I didn’t realize the name of this recipe is a scant misleading until after I typed it just now. It’s filling like a casserole, but all it takes is a frying pan and a few minutes until you’ve prepared yourself a meal that is sure to lead to a nap.
Brakk and I thoroughly enjoy cooking with each other. It’s a grand adventure that always ends with something deliciously white-trash on our plates. It’s a relationship building exercise because the kitchen is one of the many places we both want to take full charge. There’s a bay leaf incident that still cracks us up when we think of it yet likewise it’s a solemn milestone in our relationship. For a while now we’ve been throwing around a couple of ideas when cooking:
Writing down in the form of recipes our favorite concoctions
Using our cook time together as blog posts, pairing reading material with the dish we’re cooking and eating (we’re going to be expanding our library of short story authors)
When Brakk made this last night for dinner it was scrumptious. I have a cold, so the spices he used helped me breath and I was able to taste it when everything else seems so bland. Another bonus about these meal, we’re poor, so it’s fairly cheap. When he asked me today if I would write down the recipe I figured a blog post was the natural evolution.
I didn’t think to time him when he made this. ‘Till it’s done seems fitting
5 pack of hot Italian sausage
2 1/2 – 3 cups water
2 1/2 – 3 cups white rice (instant)
Frozen Tater Tots (2 handfulls)
Louisiana buffalo sauce
Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 can of cheap ice beer
In frying pan brown the sausage in the beer. Do this by adding the beer to the pan in small increments. Brakk fills the frying pan about a quarter of the way up the side. Add Montreal steak and Cajun seasoning liberally. Brakk likes to be able to see the spices clearly on his meat.
Cook beer around sausage until it creates a foamy layer, not completely evaporated. When you’ve used all the beer and you have your last bit of sausage/beer foam
Add water and rice
Stir frequently until rice is tender. (you know what rice looks and tastes like when it’s done)
Cook tater tots as directed. (In the oven…you should know how that works too)
When tots are done, crush them up and add to mixture.
Add buffalo sauce and ketchup to taste.
Taste food a number of times during preparation.
