what to do with chicken sausage w/feta and spinach

i bought a pack of 4 chicken sausages blended with spinach and feta at whole foods over the weekend. It just sounded so good. But now I am trying to think of a way to cook it. I think they would be fine on their own, but I was wondering if anyone had any more creative ideas for a recipe to use?

Thanks so much!

  1. Not too creative, but we eat various flavored chicken sausages on a somewhat regular basis. I would just slice, sautee a bit, and toss with pasta and chopped tomatoes. Simple but good.

    1. re: valerie

      I like the Aidells sausages www.aidells.com more than these feta cheese ones because once sliced, the cheese oozes out and they will spit violently!


    2. An easy dish I do is to sautee a chopped onion, add some crushed vermicelli and brown. Add rice. Then add broth and stir (I'll add chopped veggies sometimes). Top w/ the sausages, cover and bake. Not that creative but quick prep when I don't have much time.

      1. I would say make a tomato based pasta sauce and add some other Mediterranean flavors like olives or zucchini. Take the casings off the sausage and brown with some onions then make the tomato sauce.


        1. serve them with some eggs - a deconstructed florentine omelette with side of sausage!

          1. I created a dish for a party recently using the same or similar sausages. Cooked up some barley, dressed liberally w/olive oil, lemon juice, plenty of fresh chopped dill, s & p, oven roasted grape tomatoes, kalamata olives and the cooked sliced sausages - simple, good, really pretty- served at room temp.

            1. I used similar sausages on a pizza, along with more feta, spinach, artichoke hearts, and kalamata olives. Yummy.

              1. Funny - I just bought nearly the same at Trader Joe's - Fontina, spinach and garlic. So easy to use and combine. Here's one thing I do: first I peel off the casing - icky to me. Then slice and add to hot saute of garlic and EVOO. I then brown slightly and add any number of these - 1 can cannelinni beans, 1 can Italian chopped tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, roasted peppers roasted eggplant, pasta curls. Then top with your favorite cheeses; mozz, asiago, parm, romano...Another option: alternate layers of roasted eggplant (Zergut), roasted peppers (zergut), thin slices of zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, sausage and cheeses in a glass cake pan. Top w/mozz and parm cheese and bake 1 hour or until well and bubbly. serve as is or over your favorite pasta. YUMMO!. Personally I don't believe in eating chicken and egg in the same dish but, you can always make an omelette too :)KQ

                1. If that's the one in the green packaging (Hans brand?), it's a great product, and they are terrific on their own (I usually grill them and enjoy them plain with a little dijon mustard). I also like them sliced with pasta and tomatoes, as Valerie suggested, topped with a little more feta cheese.

                  1. Try them sliced, sauted, mixed with wild rice (along with onions, muchrooms and peppers if you like) and stuffed into a cooked winter squash like butternut.

                    1. This reminded me of a Tru amuse... here's a quickly-thought version:
                      Boil some chick peas.
                      Sauté some red bell peppers, and a bit of tomato.
                      Grill your sausages.
                      Toss the whole thing with olive oil and a bit of lemon.

                      1. Seems like perhaps sauteed onions and granny smith apples along with the sliced and sauteed sausage with some curry poweder and a bit of cayene might yield a good dish. It'd be a take on a scallop/spinach/apple/curry dish that Charlie Trotter did in Kitchen Sessions. Could serve it with rice or pasta or potatoes of some kind.

                        1. omg just made a recipe that was unbelievable. search Al fresco sweet apple chicken sausage spinach salad but use the feta sausage instead. the vinaigrette is briannas brand sold in heb but probably other stores. i used splenda instead of sugar, 50/50 salad variety, added 1/2 squeezed lemon in addition to zest and a whole pear they also have a greek Mediterranean salad recipe with olives, tomatoes and cucumbers
