Are you a sausage fan? If so, have you tried the new Hillshire Farm Gourmet Creations sausage varieties? We like to do breakfast for supper two or three times a month because it’s easy to prepare and easier on the budget too! So we eat sausage several times a month, if not for breakfast (or breakfast for supper) then we really like to use it in place of meatballs with pasta or we grill them up until a little crispy on the outside in the rotisserie oven and serve’m up on a bun.
I’m excited to have had the opportunity to shop for and try out the Hillshire Farm Gourmet Creations sausage and was a little surprised by the varieties that are available. You can choose from beef and jalapeno with monterey jack cheese, beef and bacon with monterey jack cheese, sweet Italian style with peppers and mozzarella cheese, or chicken apple sausage with gouda cheese. Being a firm believer that everything is better with bacon, the choice was easy for me!
We easily extended the package of four sausages into a meal for our family of seven by cutting them into coins which we then fried up in a pan and served with this whole grain linquine.
Of course it’s nearly impossible to make all five kids happy at one time so some of us had the linquine and sausage in a light herb and olive oil sauce, while the rest had theirs with a tomato based pasta sauce from a jar.
While it’s usually pretty difficult for me to tell the difference between one variety of sausage and another once its cooked, I’ve gotta say that the beef and bacon variety of Gourmet Creations from Hillshire Farm was the BEST.SAUSAGE.EVER! There was just a hint of bacon and cheese in the sausage, enough to taste but not overwhelm and we all really enjoyed the flavor!
