    August 18, 2011 by AmazinglyWonderful

    See title to figure out why this recipe exists 🙂



    uncooked Italian Sausage links

    olive oil


    The Doing

    Keeping the shape of the link intact, remove from casing. (I do it by carefully cutting down the length of the link with a sharp knife)

    cut links into chuncks so that the length is proportional to the width

    pan fry

    add to your fave dish!

    Heat the olive oil in a skillet

    Brown the chops

    “Serve With” ideas

    a rice or a potato side (anything that would appreciate yummy gravy)





  3. Onion BBQ Chicken

    August 18, 2011 by AmazinglyWonderful

    I came up with this recipe on the drive to the store, and “refined” it while I was cooking it.



    – bone-in skin-on chicken thighs

    – BBQ sauce of choice (we used Sweet Baby Ray’s Raspberry Chipotle)

    – onion, chopped

    – Worcestershire sauce

    – jam/jelly of choice

    – butter/olive oil

    – salt & pepper


    The Doing

    Ina pot, heat the butter and/or olive oil.  Season the rinsed chicken and add, skin side down to the heated pan.

    Brown both sides of the chicken.

    remove chicken to plate, dump most of the grease

    Add onions to pot, when almost translucent, put chicken back in pot.

    Pour BBQ sause over each thigh.

    Add a few dashes of Worcestershire to each thigh

    Add around a tp of the jam to each thigh.

    Cover pot and cook for 10 minutes, moving the ot around every so often to move the chicken around.

    Once chicken is fully cooked, remove to plate (and be sure to use all that yummy sauce!!!)


    “Serve With” ideas

    a rice or a potato side (anything that would appreciate THAT SAUCE!)

    a salad (like the yummy Publix True Blu)
