Television Celebrity Chef Rick Tarantino has teamed up with us at Thin ‘n Trim to develop great tasting new recipes for our products and collaborate with us on developing new flavors for a series of healthy, lower salt, low fat chicken sausages.

“We want to help busy consumers out of the food rut of preparing the same meals all the time. These are easy recipes consumers can make in their everyday life and I make sure it will work as well in the consumer’s kitchen as in ours. We really want to highlight the great flavors in these low fat, lower sodium choices.” Chef Rick explains.

You’ll find all his Thin ‘n Trim recipes here on our web site. Some examples include Caramelized Onion and Roast Beef Steak Fries or Ham wrapped Asparagus with Balsamic glaze. Some also include instructional videos featuring Chef Rick.
