There is just something about a man who can cook and has supper on the table when his wife comes home from work. Last Saturday I had to work and it was a crazy, busy shift at the ol' library! I walk in the door and Brad had supper ready to go (Husband Points appointed to Brad!). And, of course, it was mighty delish because my man can cook!
While I was eating it Brad kept asking me to guess the ingredients. Tomato sauce? Nope. Canned tomatoes? No siree! Only after I had eaten his delicious creation did he finally divulge what he used in his 'secret' mixture. Salsa. Say wha? Yup, a good ol' jar of salsa.
I have to admit I was a little surprised but heck, it worked! Plus you get the chunks of onions, peppers etc all in there too and it was a pretty quick meal to prep. It was really tasty and the leftovers were just as good (I assume they were since Brad took them the following day). A proud, proud boy was he!
Perhaps I should appoint Saturdays as his day to show off his mad cooking skills!? I'll have to get him to whip this dish up again because, as you can see, the picture below isn't stellar. I was too tired and excited to dig into a meal that I didn't have a hand in making. Next time I'll take my time and set up the shot so that you can at least SEE the delicious sausage in this dish. Until then, you'll have to just trust me that this is a yummy, week night meal option.
5 honey garlic sausages, grilled and sliced on a diagonal
1 (650mL) jar of salsa (you pick the heat - we did President's Choice Mild)
1 small can of pizza sauce
4 servings of rice, cooked and hot
Grill the sausages on the BBQ. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan or skillet, combine the salsa and pizza sauce and heat through.
When the sausages are cooked, slice them diagonally and place them in the skillet with the salsa mixture. Place heaps of rice onto individual plates, top with the sausage-salsa mixture and serve immediately.
