The Way You Should Cook Breakfast Sausages Instead Of In A Pan
The most important meal of the day is breakfast, and sometimes you're in the mood for a traditional spread like sunny side up eggs, shredded hash browns, toast with jam, and good old-fashioned breakfast sausage. Though it's likely that many of those home cooks are making their sausage wrong, fear not—here’s how to make the best breakfast sausage.
It is a common practice for sausage lovers to reach for a pan and fry the sausages in oil, but don't reach for that trusty pan — at least, not yet. Instead, Blue Apron's vice president, John Adler, suggests boiling uncooked sausages until fully cooked through, then finishing with a quick pan sear right at the end to crisp up the skin and keep that "perfect snap."
Pre-cooked sausages take roughly 10 minutes to boil, while raw sausages take closer to 30 minutes to cook all the way through. If you're sick of cutting into a perfectly seared breakfast sausage only to discover a pink middle, the extra step will be worth it for that crispy, snappy sausage taste.
