Sausage, Potatoes and Onions

It’s been a very long time since I have made  sausage, potatoes and onions.   It’s simple, it’s delicious, it’s a great one pot meal.

Ingredients for Sausage, Potatoes and Onions
  1. 5-6 Italian sausage (hot or mild)
  2. 6-7 medium red potatoes, skin on
  3. 1-2 large Onions, thinly sliced
  4. Salt & Pepper to taste
  5. 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  6. 2 Tbs butter softened & 2 Tbs flour
  7. 1 cup chix stock or water
  8. Chopped parsley for garnish
  9. Sour Cream (optional)
Directions for Sausage, Potatoes and Onions

In a large stock pot cook the sausage on medium heat until they begin to lightly brown.  Remove them one at a time and cut into coin slices and return to pan to continue to cook.

Once the sausage is nicely browned add the onions and potatoes and cook until the onions begin to brown and soften.

Add the chicken stock and pepper flakes, cover the pot and on medium heat continue to cook until the potatoes are cooked through.

Just before serving mix the softened butter and flour into a roux, bring the pot up to a boil add the roux and stir until the stock thickens.

Stuffed Mushrooms

This is another is a small series of my favorite appetizer, the stuffed mushroom.  This recipe is for large cap mushrooms about 10 to a pound.  If you are making more add to the recipe and if you are using smaller caps with longer stems reduce the amount of chopped up stems.

Ingredients for Stuffed Mushrooms

  1. 1# (appox 10 silver dollar size) Mushroom, stems removed
  2. 1 sweet italian sausage link(casing removed)
  3. 1 finely chopped shallot
  4. 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  5. 8 – 10 crushed saltines crackers
  6. 2-3 tbs grated Parmesan cheese
  7. Olive oil
  8. Salt & pepper

Directions for Stuffed Mushrooms

Carefully remove the stems from the mushrooms.  Place them in a small food processor with the shallot and garlic and chop fine. Remove to a bowl.

In the processor now finely chop the saltines and once done remove to a bowl.

Clean by brushing the mushroom caps and lightly cover in Olive oil.  Set aside.

In a frying pan brown the sausage.  Once browned place in the processor and chop finely, put back in the pan and add the shallot and garlic and mushrooms with a little Olive oil and cook until the shallot in wilted and most of the liquid is cooked out of the mushrooms.

Place in a bowl add the saltines and Parmesan and about a teaspoon each of salt and pepper and stir to combine all the ingredients.  If the mixture is too dry to form  a ball add a little more Olive oil.

Using a scoop or teaspoon  stuff the caps with the bread mixture. Place the finished caps into a baking pan.

When ready to cook place in a 400° oven for about 25 – 30 minutes until the caps begin to lightly brown.

Serving suggestions:

For a main course serve with Hollandaise.

Stuffed Peppers

I often use stuffed peppers as a way of using up an abundance of left over rice.  This time however I had peppers that were going to need some attention soon, so I cooked extra rice to use.  I usually incorporate chopped meat to the mix, however as Robbie Burns said “The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley” and I found I didn’t have any chopped meat available.  So for this recipe I used sweet Italian sausage and it came out great.

Ingredients for Stuffed Peppers

This recipe will stuff about 8 – 10 medium sized peppers.

  1. 5-6 sweet Italian sausage links removed from casings
  2. 2 Tbs butter
  3. 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  4. 2 stalks of celery finely chopped
  5. 1 medium sweet onion finely chopped
  6. 2 tsp crushed peperoncino
  7. ¼ cup crushed tomato with basil
  8. 1½ cups (approximate) cooked rice
  9. 20 oz additional crushed tomato ( approximate)
  10. 4-5 Tbs Parmesan cheese
  11. salt and pepper to taste
  12. ¼-½ cup grated cheese of choice for topping

Directions for Stuffed Peppers

Begin with the peppers.

Bring water to boil in a large stock pot.

Take the peppers and cut the tops off as high as possible on the pepper, carefully remove the seeds and white ribs from the inside.  If the peppers are too tippy cut a very little slice from the bottom so they sit upright.   Place the peppers into the boiling water and blanch for about two minutes.  If all the peppers can’t be submerged at once, boil in batches. Once blanched remove from the water to a colander to drain and cool.

In a sauté pan that is not non-stick begin to cook the celery and onion and garlic until softened.  Add the sausage and cook breaking up the sausage with a fork or knife until you have very small pieces of sausage that are almost completely cooked.  Add the ¼ cup of crushed tomato and the pepper flakes and cook for a few more minutes.

In a separate bowl place the rice and stir to break up any clumps.  Add the cooked sausage mixture combine and then begin to add additional crushed tomato until you have a moist well combined mixture.  Add the Parmesan.  Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Fill the peppers with the stuffing and place in a baking dish.  Cover with aluminum foil.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Bake in the center of the oven covered for about 30 minutes.  Remove the foil and sprinkle grated cheese of your choice over the top of each pepper, you can use Parmesan, Mozzerella, Provolone, Asiago or what ever you feel will go .  Bake an additional 15- 30 minutes until the cheese is melted, the peppers are soft, and the stuffing is hot.

Serve as is or with sour cream or creme fraiche on the side.
