Pheasant Brats

Summer is over and fall is now upon us. Football season is in full gear now so let’s talk tailgating!

If bratwurst is your ‘go to’ choice for tailgating, MacFarlane Pheasant Brats are a great alternative. Remember, our pheasants are fed natural grains, no antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products. When we process the meat, we don’t inject it with water to bulk it up.

MacFarlane Pheasant Brats, which do have some ground turkey added to help the sausage retain its consistency when grilling, come in four flavors: Smoked, Southwestern, Golden Harvest and Cordon Bleu. Southwestern has a little kick with some pepper cheese and jalapeno, Golden Harvest has a Thanksgiving flair with apple, cranberry and almond added and Cordon Bleu has turkey ham and Swiss cheese.

They come five in a package for $9.99 in the store or you can order online. The average sausage brat has 283 calories, and only 11 grams of protein. The calorie count for pheasant brats ranges from 140 to 160 calories and there are 21 grams of protein in a pheasant brat. Grill them on low heat and don’t poke with a fork; you want to keep that juice in.

We’ve got a nice stock of them at our store so if you decide you want to serve them at your tailgate party – drop by the store at 2821 S.Hwy 51, Janesville, WI; or order online at www.pheasantfordinner.com (there’s a list of stores that carry our products there for easy reference, too) or give us a call: 608-757-7881 or toll-free 800-345-8348.

Try something new this season that will get your guests excited! Our pheasant brats taste great and contain less preservatives and fillers than traditional brats. Even if your team loses the game, you’ll be a winner with pheasant brats.
