These lightly seasoned meat patties are a Danish home-cooked supper staple. This recipe is from my Grandma Sorenson, who raised her daughters during the Great Depression in a converted chicken coop in Los Angeles. Served with pan gravy, good Danes would have an onion and cheese bread with butter to go with this, as well as red cabbage and a good beer.
Growing up, this was the one dish we always looked forward to. We only had it twice a year, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Before Grandma passed away, she gave us the recipe. Enjoy.
This is a quick and easy appetizer that I received from a friend and tweaked to make it my own... I use a combination of hot and sweet bulk Italian sausage, which is easy to find in Upstate New York, where I live. If you cannot find bulk Italian sausage, buy links, remove the casings and squeeze out the sausage to cook. Don't be thrown off by the strange ingredient combination, these taste wonderful and your guests will be shocked when you share the recipe!
My all-time favorite recipe, which my Dad makes every year on New Years Day for the college Bowl games. I prefer the ham hocks, but you can substitute a ham bone for them. To slice the sausage easier, put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes first. The longer you cook it the creamier the beans get; I love to let it simmer all day, the smell is wonderful. Serve with hot rice.
This easy, spicy pork recipe is very delicious and very filling as well!
Kielbasa, peppers and onions get a flavorful touch from apples and fresh garlic. Quick and easy!!! Serve with warm bread.

In this kickass riff on a classic Wisconsin butter burger, I incorporate some other great Wisconsin ingredients: butter and beer!! No man can resist the pure greatness of this burger...
Yeah, you read that right, bucko. Sausage *and* tater tots. Together. How have we put a man on the moon and not managed this yet?
A huge stew. Only advised for those with huge appetites and large amounts of work to do, such as hauling or lifting.

Here's a filling, hearty spaghetti sauce you'll want to make again and again.
Just a casserole, really, but of *course* the French have to call it something different. Still, it has bacon, so we forgive.
A quick-cooking take on the New Orleans favorite, jambalaya.
Forget apple or pumpkin, this is a man's pie. Includes all the man food groups--spicy, hot doggy, and cheesy.
Authentic Cajun stew. How do we know? Okra and andouille sausage. Wouldn't be a cajun stew without those. It would be like a fishing trip without beer and sandwiches.
A simple and very filling sausage and pasta stew that cooks fast and gets a flavor kick from apple juice.
