An eggs and sausages breakfast tip

sausages-eggs-breakfast

One of my favorite breakfasts — eggs and sausages. Well-browned spicy sausages and fried eggs, sunny side up, to be more accurate. Spicy sausages? Yes, garlicky and hot, if available. Not canned Vienna sausages nor hotdogs, definitely, but real sausages. The Italian and Spanish kind are really the best. Among local sausages, it’s Vigan or Lucban longganisa for me — none of those sweet varieties that are a pain to cook because the sugar burns before the meat is properly done. And what is the eggs and sausages breakfast tip? It’s about how to cook the eggs for maximum flavor. Cook the eggs in the same pan where you cooked the sausages, in the fat rendered by the sausages… (more)

Today's brunch consisted of sausages and eggs. But not fried like they're usually served. This fast-cooking, tasty meal has everything in it, including a generous amount of vegetable, and it is cooked a la oyakodon -- with eggs, lightly stirred, and a little sauce. It's a little salty, subtly sweet and very tasty. Simple to … »

Alex came home in the middle of the week and, after a good night's sleep, I prepared a very hearty brunch to help her recharge. She was going back to school the following day and I only had one day to pamper her. I made a quick angel hair pasta, her favorite, and some savory muffins. I had two pieces of Vigan longganisa in … »

Sausage, pasta, tomato and cabbage soup

sausage-pasta-soup

A one-pot dish that's a breeze to prepare. The sausage meat makes the broth rich in taste while the vegetables and pasta make the soup very filling. Serve it as a first course and you don't have to follow it up with a heavy meat dish. Best of all, it's so rustic and comforting it almost feels like having a meal in a shaded … »

Sausage and milk pasta

Everyone in my family has cough and cold. I thought it was plain exhaustion.

braised-beef-kneecap

I don't know in how many parts of the world people eat beef kneecap but, in the Philippines, it is quite a delicacy. And when I say kneecap, I don't really mean the bony cap itself (although that's part of the whole enchilada) but the meat, the tendons and the fat surrounding it.Cooked by itself, it is already so … »

Tripe, sausage and chickpea soup

tripe-chickpea-soup

This is a tomato-based soup quite similar to the tomato soup with tripe and sausage but with a few significant differences. First, the ox tripe and knuckles were pressure-cooked to save time and fuel. Second, I used glorious, glorious Vigan longganisa, a present from Alex who went on a field trip to Ilocos about three weeks … »

pasta-bacon-sausage

I hope you're still not tired of pasta aglia e olio yet because I'm still discovering so many wonderful variations. Apart from the basic spaghetti aglia e olio, I've cooked a variation with sun-dried tomatoes and, more recently, with mussels on the half shell. This time, I took the variation with sun-dried tomatoes a step … »

In About Chinese sausages, I asked how you readers like to cook them and there was a comment that stood out. While most, myself included, fry Chinese sausages or include them in stir fried dishes, reader Marilyn wrote about steaming them with chicken. It made me pause but then I realized it really wasn't all that … »
