Shirley Q you do not have to add meat to this recipe. But if you want to brown ground beef and drain fat . Then add to onions and garlic after they have become limp.

This is a Chicago sports event favorite. Sunday Afternoon Backyard Grill-0ut Saturday afternoon wash fresh (not cooked) Italian or Polish sausage links. Place links side by side in a pan or shallow dish. Pour enough beer over links to accumulate to about one inch in depth. Add crushed cloves of fresh garlic (1 clove for every 3 links), and marinate overnight. Sunday, fire up the grill and wait for the coals to get about half gray. Then grill the sausage until done (the sausage will shrink considerably when done). Serve grilled links with fresh mini French or Italian bread loaves, and lots of liquid to wash it down. Have lots of german and regular mustard on hand, and chopped sweet onions for a special treat. Yummmmmm.

Im only 12 years old and is looking for differrent way to make eggs besides scrambled, hard boiled, or sunnyside up. Thank you.

Bill submitted: Miscellaneous Recipe

Hey Charlie, One Way I've done eggs that are great whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner is to heat a large tin of spagetti sauce in a frying pan, when bubbles break the surface, crack open a couple of eggs into the sauce without breaking the yolks, cover the tops with sauce too and let cook about 4 minutes. while they are cooking, get the toaster going. put the cooked eggs onto toast, (the yolks should be still runny) and enjoy with a shake of salt and pepper. Sounds strange perhaps, but thats the way we like it here, my kids won't eat them any other way! Honestly!!

To Charlie who wants to cook eggs differently Egg in a Frame ----------------------------- Take a glass with a small mouth, such as an orange juice glass, or a buscit cutter is even better. Take 2 slices of bread and cut a hole in the center of each with the glass or the buscit cutter. Eat or throw away the bread you have cut out. Put butter on the remaining bread or the "frame". Heat up a skillet on medium heat. Place your "frame" butter side down into the skillet. Then put another pat of butter in the center of the hole. Crack an egg into the hole where the pat of butter is. Make sure that the yolk is in the center of the hole. Let it brown on the bottom, Flip it over to let the other side cook, then pop a piece of cheese on the top while the other side is browning. And you have egg in a frame. Do the second piece of bread the same way, and you have a neat breakfast or an energizing snack... :)
