This all happened last week but I haven't taken the time to post it up until now.
My wife's friend wanted me to cook dinner for us and her new boyfriend on the egg. She was going to buy all the food and all I had to do was cook it. I had been feeling a creativity slump lately and didn't know what to make so I told her to just go the the store and surprise me. I told her to get me the food about 3 hours before she wanted to eat and I had to make the meal out of what she brought and anything we had at our house but I could not go to the store. Here is what I had to work with:
Turkey apple sausage (loose not cased)
2 white sweet peppers
about 10 medium tomatoes
a red onion
a package of sliced mushrooms
Long story short it was a lot of fun and this is what I came up with. I only added a few ingredients from my house to finish this but everything was a big hit and I want to do it again.
I started with a bacon weave of some of my home cured apple smoked bacon
made some what of a fatty out of the sausage stuffed with feta and some sautéed mushrooms and onions (i was under a time crunch didn't get filling pics)
sprinkled some john henry rub on the outside and ran it about 325 with a few chunks of peach wood
for the rest of the ingredients i made a simple grilled tomato onion and pepper salad
i grilled all the ingredients first (didn't get a picture of the red onion slices) after grilled the items were sliced and chilled with some balsamic, parsley, and a little olive oil (no pics of the process)
final plated pictures also had some mozzarella in the salad as well, legit night and great food.
