Final Notes for the Oven-Baked Italian Sausage Recipe
➡️ Who doesn’t like to eat Italian sausages? I think very few meat lovers would say that they don’t like to enjoy a piece of juicy sausage! Without any doubt, sausages are among the most appreciated food recipes in many parts of the world.
➡️ Do you know how to cook sausage in the oven? Sausages can be roasted in two ways using a stove. The first way is to fry them on the stovetop in a pan with oil or lard, the second possibility is to use the oven and roast them without oil or lard!
➡️ Those who have an oven with a grill function can opt for roasting the sausages similar to their preparation on the charcoal grill, the only difference being that they will not have the smoky taste specific to those cooked over the hot charcoal.
➡️ Of course, an experienced person in the kitchen might find it hilarious to watch a video tutorial on how to cook fresh sausages in the oven. Without doubts, cooking sausages in the oven by baking is quite simple, but you still need to know a few basic rules to not make mistakes that could ruin your dinner.
➡️ The first tip when cooking fresh sausages, either in the pan or on the tray, is to not notch them. If you cut the sausage skin, the filling will overflow and instead of fried sausages, you’ll get a kind of broken meatballs!
➡️ The second tip when cooking sausages is to avoid oiling them. The entire oven will be greased because the hot oil will splash violently, plus, the oil will dry the sausage skin out, which will break, and, as a result, the sausage will be unsightly.
➡️ The third tip for cooking fresh sausages in the oven is to buy quality sausages without much water in the composition. Normally, fresh sausage should not contain so much water to get out during roasting. If, however, the sausages eliminate pretty much water, drain it from the tray before flipping them. If you don’t do so, the Italian sausage will boil instead of frying and will have an unpleasant taste and consistency!
➡️ After you learn how to cook sausage in the oven, you have to know that baked Italian sausage can be served in different ways. Often, I like to eat them only with some mustard and a piece of fresh bread. Sometimes I replace mustard with ketchup or horseradish sauce. The second choice is to serve the sausages along with various side dishes to get more complex foods.
➡️ Among the dishes that I like very much next to baked Italian sausages are mashed potatoes and fries. However, other side dishes fit very well, such as creamy kohlrabi stew, creamy green pea stew, Hungarian sweet cabbage stew, or braised yellow beans, to list only those that I prepare most often.
➡️ I like baked Italian sausages a lot and, therefore, I often cook them both when I don’t have time for a more elaborate dinner, and when I’m tired and don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I also recommend you to prepare baked Italian sausages using the cooking method shown by me, I think you will like the result as well as the fact that you get a delicious meal without any hassle!
