1. Sausage Balls:


  • 1 pound Wilders mild ground sausage
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups biscuit mix (such as Bisquick)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder (optional)
  • Dipping sauces (honey mustard, cranberry sauce, etc.), for serving


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground sausage, shredded cheddar cheese, biscuit mix, milk, and optional garlic and onion powder. Mix until well combined.
  3. Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until the sausage balls are golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Serve the sausage balls with your choice of dipping sauces, such as honey mustard or cranberry sauce.

2. Maple Bacon Pancakes:


  • 6 strips of Wilders bacon
  • 2 cups pancake mix
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • Additional maple syrup for drizzling


  1. Cook the bacon in a skillet until it's crispy. Remove it from the skillet, drain on paper towels, and chop it into small pieces.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the pancake mix and water until just mixed. Don't overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  3. Heat a griddle or a large skillet over medium-high heat and lightly grease it.
  4. Pour pancake batter onto the hot griddle to make your desired pancake size.
  5. Sprinkle the chopped bacon evenly over each pancake while it's cooking.
  6. Once the pancakes bubble on the top and the edges look set, flip them and cook until they're golden brown on both sides.
  7. Serve the maple bacon pancakes hot with an extra drizzle of maple syrup.

3. Pinky Link Sausage:


  • Wilders Pinky link sausages (the desired amount)
  • Cooking oil (for pan-frying or grilling)
  • Optional sides: scrambled eggs, toasted English muffins, fruit compote, or apple butter


  1. Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat and add a small amount of cooking oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Place the pinky link sausages in the skillet or on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side or until they're nicely browned and cooked through.
  3. While the sausages are cooking, you can prepare optional sides like scrambled eggs, toast English muffins, or warm fruit compote.
  4. Serve the pinky link sausages with your choice of sides. Enjoy your elegant Christmas breakfast!
