Which Sausage Should I Use?

In such a simple recipe, every single ingredient you use matters, but none more so than the sausages you select. With so much riding on your sausages, buy the best you can find. As for the style of sausages you use, that is totally up to your tastebuds. Here are some types of sausages you might want to try:

  • Smoked Kielbasa Sausage. This sausage style is originally from Poland and has a mild flavor. It is perfect for serving kids or anyone who doesn’t appreciate spicy sausages. Some brands label their kielbasa just as ‘Polish Sausage.’
  • Andouille Sausage. Although associated with Cajun and Creole cooking, andouille sausage is right at home in this recipe. It is loaded with spice and provides a powerful kick to your peppers and onions.
  • Tajín Sausages from Hillshire Farms. Tajín is a favorite seasoning in Mexico made from dried chile peppers, dehydrated lime juice, and sea salt. Tajín-flavored sausages are great for adding an authentic south-of-the-border flavor to your sausage and peppers.

Although this recipe calls for smoked sausages, you don’t have to feel limited in your sausage selection. You can substitute fresh varieties like sweet or hot Italian sausages, as long as you precook them. Try this cooking method to keep your sausages from overcooking the outside while leaving the middle raw.

Place raw sausages in a medium saucepan. Fill with cold water to barely cover them. Put on the stove over medium-high heat just until the water begins to simmer. Remove the sausages and cut them as you wish. Heat oil in a pan over high and carefully put the cooked sausages into the pan. Cook until they turn a nice golden brown.

If you want, you can use chicken, turkey, or even vegetarian sausages in this recipe.

Tips for Cooking Serving Sausage and Peppers

  • Turn it into a sausage sandwich. Nothing could be easier, but remember that bad bread makes a lousy sandwich. To make the best sausage sandwich, use a good Italian roll or toast softer bread to help it hold up better. If you plan on making sausage, peppers and onions sandwiches from the start, keep your sausages in larger pieces.
  • Fancy up store-bought tomato sauce. Pasta with sausage, peppers and onions? Yes, please! Cut up any pieces that won’t fit comfortably on a fork before adding them to your tomato sauce and heating on the stove and serving over your favorite pasta.
  • Try creating your new sausage and peppers recipes. Add some of your favorite vegetables. Cubed and sauteed potatoes or giardiniera (Italian pickled vegetables) are both great additions.
