The story of Bill’s famous

homemade Italian Sausage

When national food companies heard about Bill’s homemade Italian sausage, they tried to buy the recipe, but Bill wouldn’t sell it. Instead, he made the sausage a featured item on the Delavan’s menu. It took Bill months to perfect just the right mix of herbs, spices and lean meat that gives Bill’s homemade Italian sausage just the right savory finish.
