Garlic Sausage ideas?

foodieX2 Sep 3, 2013 05:27 PM

Digging in my freezer tonight I found two packages of house made garlic sausages from a local german place, Karl's Kitchen. They appear to a pork/beef blend with various seasonings including garlic. Eyeballing they look like great grilling sausages but I thought I might try some other ideas. My first gut was to slice and cook in some red sauce to use over a hearty pasta or possibly a lasagna,

Any other ideas?

    Are these the German Style form Karl's in Peabody MA?
    If so I think they are very much like Knockwursts, probably not a good match for Italian applications.
    Braised with Sauerkraut, Sliced in Potato or Lentil Soup , Grilled on a Roll, in Potato Salad, as part of a Choucroute Garnie, or Wurstsalat.

      Thanks! They are from Karl's in Peabody but look completely different from the german style ones we usually get. I think I will grill a couple up tonight as a taste test. It was the heavy garlic element was leading me down the Italian road.

      I love garlic sausage with beans - think a variation of cassoulet-ish dish.

      Cannellini beans, thyme, garlic, onion, stock, bacon, your sausage - crusty bread - yum.
