HAPPY LAZY SAUSAGE FEAST
|Here’s an easy meal idea that’s great if you’ve
got lots of people coming around and you can’t be bothered
to spend ages cooking something complicated for them. This stuff
is good for parties or as something that’ll keep warm
for a long time - so it won’t matter if your ungrateful
guests come late.
- Tinned beans. Tins of baked beans in tomato sauce would be OK,
but a better idea would be tins of mixed beans in tomato sauce.
Allow at least half a tin per person.
- Sausages. Go to the sausage shelf in any good supermarket and
you’ll find all sorts of different and exciting flavours
of sausage. There’ll be traditional pork ones and also:
pork and leak ones, garlicky ones, pork with apple ones, and chilli
ones. There are all sorts of sausage on this planet and this is
your opportunity to broaden that small part of your brain that
is dedicated solely to sausage experimentation. So buy a mixture
of lots of different types of sausages and allow at least 3 sausages
- Tabasco sauce.
- Parsley, (optional). If you intend to eat HAPPY LAZY SAUSAGE
FEAST at the high table, garnish with some chopped parsley coz
it’ll make it look this dish look posh & cute, (instead
of messy & grungy).
Grill the sausages in the way that you normally grill sausages.
If you’ve never cooked a sausage before, wash your handies
and do this ..........
Make sure that your sausages aren’t frozen. It they are
frozen, defrost them.
|1. Turn your grill on full blast.
2. Take your sausages out of the packet & cut them into single
(you’ll need to do this if they are part of a string of sausages).
3. Lay your sausages on the rack of a grill pan and prick each of
them a few times with a fork.
4. When the grill is really fiery hot, put the grill pan (with its
sausages) under the heat so that the tops of the sausages are about
6-7 cms away from the source of the heat.
5. As the sausages brown on each side, turn them over so that they
brown on their raw sides. (A knife and fork are easiest for this job).
6. Your sausages will take about 15 minutes to completely cook. They
ready when they look like the cooked sausages that you have been eating
for all your life until this point in time.
|When the sausages are cooked, cut each one into four or five pieces
Meanwhile, gently heat as many cans of beans as you think you’re
need. You’ll need a large pan for this. Heat gently the beans
and stir from time to time with a wooden spoon. Don’t let them
boil because, if you do, they lose their flavour. (Don’t ask
me why, they just do, OK?). If they do boil, that’s tough -
but they won’t poison you.
When the beans are hot and the sausages are cooked and sliced,
sausagey bits to the cauldron of beans and stir it all together.
Also, add some
Tabasco sauce coz this really seems to pep up the taste of beans.
And that’s it. Serve by ladling the sausagey-beany mixture
into bowls and
garnish with chopped parsley (if you seriously think that anyone’s
going to care).
||You could serve this stuff with hot garlic bread
or even a mixed salad (find out how to make salad dressing by
following the BEST SALAD DRESSING IN THE WORLD recipe that is
elsewhere in this section). Basically, HAPPY LAZY SAUSAGE FEAST
is unpretentious nosh for people who expect to be well largered
within a couple of hours of eating it.
Don’t expect any thank-you notes the next morning coz drunks
never remember or appreciate their last supper before they get hammered.
This might be a good opportunity to dig out your video camera and
film your guests eating, so that you can remind them at a later date
