Sometimes I sit in a corner and wonder why Kenyans are so reserved with their foods. Rice is either steamed or pilau, sweet potatoes are boiled or cooked in stew, sausages are grilled or pan fried. How boring is life that is lived in a box!!!! The world of food should never be put in a box. There are 10’s of ways to prepare any one dish. Altering a dish by even one ingredient can give your meal a new twist.

This sausages are so easy to make, cook your sausage, caramelise your onions, add some sweet chilli sauce add back the sausages and BAM!! a pimped up sausage meal.You can have them as is with pancakes in the morning or stuff them into bun and make a sandwich. It;s a breakfast, brunch and light lunch  dish. How much better can it get?
