Sausages are an excellent addition to any meal. They are easy to cook, delicious to eat and loved by everybody. Sausages can be barbecued, grilled, fried, roasted or poached.
Boiling sausages won’t give them a crisp exterior, but it will preserve the moisture and fat content within them. Boiled sausages look a little different than grilled or fried sausages. They are not crispy. But boiling is a good way for cooking sausages with other ingredients (stock, beer, herbs, etc.). Don’t pierce them. If you prick good quality sausages, you will let all the moisture and flavor out Just place the sausages in the cold water cover the saucepan with a lid. It will take up to 30 minutes to cook t hem.
There is no need to salt water for cooking sausages, as they are already salty. If you do not care what the sausages look like after cooking, then throw them into boiling water, but they will probably burst along during cooking
Simply grilled sausages
Grilling sausages is ideal for hot weather and summer meals shared with friends and family. The simplest way to cook sausages is to grill them either on a barbecue grill or in a hot pan. It requires very little amount of work and attention. For thin sausages, preheat your pan and add a small amount of butter or oil. Add the sausages and allow them to slowly cook, turning them every few minutes until they’re evenly colored.
Sausages should be cooked over moderate heat otherwise they will be burnt The higher the heat is, the faster the skins burn. It is important to keep an eye on the grill to avoid burning the sausages. You should turn the sausages regularly to ensure that they cook evenly and don’t burn. Before cooking the cellophane shell needs to be removed. Cellophane contains substances that, when heated, will not improve the state of food.
The natural shell sausages should not be cleaned as they are quite edible. For thicker sausages, either drop the heat to low and cook them for at least 25-minutes to ensure they’re cooked all the way through. Cook them in an ovenproof pan over a medium heat until they’re evenly fried, then pop the pan into a preheated 180C oven for 10 minutes, or until they’re cooked through.
