Breakfast Sausage : Rawsome Connie's Kitchen
A couple of weeks back I decided to give another sausage recipe a try. My first one was one of my all time favorite Filipino sausages called longanisa and Astig vegan was able to recreate and veganize it. I thought the taste was close to spot on, but the texture needed some work and from that day I decided I wanted to figure out how to get the texture right....because I want me some longanisa on the daily like I used haha.
I found RawsomeConnie's Breakfast Sausage on YouTube just perusing around and came across her recipe. As I watched her video she described these breakfast sausages as a recipe that was used in the World War II when there was famine because they didn't have the "luxury" of eating meat...which isn't so much of a luxury when you take into account the cruelty that goes into eating meat...buuut they had to make do with what they had. Since she said this and because it's such an old recipe with history I decided to give it a try.
I was absolutely amazed by the texture as well as the taste. I have to say it was pretty damn spot on and a great working recipe to manipulate to your hearts desire. I will definitely be using RawsomeConnie and Astig Vegans recipe to create the perfect lonangisa :).
WORD OF ADVISE: When simmering your sausage in broth...be sure not to over salt this. As your sausages simmer in the broth they will take in all that delicious flavor. The salt in both the broth and sausage may become overwhelming as the brkristaoth reduces...I found this out the hard way BUT I still ate it soo that explains how much I ended up enjoying them. Anyways....try it out and let me know what you think!

When you watch my video you will see that I ended up substituting a few ingredients as I did not have them and did not feel like going to the store to pick up some.
