probably not what you expect but I like to mix it up around here and try a bit of everything. Today Phil and I decided to try out the mincer and sausage attachment that I bought for our KitchenAid mixer when I was in the US (it was about 20% of what it costs here, can you believe it!)
We've made two types of chicken sausages for dinner tonight (and left overs I'm sure).
The sausage that isn't in links yet in the above photo is chicken, rocket, fetta and toasted pine nuts and the other linked one is chicken, thyme, sage, celery, red onion and apple. I didn't use a recipe - just choosing herbs from the garden and other food we had fresh from the markets this morning. I love all those ingredients so I hope it tastes good all together. We used natural casings that the local butcher gave us for free. To be honest, mincing chicken and using natural casings turned my stomach a bit but I'm sure they will be delicious.
I'm hoping they don't split and explode when we cook them... or turn out too dry? Have you made sausages before? Any tips for us novices? (although Phil and his friends make a great wurst on their annual boys weekend)
Now just to churn some fior di latte gelato for dessert (love my KitchenAid, and no this isn't a sponsored post) and we are all set.
It's pouring rain here so the kitchen seemed like a good place for us.
What have you been up to today?
