A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into this dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don’t like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own!
Half of a loaf of whole grain bread, cubed and toasted
small breakfast sausages, sliced
large onion, sliced
cup of grated cheddar cheese
sprig of fresh tarragon
Salt and pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add sausages and onions. Sauté until golden brown.
