Recipe - Saucy Sausage Dinner

We had this last night. Sooooo good. I had a recipe floating around that called for bratwurst, but instead we used Compliments Extra Lean Turkey Sausages (tomato & basil).

4-6 dinner sausages
1 tsp veg oil
1 medium onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp caraway seeds
1 bayleaf (I didn't have one and it was fine without it)
2 tsp cider vinegar
1 cup chicken stock
2 tbsp cornstarch mixed w/ 1/4 cup warm water (don't mix until ready to use)

In a large skillet, brown the sausages over med/high heat. Remove sausages from pan, then warm oil and sautee onion & garlic until soft (approx 2-3 mins). Add mushrooms, tomatoes, salt, pepper, caraway, bayleaf, and vinegar. Sautee until mushrooms soften (approx 3-4 mins). Add chicken stock, stir, then return sausages to pan. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until sausages cooked (approx 18 mins). Remove sausages and keep warm. Remove bay leaf. Add cornstarch mixture to pan, bring heat up to slow boil, stirring constantly until sauce thickens to desired consistency.

I served sausages topped with sauce over a bed of No Yolks egg noodles and a side of steamed brocolli.

Option: stir in low-fat sour cream right before serving to give creamier consistency and taste. Pin It
