Homemade sausages. :-) cause halal breakfast sausage stinks...i made my own and they were yummy!

Here's the basic recipe - add to it as you wish... I haven't quite perfected it yet but here's where I'm at with it:


2 pounds ground chicken or turkey
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped apple
1 garlic clove minced
seasonings - salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, thyme, sage, chili powder

Last time, i added maple syrup and that really made it good. It's not quite perfect yet, i'll post again when i get it right where i want it. I've only made it twice so am working with it, but this is it so far...

Okay, so saute the onions and apple in oil, add minced garlic. Saute for another minute. Let cool. Add this to the chicken or turkey along with the spices and mix well. Cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Freeze leftovers and just pop them in the microwave.

Chicken Cacciatore - Crock Pot

The picture isn't very good...never is with brothy dishes...don't know why.

Anyway, this recipe came from a book called "The Everyday Low-Carb Slow Cooker Cookbook. I just started using a crockpot for cooking after finding one insanely cheap. I would add more salt and pepper to it as well as adding basil and more spices...a touch of marjoram, savory, sage and thyme would be nice. Fresh basil would pep it right up. It was pretty good as is for following the recipe to a t.

(i made a half recipe since my crockpot is very small)

Add to crockpot:
1 Tbsn olive oil
1 Tbsn minced garlic
14 oz can of crushed tomatos (i used crushed tomatos with basil)
7 oz can of mushrooms
1 bay leaf
1 Tbsn dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tbsn red wine (see my chart for alcohol substitutions on the sidebar under food links)

Stir until blended then add:

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 medium onion
2 green bell peppers

Cook on low for 8 hours (my crockpot only has one setting...i cooked it for 6 hours and it was perfect).
