Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Grilling Sausages…..

Grill low and slow; fast and hot will cause the juices in the sausage to boil, making the casing burst open, resulting in a burnt outside and a raw inside. Never cut the sausage open while grilling to see if it’s done. To determine whether it’s done, you can measure the internal temperature with a meat thermometer. Sausages should reach 155–165°F (68–74°C). Alternatively, boiling them before cooking in a pan or on a grill can ensure that they’re thoroughly cooked and remain moist

BOCKFEST IS BACK! RETURNS FOR 30TH YEAR
Mar 4-6 2022| Cincinnati, OH | Food

 

About Bockfest
Bockfest is first and foremost, a community event. In addition to throwing a great, three day long party, our goal is to celebrate and support our local community. We work to grow Bockfest every year, to increase attendance, to grow the parade, to add events, and to raise more money to spread the word. However, as enthusiastic as we are about growing the festival and sharing it with an increasingly wider range of America, we are unwavering in our commitment to keep Bockfest unique, authentic and local. There is no charge to the public to attend Bockfest and we work to include all types of local businesses because our goal is to promote Over-the-Rhine, its rich heritage, and the people who live and work here to as broad of an audience as we can reach.

Bockfest, presented by TruPartner Credit Union, takes place at multiple participating bars & restaurants throughout Over-the-Rhine and Downtown. All locations are FREE!

 

THE PERFECT BOCKFEST WEEKEND
Start your Bockfest weekend at the Moerlein Lager House with the winners of this year’s Schoenling Bock Home Brew Competition at 4P. Hop on the streetcar to Arnold’s and Main Street to watch the Parade step off at 6P. Follow the Parade up to our NEW Bockfest Hall at Findlay Playground to hear Jake Speed sing “The Bock Beer Song”, bow your head with Brother Tim as he blesses this year’s bock beer, and cheer as the Parade winners are announced. Grab a bock beer and some food and Rock out with The Klaberheads before heading out to our participating venues in Over-the-Rhine/Downtown and around Cincinnati with their own specials.

Shake off those cobwebs on Saturday morning and cheer on the Bockfest 5K runners at 10A. The Bock Beer Experience kicks off at 12P where you can sample over 30 bock beers! You’ll need a full belly to make sure the goat doesn’t kick too hard, and the BockFest Pig Roast will fill you up. Hop next door to Rookwood Pottery for our Bockfest Heritage Series with breweriana and speakers or take a 1 hour walking tour of one of Cincinnati’s most historic breweries and its underground lager cellars. Take a break Saturday night with great music, then watch our newest Sausage Queen be crowned. Make sure to stop by our participating venues, both in Over-the-Rhine/Downtown and around Cincinnati.

You’re not done yet, as we start Sunday a little slower and a lot more family friendly! Goat Yoga starts the day at 10A, followed by the cutest Little Links pageant for the kids. Games for kids with our partners at the Cincinnati Recreation Commission start at 11A, along with a petting zoo with you guessed it, goats! Live music in the afternoon along with more chances for a walking tour of Cincinnati brewing history, plus the BockFeat pig roast continues. You can end the weekend on a high note by running, walking, or crawling 164′ feet in the .05K Run at 3P and win your own t-shirt, beer opener medal, and more!

Healthy Sausage Recipes
Find healthy, delicious sausage recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Louisiana Gumbo
Chock-full of shrimp, chicken, sausage, okra and tomatoes, this flavorful stew is a staple in Louisiana. Make it a meal and serve with Real Cornbread (see associated recipe)……

Sheet-Pan Sausage and Peppers
This easy one-dish meal is bound to become a regular in your dinner rotation–it’s super simple and comes together quickly. Be sure to preheat your sheet pan–adding vegetables to a hot pan helps start the charring and caramelization, without steaming your veggies. And remember, you are only heating up your sausage, not cooking it from raw in this recipe, but if you substitute with fresh sausage (which you can), you’ll need to cook the sausage longer……

Cast-Iron Skillet Pizza with Sausage and Kale
A piping-hot cast-iron skillet turns pizza dough into a puffy, crisp-bottomed crust (similar to focaccia). If you have children, let them help make this easy pizza recipe: While you cook the sausage, have the kids tear up the kale–no knife required!

Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees and mostly sunny outside today. Not a lot today. I did get the cart out and raked the side and backyards. We already have a few trees where the leaves are falling. Not much else going on. Kicked back and got caught up on a couple of movies I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used the always delicious Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, one of my favorites. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I love these Smoked Sausages.

 

I also prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Popcorn and a Coke Zero to drink.
