I asked the boys to help with meal planning this week, T’s first choice was Italian Sausage Sliders.
I sliced up several potatoes about a quarter inch thick, then I fried them up in some sausage fat in the fry pan to use for buns, because we are a gluten free household we often have to come up with alternative solutions for bread. I have also used sweet potatoes for this meal and they are even better.
I served this with oven fries and a salad. I heated the oven to 475 degrees while I washed and sliced up the potatoes. I soaked the potatoes for about 10 minutes and dried them with a cloth then put them in the pan with olive oil, salt and pepper and stirred them around in the pan. I baked them for 20 minutes, stirred them and baked them for another 20 minutes. They were crispy on the outside and yummy soft on the inside.
I forgot to take the sausage out early enough so I sliced my slightly frozen sausage and cooked it the size and shape it came out, normally I would try to make them about the size of the potatoes that we were using for buns before I cooked them.
I served them with some homemade mustard pickles, (I have to admit they aren’t as good as my Nanny used to make, I will try again this summer. ) and ketchup. They were delicious!
The salad was leftover from the day before, it had lettuce, kale, swiss chard, basil, cilantro, and sheep sorrel in it, all from the farm. I dressed it with Olive oil and balsamic vinegar (this is the best balsamic vinegar I have found, I have tried to buy it in bulk from our local stores, but it has been less expensive on amazon. Don’t be fooled, it must be the reserve bottle, not the regular bottle, I can usually find the regular bottle at the store.
This was a delicious meal, every one enjoyed eating it!
