We're having turkey burgers with macaroni & cheese "fritters". They're yesterday's macaroni & cheese made into pancakes and pan fried.

lulu, your veggies sound wonderful! I'm in a veggie mood too. Perhaps I'll add roasted red peppers to the turkey burgers.

you can make them yourself even! :)

all you``ll need will be the meat salt and spices, either tomato puree or sundried tomatoes, blitz the whole thing in a food proc until sausage meat consistancy (or use a propper meat grinder if you`re lucky enough to have own one.

then you need some sheep intestine and a funnel with a reasonably wide outlet appature, slide the intestine over the funnel bottom (it`s very thin but quite strong) tie a knot in the end, then fill the funnel with the mix and ram down hard with a chopstick to fill the skin, it`s quite easy to do and fast with practice (Honestly!).
then twist the skin at the required sausage length about 3x and then do the next one until done.
then with a sharp knife cut them all seperate and cook as normal :)

actualy you can put anything you like in it if you make your own!

Enjoy :)

Thanks YT for the instruction!! Actually come to think about it, sundried tomatoes sounds really good mixed in sausage!! We often use "unformed" sausage meats, looks like a pile of mince but seasoned as sausages, I think I try mixing in chopped sundried tomatoes for our recipe next time!! (I am not sure I would like to play with sheep intestines... )
Thanks for the great idea!

it`s not at all like you think it might be, honestly it isn`t, it`s more like a super mega long thin condom than anything else, no smell or wierd stuff, it may as well be a plastic, in fact if I`m not mistaken you can actualy get "Plastic" sausage skins (it`s a harmless plastic I beleive).
trust me, there`s no "Gross-Out" factor involved :)

EDITED: to add, Sorry if I hijacked / derailed the thread for a bit, I`ll go stand in my corner for a while longer...

Italian Beef Sandwiches.............smelly heavenly in here. I'll serve it on a deli hoagie bun with Mozarella Cheese melted on top of the meat and peppercinnis on the side. Also, beer battered onion rings.

Decided to make a fresh loaf of bread in the bread machine and cut thick slices vs. the hoagies. Youngest sons favorite food is bread... so he's quite thrilled.

I've also decided to make flans for dessert. Was reminded by kitchenelfs icon recently that I'd found a recipe for flan and I just found the misplaced recipe today so I'm going to try it out as I've never had this before.

Buck'll be out for a dinner meeting tonight so I'll probably raid the refrigerator and see what needs to go before it becomes a U.F.O. (unidentified food object). Credit one of my brothers for that term.

Flourgirl, lately I've been seeing mac & cheese "fritters" on the menu as an appetizer. They're pretty darn good, and sooooooooo not good for you.
