leeks with sausages

The sausages mixed with the leeks and the feta cheese squeezing in.

Like other kids, I guess, sausages were my favorite food when I was young. Easy to make and tasty, anything that I could ask at that time.  However, as time went by I forgot to try and make any nice relevant dish with sausage as the main ingredient.

To be honest I was barely trying. Yeah of course, there is the spetsofai which is very typical in Volos , central Greece, but I was looking for something different.

So one Saturday night, I came up to the following recipe which surprised me in a number of ways. First of all because it is easy to make which is important nowadays when you are looking to eat something nice in less than 30-40 minutes.

Also, the flavour of the leeks, make a real difference..

INGREDIENTS FOR SAUSAGES WITH LEEKS

  • 2-3 sausages chopped in large pieces. Ideally anything spicy would do
  • 3 leeks chopped
  • Around 200gr of feta cheese cut in various pieces
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt Pepper
  • Paprika and some chilli if you want
  • A bit of oregano

LETS COOK THOSE SAUSAGES

  • Ideally you will need a deep frying pan. I used one of those for Chinese food. Throw a bit of olive oil in there… just a teaspoon and then leeks. Stir them a bit and add water. You don’t want to cover the leeks with water but just a but until the middle so they start to get soft
  • If you want at that point, you can add ½ of a vegetable stocking cube..but not necessary.
  • As the water slowly evaporates and the Leeks become softer you add the sausages, salt, pepper, paprika and the chili (if you like it spicy) and stir. Let it for 4-5 minutes more.
  • Just before the end, when the sausages are ready, add the feta cheese and the oregano and stir it for 1-2 minutes. Bear in mind you don’t want your feta cheese to melt.

They are ready to be served.

[box type="tick"]Tip: Make sure when you clean the leeks, to always remove the outside part of the leek before you chop them. So they can be softer when they are cooked. I didn’t know that…my mother told me…[/box]

I learned how to cook cause...i didn't have much of choice. The following recipes are the results of my efforts!
