Delicious and Easy Garlic Sausage Recipe

Believe me when I say no one makes a dish of delicious and flavorful garlic sausage quite like my mom. In the spirit of Oktoberfest, we’re sharing her super easy recipe for making tasty stovetop garlic sausage.

Simple Yet Tasty Garlic Pork Sausage Recipe

The nice thing about this recipe is that it requires very few ingredients to prepare, yet the final dish is full of flavor. Each of the steps is key to ensuring a tasty, tender dish from boiling the sausage long enough to pan searing for a crispy, golden coating.

Requiring only the garlic pork sausage, oil, water and white wine, this recipe is about straight-forward and simple as it gets.

To keep the finished garlic pork sausage moist, add a 1/2 cup of water to the pan after removing the sausage. Mix the water in the pan with the leftover grease and stir together until mixture becomes hot. Pour the mixture over top of the cooked sausage to keep from drying out.

Serve your Garlic Sausage Alongside Any of These Delicious Side Dishes

Although our preference is to serve this main dish alongside grandma’s homemade white bread, apple sauce (recipe coming soon) and potato pancakes (also coming soon), any one of these other sides also pair wonderfully with a plate of sausage.

Hi Terri. Thanks for pointing that out. We've updated the recipe to clarify using garlic pork sausage and a suggestion for adding garlic if using unseasoned sausages. Jane
