Johnsonville Announces New Split Sausage Links for Foodservice Menus

Foodservice operators can revitalize the sandwich experience with new split sausage sinks from Johnsonville.

Johnsonville believes this new split sausage product format is perfect for foodservice operators looking to create unique sandwiches that intrigue and drive menu interest for any time of the day. Johnsonville Split Sausage Links fit a variety of bread carriers that already exist in most operators’ pantries.

Johnsonville Splits are evenly butterflied 80% through the link for optimal product performance in foodservice kitchens with less breakage than competitive products. This format provides maximum flexibility for operators – spread open the Split Sausage Link and sear it to develop the flavorful caramelization consumers crave, or leave the product in tact to stuff with toppings. Johnsonville also offers more flavors and sizes of Split Sausage Links than any other supplier.

The available Split Sausage flavors:

  • Stadium Brat – available in 6” length to fit well on hoagie rolls, flatbread sandwiches, Italian rolls, hamburger buns, 6” ciabatta, panini, and sliced bread
  • Spicy German Brat – available in 6” length to fit well on hoagie rolls, flatbread sandwiches, Italian rolls, hamburger buns, 6” ciabatta, panini, and sliced bread
  • Old World Smoked Sausage – available in 3.75” length, perfect for biscuits, English muffins, pretzel and Kaiser rolls, and snack wraps
  • Smokehouse Jalapeño Bacon Cheddar Sausage – available in 3.75” length, perfect for biscuits, English muffins, pretzel and Kaiser rolls, and snack wraps

The new pre-split format offers a value by saving time, labor and guarantees a consistently split product. It also adds value for the customer by bringing bold flavor in a unique sandwich format. Adding Split Sausage Links to other proteins creates more indulgent sandwiches and burger builds. “Split Sausage is a great alternative to bacon for protein on protein applications,” says Todd Pogorzelski, vice president of Johnsonville Sausage. “Our Split Sausages as a topping actually cost less than bacon and provide more meat, more flavor, and more juiciness than bacon. Johnsonville Split Sausage is the new bacon!”

Like all Johnsonville Foodservice sausage products, Split Sausage Links are made with the freshest cuts of pork, with no TVP (textured vegetable protein), fillers or cereals added. They are packaged 5:1 and 7:1 and frozen for storage convenience at 2/5-lb bags to a case.
