Husband Ditches Wife For.......Pan?

Fun Food Friday

It is very true.  Men do take their cooking utensils very seriously.  No sooner had I walked in the door with this pan, my husband snatched it and went right to work on making dinner.  This Nordic Ware Saute Pan is Made in the USAThe good thing about this pan is that it is very versatile. We have made just about everything in it and it washes right off. Love it!
I have to confess.  The picture to the left is staged.  I had to wash the pan after my husband was done cooking and put the cover back on it just to show you our newest purchase.  I didn't get to take a picture of his creation, but I am sharing one my creations here.  I hope you enjoy. 

Sausages, Peas and Onions
  • 2 lbs. sausage
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1 lb. peas (or 2 green peppers, chopped)
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • What To Do:
    1. Bake whole sausages for about 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. 
    2. On medium heat, add oil, water and onions.  (If you are using green peppers instead of peas, add them now too.)  Cook the onions until they are translucent.
    3. Cut the sausages diagonally and add to the pan.  Mix together.
    4. Add the peas at the last minute so they still have some crunch.  Mix together.  Cook for about 5 minutes. 
    5. Serve over brown rice.
    Note: If you are entertaining, make some mashed potatoes.  Line a cupcake tin with the cupcake papers.  Scoop the mashed potatoes in the cupcake papers.  Dice the sausages, onions and green peppers.  Cook as instructed above and then embed them on top of the potatoes.  This makes it easier to eat and mingle.  It's also good for portion control.
    Instead of mashed potatoes, you could also mash plantains in the cupcake holder.  Remove them (still in the shape of the cup).  Fry them.  Put them back in the cupcake tin and top with the sausage mix.
    Happy Eating!
