I have had some enquiries about andouille from my prior post. Andouille is a spicy smoked Louisiana sausage. It is commonly used in Cajun and Creole dishes like Jambalaya and Gumbo. However, it is also tasty eaten by itself or on a charcuterie tray. Continue reading PWE Andouille
It has been cold at Passing Wind Estates, minus 20 C. We have 14 inches of snow. It is time for comfort food! Continue reading Jambalaya
I was out of breakfast sausage. My hand started to shake a little as my eyes widened in horror. I had to make more.
Summer is coming and summer needs hot dogs. I don’t make the rules I just follow them. The problem is that most commercial hot dogs aren’t very flavourful and have a soft rubbery texture. You can do a lot better. I did by making my own. I named them after our property. Allow me to introduce you to Passing Wind Estates Hot Dogs. Continue reading PWE Hot Dogs
A Homage to Pork!
OK, I admit it. I love pork. I like all kinds of pork. I decided it was time to do a dish that reflected my love of pork in all its forms. Welcome to Quatre Cochons de Montagne (Four Mountain Pigs). Of course, one of the best ways to cook pork is in the smoker, so the Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker was the chosen tool. Continue reading Quatre Cochons de Montagne
Catastrophe! I went to the freezer and there was no breakfast sausage left. I had to make more immediately! I have posted my go to breakfast sausage recipe, PWE Breakfast Sausage. As usual, I just can’t resist trying something new. I decided to add maple syrup to the recipe and made Passing Wind Estates Maple Sausage. Continue reading PWE Maple Sausage
I love Chicken Cordon Bleu. The salty of the ham and the gooey cheese. How could you possibly improve it? Sounds like a challenge to me. I substituted sausage for the ham, used a chunk of cheese instead of slices and did an easier breading. Then I baked it instead of deep frying which is messy. Welcome to the creation of Chicken Mountain Bleu! Continue reading Chicken Mountain Bleu
She Who Must Be Obeyed and I usually spend a quiet night together on New Years Eve. It must be a sign of my age. Just because we don’t do a big party doesn’t mean we don’t want some delicious appetizers to ring in the New Year. I had left over pastry from my mincemeat tarts and I was out of breakfast sausage so fate decreed I would make sausage rolls. Continue reading Sausage Rolls
This is the second part of my first attempt at making sausage on my Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker. In the prior post I showed the way I made Smokehouse Summer Sausage. I made this bologna at the same time using a mix from LEM products called Backwoods Trail Bologna. I bought the kit version that includes the sausage casings. Continue reading Backwoods Trail Bologna
