The Truth About Pork Sausage
Tuesday, September 03, 2013
There is a breakfast at work and I am bringing this breakfast casserole thing I make. (Its kind of like quiche, but with chunks of bread on the bottom instead of a crust.) I decided to use a tube of bulk pork sausage I had hanging around in the freezer from a $0.25 coupon.
Being the good Sparker, I fried the sausage in a dry pan and then drained it thoroughly on paper towel. Yeah, I nibbled a piece or two, but not a whole lot. I was getting ready to finish assembly when I decided to learn something. I tared my scale and measured the post-cook weight, after the fat had been drained off.
0.5 lbs of cooked sausage. This means that HALF of what was in that tube was fat! I mean **really**??!? We all know its fatty, and a sometimes food, but 50%? Even if you put an ounce back for my nibbles, that's just an insane amount of fat.
What color crayon should I use for "Enlightened"?
