Classic German Sausage and Peppers

By | German Sausage, Recipes | No Comments

Dave from Arizona says: “I’m a total dude and I hate cooking. BOULDER SAUSAGE comes every couple of weeks and the German Sausages are my favorite. I like to grill them up most of the time, but when I have a girl over for a date I go a little more complex with a dish made with red wine, which just adds tons of flavor to the German Sausages. If you like to eat hearty ‘dude food’ but don’t have extensive kitchen skills and want to impress the ladies, this is the dish.”

Homemade Pizza with Italian Sausage and Fresh Basil

By | Italian Sausage, Recipes | No Comments

Homemade Pizza w/ Italian Sausage and Fresh Basil

Ingredients:
½ recipe Basic Pizza Dough, or use purchased pizza dough
1 cup tomato sauce
6-8 halves slow roasted tomatoes, depending on size
8 ounces Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
6-8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped fairly fine
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
a pinch sea salt
⅛ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Directions:
1. Prepare pizza dough as directed or use purchased ball of pizza dough.

2. While dough is rising, prepare sauce; combine garlic, fresh herbs, salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.

3. Place a pizza stone on a rack in the lower third of your oven. Preheat the oven to 475°F for 30 minutes, you want the stone to be blazing hot (this simulates a pizza oven).

4. Sprinkle a piece of parchment paper about the size of your pizza stone lightly with cornmeal and place it on a pizza paddle or on a large cutting board. Set aside.
On a slightly floured work surface, flatten the dough with your hands. Start at the center and work outwards, using your fingers to press and stretch the dough outwards to a 10-12 inch circle. If the dough resists stretching, let it rest for a few minutes, this relaxes the glutens in the flour and makes the dough easier to work with.
Fold dough in half and then in quarters and transfer to prepared parchment paper. Unfold dough and reshape as needed,

5. Spread dough evenly with suace and then distribute the mozzarella on top. Nestle Italian sausage and slow roasted tomatoes in between the slices of cheese. Let pizza rest for 20-30 minutes before placing in oven.

6. Carefully open oven and slide parchment paper and dough onto the preheated stone. Bake for 5- 7 minutes or until golden brown. Check after 5 minutes and turn pizza if one side is getting too brown.

7. Remove pizza from oven, cut and enjoy!

Smoked Chorizo Soft Tacos with Grilled Peach and Corn Salsa

Smoked Chorizo Soft Tacos with Grilled Peach and Corn Salsa

By Toni at Boulder Locavore

Ingredients

1 pack BOULDER SAUSAGE brand Chorizo

Apple wood (can be purchased wherever barbeque supplies are sold), about 2 cups (un-soaked)

1 package of 6 inch soft corn tortillas (usually 12 in a package)

Queso Fresco cheese (a mild Mexican white cheese), sliced

One recipe of Grilled Peach and Corn Salsa (click here for recipe – make prior to smoking chorizo)

Smoking box or heavy foil

Preparation

  1. Preheathalf of the grill to high heat.  Leave other side of grill turned off.  Keep hood lowered.
  2. In an oven proof skillet (I used cast iron), lightly brown the chorizo on the stove top or on a grill burner if your grill has one.  Drain any grease (mine did not have any).
  3. Prepare the smoking packet.  I used a cast iron grill smoking box I purchased for about $10 on Amazon.com.  You can also make a smoking packet by placing the apple wood in a large square of heavy foil.  Close packet by folding over edges.  Pierce the top of the foil in several spots.
  4. Place the smoking packet on the heated side of the grill.  Close grill lid and allow to heat up and begin to smoke (about 10-15 minutes).  Leaving smoking packet on the grill, add the chorizo in the oven proof skillet on the side of the grill that was not heated.  Close grill hood and allow to smoke for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove chorizo and allow to cool slightly.  Drain any fat or use a slotted spoon to dish chorizo into tacos.  Remove smoking packet and allow to cool fully before discarding (or discarding the wood if using a smoking box).
  6. To warm tortillas:  Place tortillas in heavy foil and seal.  Place packet on the grill to warm for a few minutes after removing chorizo and smoking packet.
  7. To assemble tacos:  In a warm tortilla, add two spoonfuls (soup spoon size) of chorizo, a slice of queso fresco and a large spoonful of the Grilled Peach and Corn Salsa.  Enjoy!

Prep Time: 25 minutes – Cook Time: 40 minutes  –  Total Time: 65 minutes – Yield: Serves 4-6
