CdA Dressing Co. adds new seasonings

Wed., June 15, 2011, midnight

The Coeur d’Alene Dressing Co. has added some new products to its line of condiments and seasonings.

Make your own sausage at home with any ground meat, game or poultry and one of the new meat seasonings, including Sweet Italian Sausage Blend, Hot Italian Sausage Blend and Breakfast Sausage Blend.

The seasonings can be rubbed on meat before cooking or grilling, or used to season foods from spaghetti sauce or fried potatoes, say owners Don and Peggy Alderman.

The new seasonings join the Hickory Sweet Rub, released last year, which has a similar flavor to barbecue potato chips.

The seasonings are made with sea salt and premium spices and do not contain monosodium glutamate. Each package will season 10 to 15 pounds of ground meat. The products are hand-mixed in small batches at a commercial kitchen in Sandpoint.

Coeur d’Alene Dressing Co. products can be found in the meat department of many stores in the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area, along with the popular Caramelized Onion Grilling and Glazing Sauce. Dressings can be found in many area produce departments. They’ve been on the market since 1996.

The company’s products and recipes also can be found online at Call (800) 687-1462 for more information.
