Chicken Apple Sausage Patties – Doesn’t Feel Like Chicken

Imagine a sausage patty made from chicken that’s just as tender, juicy, and flavorful as one made from pork. What? A not-dry, not-rubbery feeling chicken-based sausage? Sounds impossible, and it is, unless you sneak in a little bit of pancetta, and follow a few simple techniques. Instead of buying ground chicken at the market, which is always too finely ground, …

Homemade Italian Sausage – I Was the Uncle Bill of My Slow Casing Fill

The last time I remember making sausage was with my Uncle Billy many years ago, who was doing his famous dried Italian sausage for Christmas Eve. By the way, I said “making,” but for the record I actually meant mostly watching. Anyway, this fresh version is inspired by those, and while we loved how they came out, I’m kicking myself …

Seafood Sausage – Behold, the Rarest of All the Sausages

This seafood sausage recipe is one of those dishes you learn in culinary school, and then never make in a restaurant, the rest of your career. Unlike your more common meat-based sausages, which are made from assorted scraps, and you really don’t want to know, these seafood sausages need pristine product to shine, thereby eliminating the money-saving incentive of making …

Building a Better Sausage Roll One Bite at a Time

I used to work for a caterer back in the 80’s, and sausage rolls were one of our signature appetizers. I loved them, the guests loved them, and so it never occurred to me that there was another, vastly superior, way to make them. We used to bake the rolls first, and then cut them into bite-sized pieces, but years …

Pasta with Sausage Cream Sauce

The thing I love about this recipe is that it’s not only delicious and easy, but I can let it simmer on the stove for quite some time until I’m ready to serve dinner. That makes it agood pot luck or buffet dish. The addedcream is a nice flavor change from thetraditional pasta sauce.  I used bulk Italian sausage, but youcan use links and remove the casing.  Saute the onions and …

Sausage Pie

OK, so the title doesn’t sound THAT appealing, right? There’s just no good name for this dish! It is beyond delicious though. And you can make it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The original recipe calls for ground beef, kind of making it a play on a cheeseburger, but sausage sounded SO much better. It’s sure to please adults and …

Italian Sausage Pasta

I saw a form of this on Pinterest, and knew I needed to make it. The original was kind of a spicy Mexican dish, but I thought it would be better Italian style. Our family LOVED this dish!! The best part to me was that it took about 25 minutes to make and it’s ALL IN ONE PAN! I needed …

Effortless Fennel, Sausage & Tomato Tray-Bake

No one in my family likes fennel.  Or at least they didn’t until last weekend, when I set out to change their minds by making this tray-bake brimming with lovely fresh fennel, snappy pork chipolatas, shallots and dear little carrots. Roasting vegetables concentrates their flavours and brings out the sweetness in shallots, carrots and fennel. My husband, who loathes the taste …

Sausage, Pumpkin, Potato and Halloumi Tray-Bake

A garlicky tray-bake in jewel colours that doesn’t take long to put together and tastes gorgeous, especially if you finish it off – wickedly – with halloumi cheese and a handful of fresh basil leaves. I often make all-in-one tray-bakes for family dinners – usually with chicken and veggies – because they’re easy, and involve so little washing up. This …
