So when I came back home and had a major craving I hit the stores but couldnt find duck sausages anywhere. Grudgingly I had to settle for Whole food's Smokey Andouille Chicken sausage. Although, I must admit they were really good- they paled in comparison to the crumbly texture of duck...oh well, am sure we'll go back to McKays again someday and when we do...Mr. Duck sausage better be ready to get annihilated (have been hanging around nephews too long!)...
Recipe (serves 2)
1/2 lb chicken sausage (2 gigantic links)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
In a shallow but wide pan fry the sausages till golden brown. Cut lengthwise through the middle invert and fry again to make sure the insides also get a crispy coating. Take sausages out, drain on paper towels till ready to assemble (should be quick).
4 cups of fresh greens
2 cloves garlic minced
salt to taste
Add garlic to the same pan you fried sausages in. Fry for about a minute on low-medium heat. Add spinach and salt and cook till wilted and dark green (about 4 minutes).
For Mashed potatoes:
5 small-medium cooked and peeled red potatoes (cooked in microwave HIGH for 12 mins)
1 1/2 cups of milk
salt and pepper to taste
I wanted bland mashed potatoes so their taste and smell didn't overwhelm all the other flavors, hence the super simple recipe. Bring milk to a boil in a saucepan. Add cooked potatoes and mash till smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. If potatoes seem to thick, add more milk/water.
For mustard sauce:
1 tbsp coarsely ground mustard
1/4 cup Italian dressing
Whisk the two ingredients thoroughly and heat in a saucepan.
I put a layer of mashed potatoes on the plate, then some greens and then added the sausage. Finally topped it off with mustard sauce.
