Hello and Welcome again to Welch's Blog. We are going to start posting a Blog on Wednesday's with a some info on meat and a recipe to go with it!
We will start today with a little talk about the many ways to prepare Italian Sausage. Italian Sausage is a meat that consists of Ground Pork and Italian Spices mixed together and either left in bulk, made into patties or stuffed into a sausage casing.
There are many ways to use Italian Sausage for your meal, whether as the main dish or in sauces.
Here are some examples:
* Cook Sausage in casing on stove, grill or oven and add peppers and onions with a red sauce and serve on a bun.
* Cook Sausage in casing or patty and serve on a bun with sauteed Peppers, Onion and Mushrooms
*Make a "Pizza Burger" which consists of a Italian Sausage patty covered with pizza sauce and Mozzarella Cheese. (And veggies if you like)
* Italian Sausage is also great for using with pizza, spaghetti sauces, lasagna, mostaccioli, and many other Italian dishes.
Here is a easy slow cooker recipe that is nice for (unfortunately) a back to school meal:
8 links of Italian Sausage
1 26oz. jar spaghetti sauce
1 bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
1 onion sliced
Place the Italian Sausage links, spaghetti sauce, green pepper and onion into a slow cooker.
Stir to coat everything in sauce. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours.
Serve on your choice of roll or bun.
**Also great topped with mozzarella cheese**
