ITALIAN SAUSAGE · SOUR CREAM · TOMATO
Sauté — medium — IT 160°F
Kielbasa. Brats. Chorizo. Even hot dogs (gasp!). A sausage by any other name is still a crazy convenient way to get dinner on the table. You can even start with a precooked link and save yourself all kinds of time. We’re going precooked Italian here (hot or mild is up to you). Slice at an angle, and sauté over medium heat for about 5 minutes, maybe longer if you like more char. Try to get the cut surface browned on both sides. That’s it. Skip the bun, because you’ve got sour cream—or any other favorite rich creamy thing—for dipping.
(When in doubt, add butter and/or salt.)
