As some of you know Jake ( TNJAKE TNJAKE ) and I agreed to do an informal, unofficial gift exchange this year. He's way ahead of me posting his stuff and I'm doing this one in reverse of how he posted his: posting a meal before all the goodies. That's because there is still one package pending delivery, but this meal needs to be posted. In the first two packages was an amazing assortment of exotic meats and sausages. He really embraced the concept of the exchange by sending stuff that I most likely would have never bought...and he did an amazing job!! As soon as I saw this sausage I knew I had to do something with it immediately.

Here is the sausage

Grabbed a handful of whole garlic cloves and put them in a CI skillet with some garlic EVOO. Didn't count till they were cooking but that's 17 cloves

Weather was nasty outside so decided to do everything in the house. Sausages in another CI skillet.

Garlic all nicely caramelized

Sausages done

Get the Alfredo sauce going. Just heavy cream, a couple of different cheeses, and a splash of milk (it was a bit too thick). The oil will incorporate into the sauce. Took this pic a couple minutes too early.

Dinner plated with a really nice salad and a couple of garlic butter bread sticks

This dinner was amazing!! That sausage is perfection in a casing...absolutely exquisite. The most perfectly balanced flavors I think I've ever had and melded beautifully with the Alfredo sauce. Jake hit the nail smack-dab on the head choosing this one. It is not a heavy flavor, and not at all gamy, just wonderful. I cannot thank you enough Jake for sending this. As soon as I've sampled the rest of the stuff you sent I'll be opening an account with D'Artagnan, I can promise you that. Something tells me that this company could be a game changer for us.

Sincere thanks and Merry Christmas to all,

Very nice. I’ve only ever done Italian sausages and (blackened) chicken in Alfredo. Not sure why I never branched out. I’ll have to remember this.

Heck yeah Robert that looks delicious. Glad you liked the sausages. We found out about D'ARTAGNAN a couple years ago. They have just about any wild game meat you could want plus a variety of other things. I have 2 pheasants in the deep freeze from them I need to cook. Final package should be arriving tomorrow!
