In the bottom of a Bread Pan, I layered from the bottom up:
- 1lb Frozen Ground Chicken
- Any type of Meat would do.
- But I figured the less Grease, the better.
- I just took the frozen (semi-thawed loaf) and pressed it into the bottom of the Bread Pan, where it fit nice and snug.
- 1 Onion
- 1lb Mild Italian Sausage
- I placed these on top of The Onions, poking holes in the skin with a knife.
- ½ Can Coconut Milk
- This was frozen, too.
- Everything was frozen but The Onion.
- I scooped it out on top of The Sausage.
- Sprinkling Red Pepper Flakes
- I just used a sprinkling.
- More heat can always be added later.
- And in some sense, I was just adding The Red Pepper (at this time) to add a little bit of color.
Since originally this was going to be dinner, but I put it all together first thing in the morning (and I do mean, first thing), I had all the time in the world to cook it. So, I decided to cook it slow.
Rather than doing the math, which seems tedious, I'll just transcribe my Stopwatch Readings.
- Timer Reading: Temperature To This Point
- 2:40: 250°
- Thus, the starting run lasted a little over 2.5 Hours with the oven set at 250°.
- 3:00: 300°
- 3:40: 350°
- At the end of this stage, The Sausages were getting nice and brown. So, I flipped them over.
- 4:19: 425°
- And, yes. The other side of The Sausages got crispy.
- I like a Semi-Crispy Brown Skin on My Sausage.
- 4:30: OFF
These were good. Of course, it's just Italian Sausage. It's not like they were transformed. But the Coconut Milk added a bit of Flavour & Sweetness. And The Ground Chicken (which I do not regard as overly flavourful) found plenty of drippings in which to marinate itself for hours on end.
Served with Broccoli and Focaccia, there were no complaints... as well there had better not be.
Since there were Five Sausages in the package, I figure this had Five Servings, each consisting of a Sausage, an equal amount of Ground Chicken, and a few Spoonfuls of Sauce.
