A texas styled smoked Jalapeno, garlic sausage, a foot long, 60% beef 40 pork, fresh garlic, seeded jalapenos, pinch of cumin, salt. Each sausage is 6 ozs. 2 to a platter, 1 in any combo platter, I serve it with a peppered, cream gravy, let me tell you, this is really good eating, pics to come!

        Ancient One, honestly, it's my hobby and passion, I think about food I would like to see on a menu if I walked into a new place, then make it happen if I consider it in the "crave" food catagory. I figure my tastes are no different than 95% of the public. Not bragging but I am a naturally good cook, I know my seasonings, temps, etc. and the ballet necessary to get it in front of the customer asap. I take great joy in having folks eat something I dreamed up, come up and tell me damn that was good. People will drive many, many miles for food they got a crave for!
        It also gives me new thread material!

            The sausage itself sounds great but I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around the gravy...I automatically go into "brat mode" and picture any sausage on a hard roll with a little mustard!

              Brad, think Country fried steak, creamy pepper gravy, on my seasoned sausage, it really works well, I've not seen it anywhere else but that doesn't mean it's not really tasty together, which is exactly what I'm looking for here.

                That's what snared me, the gravy, instead of same-old same-old. Me likee different.

                F'rinstance, I used to make a sandwich that included the following: A Farmer John red hot, split and pan-fried with sliced onions. Those two items were added to on onion hamburger bun that had been broiled with garlic butter and shredded mozz. A big dollop of marinara sauce was added to everything, followed by a generous handful of freshly grated Parm or Romano and some freshly sliced green onion rounds.

                It was a hit, and I have no idea why I don't make them anymore.

                              LOL! Indeed I am, You cannot believe how many people bolt from there and want to stay here waiting to get picked up, because once you leave, that's it, NO getting back in even if it's 20 below zero outside. They never have any money, or phone, so inevitably I end up letting them use the phone, give them free grub, and hang till their ride shows...a random act of kindness...so glad I'm not in their shoes!

                                            Chewer, that looks pleanty Texas to me! We eat our share of cream gravy down here. Mostly on Chicken Fried Steak but hey... why not on a jalapeno sausage. Looks great!

                                            Oh, and tha sides look great also!

                                              but you forgot the garlic  mashed potatoes. 
                                              Or dirty rice. What does one sop up the gravy with?
