i’ve been in a food rut this week. i’m not in the “mood” for anything. i feel like i’ve made everything on food network, used everything in my cookbooks, so i sat down and tried to think of what my momma used to make. this is a recipe i remember my momma making from time to time. as you can guess she would always use an electric skillet. well i’m fresh out of electric skillets so a nonstick fryingpan is going to be my pan of choice.the key with this dish is to get a nice brown crispness on the sausage, but keep the oil in the pan to use it to coat the egg noodles with. this isn’t a fancy dish, something that can be thrown together in 30 minutes or less. so if you’re in need of a quick weeknight meal, give this one a try, i promise it will hit the spot.
from me two you,
electric skillet turkey sausage
1/2 C. vegetable oil
1 turkey kielbasa – sliced into rounds
1 bell pepper – chopped into strips
1 medium onion – chopped
1 clove garlic – minced finely
2 T. worchestire sauce
1 T. brown spicy mustard
1 T. parsley – dried is fine
2 C. egg noodles – uncooked
cook 2 C. of egg noodles according to package directions.
using a non stick skillet heat oil on medium heat.
once sausages are sliced, i try to slice mine on a diagonal to get them more crispy, place sausages into heated oil and brown on both sides.
once brown, remove sausages from pan, but leave drippings in pan.
add diced peppers and onion into pan and saute until vegetables are tender.
once vegetables are cooked remove from pan, but leave drippings in pan. if you find you don’t have much oil , add in a few tablespoons.
using a whisk add worchestire, mustard, chopped garlic, and parsley.
add peppers, onions, and sausages into sauce and let simmer on low for 5 minutes. if you find the sausages looking dry add a few tablespoons of water .
once pasta is cooked add pasta to sausage pan and toss well to coat noodles with sauce.
serve warm and enjoy.
