Sausages
This is one of Mark’s favorite stuffings. He loves to make stuffing and is very particular about it — he makes his own cornbread or sourdough bread, makes sure it’s not too sweet, and dries it just right so it doesn’t get mushy. The right Italian sausage is also a must — a little hot sausage with a bit of sweet sausage to balance it out. He only makes it a few times a year and wants it all to himself. Believe us, you’ll find the results are well worth the effort, and we’ve found ourselves on many a night forgoing the silverware and hovering over this dinner, picking at the meat and stuffing until it was all gone. You can substitute sweet and hot turkey sausage for the Italian sausages, if you prefer. Click here to see The Ultimate Thanksgiving Countdown: Getting Saucy.

Both sausage (in the freezer) and beans (in the pantry) are great bomb shelter foods. Keep them on hand at all times for emergencies, such as daily hunger. If you have access to a butcher, that's the best place to find good sausage; and if you must use chicken, use chicken. Just make sure it's Italian-style. Theoretically the beans serve enough for two; what's left will be delicious the next day (or the day after that), at room temperature. If you cooked an extra sausage, slice it and stir it in with the leftover beans before refrigerating.  Carolynn Carreño is the writer of the weekly column Cooking for One (Two if You're Lucky).

Italian Sausage with Balsamic Tomatoes, Arugula, Tomatillos, and Feta
SWAT team hot dogs had me thinking of my favorite summer grilling and baseball game fare — Italian sausage. I decided to take this favorite and put a little twist on it by adding some of my favorite ingredients. I filled the toasted buns with balsamic sautéed tomatoes, lightly heated arugula, chopped tomatillos, and feta, and topped all of this with sweet Italian sausage. The product was a fresher-tasting (without compromising on the sausage) sausage, complete with bun, toppings, and a little bit of kick. My tip: add hot sauce to enhance the flavor and provide some extra spice.  Click here to see 8 Creative Hot Dog Recipes.
