SHEBOYGAN FALLS, Wis. – Johnsonville Sausage has added two new flavors to its line of Griller gourmet pork burgers in time for National Burger Month.
Cheddar Cheese & Bacon and Swiss Cheese & Mushroom flavors are made of fresh pork and a unique blend of herbs and spices, according to the company. The product retails for $8.99 and comes with six, one-third lb. burgers per package. Other flavors include Cheddar Bratwurst, Mild Italian Sausage and Original Bratwurst.
"Consumers very much enjoy grilled burgers, but are challenged recently as beef costs have risen over 50 percent in the past few years," said Bruce Johnson, senior brand manager. "We've created these Johnsonville Grillers to address the traditional frozen burger shortcomings of dry and low flavor by providing a flavorful, moist gourmet alternative that also delivers the value and convenience that consumers appreciate.”
