Over the weekend, my friends came over to celebrate a few birthday parties. We celebrated a trio of birthdays, Henry, Anna, and myself!
The theme of the party was a sausages, so I made recipes that included sausage, or was “sausage shaped”. Some of the recipes didn’t include sausage, but everything was delicious, so it didn’t matter.
Here are most of the things I made.
Pigs in a blanket
Using a store bought tube of croissants, cut each triangle of dough in half and wrap each mini dog from the wide side in. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top. (the ones pictured are raw)
Hoisin five spice chicken wings
I used this recipe, baked at 425° for 30 minutes.
Oven roasted potatoes
Chinese sausage fried rice with shrimp
Using this basic recipe, cook the Chinese sausage before adding rice. Set aside, cook rice and remaining ingredients. Add shrimp and peas at the end.
Kielbasa and sauerkraut
Italian sausages on a roll
Beer brats with onions on a hero
Place dozen brats, a sliced onion, and a little butter in a single layer in a pot. Add enough beer to cover. Bring to a boil, then simmer until cooked. Transfer to grill or skillet and cook until brown. Place back in the beer to serve. I served these like the Italian sausages on heroes. (the Italian sausage heroes is what is really pictured, but you get the idea)
