Sausage Burgers with Fresh Greens & Chips
6 fancy sausages (pork, beef, chicken, or lamb – I used lamb & basil – AWESOME!)
1 large bag of kettle chips
4 slices of cheese (any kind will do)
4 burger buns
Mayo, ketchup, relish (for burger buns)
4 c fresh salad greens + a little more for the burger buns
½ pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 English cucumber, cubed
Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar to dress the salads
Step by Step Instructions
Brown sausages on both sides in a heavy skillet over medium heat (about 5 minutes per side). When sausages are nicely browned remove them from the pan and slice them in half horizontally, then return them to the pan cut side down and cook sausages through.
When the sausages are cooked through, turn the heat to low and keep them warm. Set the oven to warm and put the buns in the oven to warm through then share the salad greens over 4 plates, garnish with tomatoes and cucumber, and set aside.
When the buns have warmed, cut them open and spread with your choice of sauces (mayo, ketchup, etc). Add a little lettuce, some tomatoes, and cheese to each bun, and top with 6 slices of sausage (one row of three slices topped with another row of three slices stacked on top). Close the bun and place a sausage burger on each plate. Add a handful of chips to each plate, serve and enjoy! This quick and easy dinner is the perfect way to cap your work day!
