bluemoon downunder's Note:
My adaptation of one of several "sizzling sausages" recipes in this week's issue of the Australian magazine 'New Idea'. The cooking editor - Barbara Notrhwood - says "Embrace the great Aussie tradition! Throw a snag on the barbie this summer and whip up one of these tasty, budget-friendly meals". A snag BTW is an Australian slang term for a sausage. I'd certainly be interested to know if the term is used anywhere else in the world! This recipe she's costed as $A2.55 a serve. She includes "chips, to serve" which I've omitted. My other changes wouldn't make an appreciable difference to the costing. By any reckoning, a tasty, budget-conscious, 2009-savvy recipe.
My Private Note
Beef Sa ...
Units: US | Metric
- 4 thick beef sausages
- 1/4 cup tomato chutney
- 1/4 cup tasty cheese, grated
- 4 long crispy bread rolls (I recommend ciabatta)
- 1 tomato, halved, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cucumber, peeled if your cucumber is not a thin-skinned variety, thinly sliced (optional)
- baby spinach leaves, to serve
- sea salt, to taste (optional)
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste (optional)
- basil, &
- 1/2 cup whole egg mayonnaise
- 2 -3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest, finely grated
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
- sea salt, to taste
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 1To make the Basil & Lemon Mayonnaise, place all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir until they are well-combined; set aside while you cook the sausages.
- 2Cook the sausages under a medium to hot grill, turning occasionally, until they have browned all over and are cooked right through, or if it's summer and you have a BBQ, bung them on the barbie (Aussie for "put them on the barbecue").
- 3Cut lengthways slits in the sausages, three-quarters of the way through; divide the chutney evenly among the sausages (in the slits) and sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the chutney.
- 4Return the sausages to the grill (or the barbie) and cook them for a further 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
- 5Cut the rolls lengthways in half, being careful not to cut them all the way through; spread the cut sides with the Basil & Lemon Mayonnaise; divide the tomato slices (and cucumber slices if you're using cucumber) between the rolls; add the optional salt and pepper (if using) on the tomato (and cucumber) slices, sausages and baby spinach leaves evenly between the rolls; and serve.
