Lately I have been experimenting and thinking about different ways to present and serve a pork sausage so that the end result is something that looks pleasing when served and leaves an impression taste wise.
A mound of creamy mashed potatoes, not mushy but not too stiff and dry either, two fried or grilled pork bangers served on top the mash with a some fried onion and nice onion flavoured gravy poured over the top – great!!
Fried or grilled pork sausage, a fried egg or two and nice crispy french fries. A nice breakfast you may say. Breakfast yes, but also an equally good lunch or even supper. A cholesterol boost in an instant. Once in a while though it should not be a problem.
What about a brown dog? “Brown dog, what’s that?” you may ask. Try this. Grill or pan fry some nice pork sausages so that they are golden brown. Saute some onions. Add some mushroom if you wish. Slice a baguette roll long ways, you can butter the roll lightly or not. Add some of your favourite mustard to the roll, pop in the sausage, add the onion or the onion and mushroom into the roll, and it’s ready, a brown dog! Add a salad on the side or some french fries, or both. Wonderful!
My wife says I have weird taste buds but I challenge you to try this!!
It is an old German tradition to eat pork and sauerkraut on New Year’s day. Sauerkraut is seen as a sign of longevity, wealth and happiness and it was said “may you have as much wealth and happiness as there are shreds of cabbage in the pot.” Having said this a new firm favourite of mine is warm sauerkraut with a grilled or fried pork banger on top, served with small side of salad and a good mustard. I have only two words to describe this dish “Absolutely awesome!!”
