | No Comments

If you haven’t already noticed, somethin’ different is a brewing at your local grocer and favorite restaurant. It’s a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, and a whole lotta’ global.

We’re talking about the rise of international inspirations intertwined into our foods. Population shifts towards America becoming an even more ethnically diverse nation plus exposure from social media is making the world a smaller place.

The result is a trend towards more exotic tastes and spicier bites. From curry potato chips to Siracha-doused everything, from hummus (in lieu of mayo) to kimchi-flavored beef jerky, and of course our very own Angus Brands flavor-forward selections — nothing’s off the table.

What are some new flavor combinations that you have tried? Anything crazy? We’d love to hear it!

And while we have your attention – take a gander at our infographic we created with more trends we’re seeing this year.
