ige's lunch today ("may baon ako byena soseyg"). :)
i like vienna sausage, but i don't eat them straight out of the can. they look too pale, too "raw" for me, and so i do a couple of things to them before they move in to my stomach. kinda defeats the purpose of its being 'ready-to-eat', huh? oh well. good luck to me when i have to eat them "raw" during an emergency!
so what do i do to vienna sausage?
A - The American (or so i think, obviously stereotyping)
i put all the sausages in the toaster and heat them up until the skin is almost brown, and almost crunchy. i turn them over every once in a while to prevent the skin from sticking to the toaster tray, and for an 'even' brown. (not that it matters.) while they're toasting, i get a tall tumbler and pour in some coke. then i hunt for some potato chips (preferably classic lay's--mmm!). when the sausages are done i put them on a small plate and, munching chips between sausages, i watch a movie. i would probably die in a few years if i did this often.
B - The Pinoi (just because i think i'm not the only one who does this in this part of the world)
as with The American, i heat up the sausages in the toaster until they're brown. while they're tanning, i prepare around 3-4 pieces of pan de sal (or "tasty" bread) and grab some mayonnaise. when the sausages are gorgeously done, i put them in a bowl and mash them with a fork. sometimes i put the pan de sal in the toaster to warm while i mix in mayo with the sausage. then i fill the pan de sal with the mayo-y, sausage-y goodness. great with coke or coffee. or iced tea. and some kundiman in the background, yo.
C - The Simple, Pero Rock (i'm staying away from stereotypes now)
open the can and put 'em in the pan. fry until satisfied, and you're done! oldskool, greasy and good--eat with bread or rice (or both). i think i must try this with beer. ;)
i enjoy them all, but my favorite would be The Pinoi. how about you, do you like vienna sausage too? (wow, that rhymed!)
