Sausage and Caramelized Onions in Gravy with Mashed Potatoes

A few notes before you get into the recipe the sausage although I call out for sweet Italian sausage feel free to substitute whatever sausage you like best including hot Italian it is a personal preference I just needed something to fill the ingredient and I am in no way telling you to eat this and only this eat what you like this recipe works well with almost any kind of sausage you like. The same goes for the onions although I use red feel free to use yellow or even sweet onions if you prefer.

When grilling the sausage it is best to use an indirect heat so you don’t char the sausage and leave the middle under cooked you could also start them on the grill and then just pop them in the oven to finish the cooking process if the grill is giving you to many flare up issues just start them there so they get that smoky flavor your after and then a quick stay in the oven to finish cooking them don’t want any raw meat issues here.

When we don’t have the grill available we often cook them in the oven for connivance sake it does a nice job just check them often so you don incinerate them. Now the potatoes I give you a fairly simple recipe and the cream amount is an approximation as everyone has a different idea as to how firm mashed potatoes should be. Some like them super stiff while others almost like water it is up to you once again some things in cooking need to be adjusted for personal likes and dislikes so I can’t give you an exact that is perfect for you. Just don’t add all the cream at once as it is hard to take it out but easy to put a bit more in. Continue reading

Organic Brown Gravy for Meatloaf

My one non-food site is a product review site and how I set out doing that is I scour the net for reviews and seek out products with great reviews. The short of it is I do the leg work so busy moms have more time. Well, this got me thinking of this gravy recipe. Many these days are going either gluten-free or organic or both. But where do you find the stuff to do that? When I made this recipe, I sought out the best-reviewed products to make gluten-free, organic brown gravy for meatloaf.

I thought what is the point of making this recipe if you have no idea of what to use to end up totally organic and gluten-free in the process? I mean it is nice to say ‘use organic ingredients or gluten-free ones’ but if you have no idea of what are the good ones you’re going to be making a lot more gravy, I bet, than you were setting out to do.

So in doing this recipe I went through the reviews and, trust me, all the good and the bad ones, to find a set of products that people said were worth the money. After all, who wants to buy a bunch of stuff only to find out it’s gross? I don’t and that is why I have so many suggestions in this recipe. Of course if you have one you like better, or like period, then go with what you know. I would. I merely wanted options available to you to make the recipe within the scope of the description.

How to Make Bread Machine Biscuits

If bread machine biscuits sound easy to you, you are right in one way but not in another. The point of a bread machine is that it is supposed to be a timesaving device. If you want to make bread or dinner rolls in there, you simply add the ingredients in the right order and the machine will mix and knead the dough for you. Some bread machines can also bake the bread but biscuits need to be baked in the oven. Also, when you make biscuits, you barely have to do any mixing. Over-mixing the dough can lead to the gluten toughening up which will give you tough biscuits. This is essential to know if you want to make melt-in-the-mouth biscuits.

To make the following biscuits recipe you need to add the dry ingredients to the bread machine, then the wet ones and let it run on a dough cycle. So, all in all, it does not save a lot of time using a bread machine instead of combining the ingredients by hand, so you will not really be gaining precious minutes.

Saying that, if you have a bread machine and you want to use it, why not try this bread machine recipe for biscuits, for convenience sake, and see if you like the results? If you like a whole wheat flavor, you can use three cups of bread flour and half a cup of wheat flour instead of using just bread flour. The change in flavor is slight but some people prefer it.

Gorgeous Gravy to Serve with Beef Tips

Can you take a wild guess what the third most popular meat is in the world, accounting for about 25% of all the meat eaten? The answer is beef! Beef falls behind pork (38%) and poultry (30%) in the ranking of the most popularly consumed meat of all time. The term ‘beef’ is said to have come from the Latin term ‘bovinus.’ According to statistics, the three countries that are considered the largest beef consumers are the United States of America, Brazil and People’s Republic of China.

However, another statistic shows that the largest beef consumers per capita basis are Argentina, the US and Europe. Beef is indeed one of the most sought after meats around the globe. Australia, the US and Brazil are deemed the largest exporters of beef worldwide. So how did man start to eat beef? History says that the flesh of bovines was considered everyday food even during the prehistoric times.

Evidence was discovered even on the oldest and earliest cave paintings. However, it was around 8000 BC that the domestication of cattle began in order to increase the availability of not just the meat (beef), but the milk and leather that the cattle provide. As for the time when man began to cook beef, no one can pinpoint when it really started. Through time, man was able to differentiate the many different types of cows that can provide meat and milk. There are some kinds that provide great milk but not meat and vice versa. However, there are also those that can serve both purposes. The following homemade gravy recipe was created to complement beef tips. Continue reading

Hello, I'm Christine. Thanks for dropping by and welcome to Amazing Sauces. Food is a very important part of our family's lives, and I find a homemade sauce often finishes a dish perfectly. Whether you are making something with chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, an appetizer, or even a dessert recipe, a sauce is often the ideal finishing touch.

You will find many sauce recipes here, all conveniently in one place, from the classics like tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and cheese sauce, to gravies, marinades, and unusual ideas for sauces too like ginger-plum sauce or gorgonzola sauce.

Some sauces can be drizzled over the meal, while others are best served on the side. Some will work as a dip or sauce, while others are great for basting, marinating or adding a splash of color to a recipe. Try our creamy gravies with your breakfast, one of our international steak marinades for a sophisticated spin on dinner, or learn how to make a classic béarnaise or rich red wine sauce to complement your dish.
