Larry doesn’t really like sausage – so I got these all to myself! I found a couple of different ways to prepare them. First I prepared it in a skillet with a little bit of oil and sauteed some peppers with the links. I had them leftover from my Halloween Pizza escapades and needed to use them up…so I threw some in.
This was delicious! The cheese melts inside the sausages and by the time the peppers were sauteed – the sausage was ready. I really enjoyed this one!
Another night – I felt like having dinner like a 7 year old! So I went for Mac & Cheese and a hot dog style eating of the delicious Cheddar Burst smoked sausage. This time I just cooked the link in a little bit of water in a saucepan. It cooks just fine in water as well. I used a little bit of Nathan’s Coney Mustard – it’s seriously THE BEST HOT DOG MUSTARD ON THE PLANET! I found it at Ollie’s or Big Lots and now – I’m addicted!
I’ve also made these in the microwave before – any way is good. I prefer the skillet with oil the best – but if you’re looking to lighten up – the water or microwave works just fine.
I really liked these brats because they did have that extra “smokey” aroma and flavor that some of the smoked sausages are missing. I would definitely buy these again. And I have to say – since my husband doesn’t like sausage – it’s nice they only are in 5-pack – because then I can use them up by myself in a couple of weeks.
At $3.99 – they’re average price for similar products as well – so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank with them.
Curly’s also sent me a coupon for their Pulled BBQ – so that’s burning a hole in my fridge as well. Guess what we’re having for dinner this week!?!
