Try this, I promise you'll love it.

Italian sausage....this fine mixture of meat and spices is a staple of out household. We enjoy it at least once a week. My usual method is to fry it until almost cooked and then finish it off in a pot of tomato sauce.

The other day I was thinking of another way to prepare this satisfying delicacy and came up with this. I removed the casing from a link of sausage... flattened it out rather thinly...dipped it in bread crumbs...than egg...then back into the bread crumb...and fried it in a pan until golden brown. I placed the sausage in a oven proof dish, put tomato sauce on it, topped it with several cheeses and baked it until the cheese melted....a big hit indeed.


Italian sausage parmigiana...A little advise use good Italian sausage, and "don't" use flavored bread crumbs, please season them yourself.



I fished a small stream last week and found this beautiful waterfall....enjoy.

  1. I'm surprised this is not on a restaurant menu somewhere. This could be your ticket to fame and fortune.

    (and a tasty heart attack!)

      Ben if you see on a menu please tell them who originated it.
      The heart attack is neutralized by a fine glass of Italian red.

  10. Can I ask what makes a good Italian sausage? Or can you at least give hints as to how to avoid the bad stuff? I've always wanted to fry some up (patty style) on my Camp CHef griddle with breakfast. Thanks!

      Chris, good sausage should be pure pork, and spices..no corn syrup, water, or anything else you can't say. The meat should be ground rather coarse, and have a natural casing.

    And now I'm not going to get to sleep thinking about this dish.
