Homemade Sausage Bread

Odd title for someone who is a pescetarian I know, but I wanted to share my mom's recipe for her wonderful sausage bread. Long story short, she passed away from renal cell carcinoma back in 1998 and I wanted to have at least one of her recipes on hand to pass down and around to others. She wrote it out for me one day and so I am going to post it exactly as she had written it to me. She suggests using aluminum throw away pans sprayed with PAM. I never do that, but it is an option if you like. On side note, I make it a version with canned artichokes and I will post my changes at the bottom. So without further fanfare here is the recipe.

SANDY'S SAUSAGE BREAD

For EACH loaf of sausage bread do the following. If you make more than one at a time, just double everything. I usually make 3-4 at once and freeze them.

Grease a loaf pan and preheat oven at 400 degrees.

Ingredients:
1lb. sausage (Italian of course!) either hot or sweet
1 cup flour (not sifted)
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup real Italian grated cheese (I use Pecorino Romano)
1 cup chopped Italian parsley

Remove Sausage from casing and brown. Drain most of the fat. I usually save about one quarter cup to add to the mixture.
In a bog bowl mix flour, milk, eggs, cheese, parsley and sausage all together. The mix will be heavy which is what you want.
Pour into the greased pain and bake for about a half hour or until golden brown. Take out of over and once warm flip pan over to get bread.  This is really best served room temperature or cold. I wrap mine in foil to refrigerate or freeze. If you freeze it all you have to do is take it out and leave it to defrost at room temperature. You can also add cooked spinach to mixture of you like.

My vegetarian version:
Instead of sausage, I cook one can of quartered artichokes with garlic and olive oil. Just get it nice and warm then add to batter. I almost always serve it room temperature.
I have also used soy milk as well as egg beaters and have even left out cheese from time to time. I have added rosemary or oregano or even red pepper flakes when I had no parsley. If you use soy milk the recipes won't be as heavy, but the bread is still delicious just the same.

I also want to thank everyone for stopping by via Down To Earth, it is always a pleasure meeting people who share the same passion for cooking and knitting and all around simple living. :)


Cheers!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

A Good Book Here, A Good Book There

Took a hiatus. Yeah, I am sure you all noticed. Been trying to get things moving along and with that I had to slack and so I slacked on the blog. Now allow me to share our little artificial tree that our son and his grandma decorated with glee.


In the last two months or so, I no longer bring my computer upstairs. Instead I have started to read at night. While this may not sound like any big deal, it is a little for me. I love to read, but due to school, home, obligations, and writing a novel, I somehow pushed reading an actual book to the side.  Like a lot of folks I got more caught up in the rabbit hole of the internet. Now, I do love getting sucked down various rabbit holes, but I also felt that I needed to actually unplug.
Allow me to sidebar a bit here.

I had been struggling with my book for a very long time. In the last 6 months or so it got worse. I had lost the true nature of the story and could no longer hear the character voice. I am not the first writer this has happened to…
