I like to eat some of the freshest food possible, as it really makes a noticeable difference in my health. For dinner, I thought I would cook some sausage, mixed with Peppers and Onions. This recipe is one of the first things I learned how to cook, and was taught to me by my father. The ingredient list is simple: Sausage, Onions, Peppers, and a Bun. While cooking it, I decided I would post this recipe. It took me a long time to pick up cooking skills, so I hope it helps someone out there with theirs.
The first step was pretty simple: Follow the directions on the package. Here is the basic version: In a non-stick skillet, combine with half a cup of water, 1 tablespoon of oil and sausage. Bring to a boil, reduce to medium heat and cover the skillet. Simmer for 12 minutes. Simple enough, this will cook the meat to the manufactures specifications.
I added a step, as shown to me: Remove the sausage from the pan, turn the heat off, wash out the pan, and place it back on the burner. Add 1/3 stick of butter, turn the heat back to medium-low. Add in sliced peppers, onions and the sausage. Stir it occasionally to keep if from sticking. This added step will brown up the sausage, and encourage flavors from the veggies to flow into the sausage. When the sausage is brown, and the onions have a darker color, it’s done.
You could also add in Spaghetti Sauce while cooking, for a different flavor. This makes a wonderful topping for hot dogs if you leave out the sausage.
Next you can choose to either eat it as is, or add it to a bun. I choose the later option, and added Provolone cheese to the mix.
This particular meal produced five sausage sandwiches, and if I didn’t have to buy the Green Pepper, the total cost would have been $6.76. Not bad !
