Inspiration for tonight's dinner please! Only feeding myself and DH. Have potaoes, pasta, rice etc. Anyone have a lovely sausage recipe?!

Are they cooked? You could slice them and add them to cheesy pasta with peas for a quick and easy meal

Juggle them? grin

Do you have any bacon?

I would boil up some rice, and why that's cooking fry off an onion in some oil.Add tinned toms, chopped bacon, mushrooms and anything else you want to use up. When the rice is cooked, add it to the pan along with the cooked sausages.

What about toad in the hole?

Beingblonde Mon 27-Feb-12 17:42:11

They are cooked, yep. Trouble with toad in the hole is that greedy DH would want to eat all 3 sausages so I need to make them go a bit further! Thanks for the good ideas!

Chop onions slice carrots and peel and chop an apple.

Fry off onion and carrots. Fry sausage til browned then bung in the apple and fry for a couple of mind or until you get bored.

Add dry cider or apple juice and a stock cube if you fancy it. Boil til it's reduced or you're too hungry to wait.

Thinken with cornflower if you care enough. Great with jacket potatoes esp.

This is my own recipe that I came up with in desperation and I now bring it out whenever i need something easy and people love it!

Oh bit of dried sage in nice added in too

There was a Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall recipe in the Saturday Guardian using just a few sausages, it will be on their website, I think it was with raw sausages and it is a pasta dish.

Chop them up and fry until browned and serve with pasta, pesto and peas.

Mmm, there is no way you can dress up three sausages into a full sized meal for you and your dh.

I would probably slice them up and heat them through with a can of beans and have on top of jacket potatoes, with cheese.

Or put them in a tomato sauce to have with pasta.

Or do something with vegetables and rice and mushrooms and bacon like wot Bitter&Twisted suggested.

I make 6 sausages feed 6 of us!

De-skin them and bash until they become mince, then fry up with onions, tinned toms, fennel seeds and some cream/creme
fraiche for sausage pasta sauce.

I am doing something similar tonight for DH and I for dinner (although I have chipolatas to use)
I will cook them in oven with chunks of sweet potato, onions, red peppers & mushrooms until all nicely roasted then chop chipolatas into small chunks, and mix in a can of chopped tomatoes and mix all this with some cooked pasta, cover with cheese and bake until cheese is yummy and bubbling!
I quite often make meals for DH and I with very little meat- as long as you pack it out with loads of veg or pulses it will be fine but I think you will need to cut the 3 sausages into chunks to disguise the fact there are only 3 of them!

Beingblonde Mon 27-Feb-12 18:10:35

Yes chopping/bashing the sausages is definitely called for. Bashing the sausage? Between that and my thread title...

bibbityisaporker Mon 27-Feb-12 18:12:15

I don't see how you can bash the sausage(s) as they are already cooked?

BertieBotts Mon 27-Feb-12 18:16:00

Open one end of the skin and you can sort of tease-out meatballs from them. Three should make nine or more if you're careful, depending on the size of the sausages.

BertieBotts Mon 27-Feb-12 18:16:36

Ah okay ignore me - won't work if they are cooked!

Sliced sausage is always nice with pasta and a tomatoey sauce.

Trills Mon 27-Feb-12 18:16:40

3 cooked sausages - um, eat them? Stick them in a sandwich?

vixsatis Mon 27-Feb-12 18:17:54

Chop them up into small bits. Fry an onion until soft. Add a few tomatoes (or a tin) and cook until mushy, then add risotto rice and stir, adding hot water from time to time until you have a risotto. Add a large knob of butter and grate in some parmeasn to serve.

AnonymousBird Mon 27-Feb-12 18:18:44

Some kind of sausage risotto type thing.

Or into a pasta sauce.

AnonymousBird Mon 27-Feb-12 18:20:03

Oh, I'm a bit slow, in the time it took me to type and post several other people have given much more helpful posts on rice/risotto/pasta type combos!

And yes yes to the turn them into meatball type things as well....

pipsy76 Mon 27-Feb-12 18:20:28

carbonara, pasta and broccoli, mix double cream grated cheese and 3 egg yolks add in to the hot pasta with your chopped sausage, delicious! But not too healthy!

MrsWifty Mon 27-Feb-12 18:25:14

Sweat onion, carrot and celery, add peppers and sliced cooked sausages, can of cannellini beans or similar, can of tomatoes, oregano, smoked paprika and cook down. At last minute, add maple syrup and serve with rice (and grated cheese if you're really piggy hungry)

Beingblonde Mon 27-Feb-12 21:10:01

In the end we had pasta and tomatoey sauce with the sliced sausage in, and a good glug of red wine. Mmmm.
