Introduction:Sausages are easy and quick to cook. I've been buying a lot of them lately, to boost my protein intake, but also because the organic butcher across the street makes so many delicious kinds - Italian, Turkey, basil and feta, lamb.
I've found a few fun ways to use up the left overs and turn it into another meal the next day, to say on the cooking time.
An easy, delicious soup, is Caldo Verde, or green soup. It is basically soup stock with onions, garlic, potatoes, cut up sausage (try pork, beef, or anything mild), and something green. Kale is best if you have it, but chard or spinach is fine too. Add the greens at the end until they are wilted. A hearty winter soup.
This one has the same ingredients as Caldo Verde, but it doesn't need the greens for flavor. Instead, add a half cup of cream at the end. Salt to taste.
Cut up the sausage and stir it into some pasta, along with some vegetables (like onion, zucchini, red peppers or mushrooms) for an easy no fuss meal.
Makes an excellent pizza topping. Be sure to chop up the sausage really fine. Sprinkle it on top of your favorite pizza that is need of some already flavored meat. Mild or spicy sausage works well here.
Mild flavored beef, turkey, and even pork sausages make an excellent addition in chili. Cut up the sausage finely and add them to the boiling pot of chili on the stove.
Left over sausages make great quick meals. Just add to any meal that calls for ground meat, or try in soups that require a little something extra. The sausage is already flavored, so you don't have to season it, just add it to pastas, pizza, and soups. Enjoy!
Sausage is a very versatile ingredient which is fairly inexpensive to stock up on. It's the other primo white meat. Sausage roll subs are also great with a side or just alone with toppings.
It helps to use leftovers and I do try to do that.
