It's been freezing over the whole of Europe recently; we've even had a couple of overnight temperatures of around -7 C.
So, dear 'George' (our wood fired kitchen stove) has been permanently ablaze, and pumping out heat for a couple of weeks or more.
This means that long, slow-cooked, stews, and baked potatoes, are almost permanently on the go as well as another simple winter favourite; oven roasted sausage.
I've never really understood why it should be, but oven roasted sausage tastes so completely different (and better) than pan-fried.
The above, as you can see, was consumed with the obligatory baked potatoes; plus a few straggler sprouts from Haddock's. Simple country fare, but you can't get much better.
That looks YUMMY! And simple country fare is best, I think. :)ReplyDelete
Perfect winter comfort food! I agree about roasting sausages. Definitely different - and better - than frying them. I like to cook bacon in the oven rather than the pan as well.ReplyDelete
Wow! That looks yummy. We bought a very yummy sausage on a bagette with frits on top at a market last time we were in France. We're still talking about it!ReplyDelete
But ..... there seems to be a lot of sausage (and potato for that matter !) there for two people but I guess your body needs lots of energy to keep warm??
I wondered if someone would remark about the quantity. We ate our fill last night, then I kept some back for a Cassoulet for tonight, and possibly for tomorrow.Delete
Yum. Simple and tasty, my kind of fare.ReplyDelete
Blimey. I'm starving! I am cutting down on booze and food to get myself into shape again. First I get Helsie's magnificent looking high tea and now your mouthwatering sausages! I thnk I'll go and gnaw on a chicken bone...ReplyDelete
utterly delicious....I have a friend who lives near Rodez so uber handy for cheap flights who always does what my son used to call 'round sausage' when I go visit...... am inspired to go visit very soon!!ReplyDelete
Never thought of roasting sausage in the oven, but will give it a go. Vege always tastes sweater when roasted. Liked the round pan for it.ReplyDelete
Is that the dogs telling us about the shaushages?....then they must be good!ReplyDelete
You can't beat a solid fuel stove for cooking. I use my Rayburn oven constantly - does things so much better.ReplyDelete
I'll bet the rosemary adds just the right touch.ReplyDelete
Hey Cro what kind of trap did you use to catch that ?ReplyDelete
As good as it gets, by my accounting!ReplyDelete
This kind of cooking is just the best.ReplyDelete
