So, in addition to the recipes I create, I have decided to post my husband's as well, because he can concoct some amazing dishes.
This dish was inspired by a great charcuterie place we have gone to several times in Apple Hill, California. It's called Smokey Ridge and has the best sausages I think I have ever had. You can find their stuff at https://smokeyridgecharcuterie.com/products/.
Being huge fans of duck, we picked up some duck/pear sausage on our annual trip to Apple Hill, and hubs came up with this savory recipe. If you are in an area where you have access to a decent deli, I am sure you can track down some duck sausage, depending on the time of year.
"Put a Duck In It" Sandwich
1/2 head of cabbage
1/2 Black Arkansas Apple (if you do not have access to this, any kind of tart apple should do the job)
1/2 can of pineapple pieces (drained and rinsed)
1/2 cup Yoshida's Gourmet Sauce (if you can't find this, substitue for a sweeter teriyaki sauce)
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp sesame oil
4 duck sausages
2 hoagie rolls
A dash of red pepper
A dash of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Cook the cabbage, apple, and pineapple together with the teriyaki sauce, ginger, red pepper, and sesame oil. When cabbage is tender crisp, drain the veggies while keeping the residual sauce. Set aside. Cook the sausages in a skillet on medium heat. When cooked through, add any extra fat to the set aside teriyaki sauce.
Cut hoagie rolls in half. Dust with a dash of cinnamon and bake until toasted.
Pour dipping sauce into small bowls. Once rolls are finished, top with veggies and sausage. Add a small drizzle of the dipping sauce.
And voila! A rich, hearty fall meal to keep your tummy and tastebuds satisfied!
