At our parish festival, there's a guy who makes his own sausage. He spends the entire season going to all the parish festivals, frying the sausage with peppers and onions and serving those great sandwiches. My wife sometimes mentions those sandwiches in the dead of winter, looking forward to June.....

I've always loved this. She came late to this sort of food; we were in Metamora, Indiana, a canal town-cum-antiques center, and there was a guy frying sausages outside. It was cold -- near Christmas -- but we ordered and ate, enjoying every bite while we shivered......

Every year, my workplace has a Thanksgiving dinner (well, lunch) where everyone brings something and the agency supplies turkeys and hams (including the Southern classic fried whole turkey - yum!). As you can imagine, there are tons of stuffings, sweet potatoes, veggie casseroles, etc.

One year, I decided to bring something with a bit of Northeastern touch since I am now, of course, in the Southeast. Sort of a palate cleanser. I brought big roaster pan of Italian sausage with onions and peppers with sauce just to break up the turkey-and-dressing thing. You would have thought that these folks were going to get into fork fights over the sausage - they LOVED it. I hate since found good Italian sausage at local butcher, but way too expensive for cooking for a crowd...Publix makes a very acceptible in-house sausage a bit more reasonably priced. The request has already been made for my sausage at this year's fest.

Sometimes they don't like us Yankees down here, but they sure seem to take to the food!

Mmmmm. We have a guy who does this, too. AWESOME sammiches.

I read this thread a couple weeks ago, and have been hankering for this ever since. Today I went to Carone's and got a couple rings of their homemade sausage, some peppers and onions and steak rolls, and just DID IT. Yum, yum, yum!
