We bought some Italian Sausages (hot and spicy) from the Harris Teeter last night. I consider myself a good bratwurst maker, but I have never made these sausages. Sadly, due to NC law, we cannot have a grill in our apartment, so I have to make these suckers inside. Any suggestions? Just cook them on a skillet and throw them in a hot dog bun? Can you boil them in beer like brats? Any suggestions would be awesome

Yup. Just throw them in a skillet and and cook until done. Maybe throw in a handful of sliced onion and sweet red pepper too. Use a hoagie or sturdier roll than a regular hotdog bun. Maybe add some hot honey mustard? Good eating!

Frying pan. Poke sausages, cover w/water and add a little olive oil. Simmer for 20 min. Remove, dump liquid. Add more oil and saute some onions/peppers/garlic. Remove. Add sauasages and brown then put onions,etc in. Serve of nice crusty Italian rolls.

You could also simmer, brown, slice- add garlic, can of tomatoes, white wine, oregano,parsley, red pepper flakes and serve over pasta.l

I brown them in a pan with some garlic and onions, and then add a can of tomatoes (with the juice), red wine, tomato paste, maybe some veggies (zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms, spinach), oregano, and basil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. If you left out the vegetables you could simmer until the liquid's just about gone and put on a crusty roll with the tomatoes and onions. Peppers are also popular, I just don't like them very much.

Put them on a rack over a baking sheet in the oven for
about 30min turning at the 15min mark @ 350°

In a pan, slice up some onions & green peppers with about
a tablespoon of olive oil and add just a pinch of salt & fresh
ground black pepper.

I'd also agree with the hoagie bun

I like splitting open some fresh banana peppers and stuffing them w/ Italian sausage, bake, cover with marinara, top w/ mozzarella cheese, broil till cheese is browned and bubbly.

You can scoop out the all the seeds from the peppers, I leave a few in cuz I like spicy stuff.

Toss them into the crockpot with some homemade spaghetti sauce; they should be cooked after about 3 hours on high or 5-6 hours on low, and serve over pasta.

Cut them in half the long way and put on a sheet pan (cover with foil for easy cleaning) and cook under the broiler. I usually cook the skin side up first, turn and cook the other side. Be sure to put your vent fan on.

I put them in a heavy skillet on the stove-top, add about 1/2 inch of water, and boil it with a lid on for about 15 minutes.

Then dump out the water and brown them really well all over in the same skillet. I like sweet or mild sausage best, and eat it plain on a soft bun. I think it really brings out the flavor. DH likes mustard on his. Even though I like spicy food for some reason I don't care for spicy Italian sausage...
