Sausage and Asparagus Bowl

Last week, I shared a quick, easy meal using chicken sausage.

Last night I needed another easy meal so I made a variation of that dish. This time I used beer brats in place of the chicken sausage. It’s what I had in my freezer.

I love these kinds of meals because it’s a great way to use up what you have. And it can easily be a one-pot meal. Less fuss. Less mess.

Sausage Bowls

Sausage bowlsI started by slicing them into little rounds but ended up cutting them with kitchen scissors. It was easier to get through the casing without all the insides spilling out.Sausage bowlThen I fried them up in a little EVOO, careful not to crowd the cast iron pan.Sausage bowlI fried them in batches, removing them to a plate.Sausage bowlWhen all the meat was cooked,  I added sliced onions to the pan with the sausage drippings. Sausage bowlGave them a good stir and let them caramelize a bit. Sausage bowlThen, because I had them, I added a seeded and chopped jalapeno to add a bit of heat. Let that soften a bit before adding the next thing. Sausage bowlAnd some chopped asparagus, because, again, I had it and needed to use it up. I could easily have added other veggies such as chopped cabbage, broccoli or peppers.After a few minutes, I added the sausage back in and gave everything a good stir. I tasted it and added just a bit of salt. Don’t you just love all the crunchy bits of sausage?! I do!I must admit: it was tasty! Easy and yummy! A winner in my book!

  1. That looks so good and so doable on a week night after work. I have never cooked asparagus but need to grow up and preparing it. Could make a meal out of that pan of grilled onions. YUM!
