Killer Potato Salad

I've managed to combine a few recipes to create a really tasty potato salad. All you need are:

Potatoes, cooked and chopped up of course
(Thick) Sour Cream
Wholegrain Mustard
Hard boiled eggs, chopped
Bacon, again cooked and chopped up of course
Scallions or Green Onions, chopped
Gherkins, chopped
Dill, to taste

Mix it up as you like and chill, then serve!

Italian Sausage & Pepper Sandwiches

This is a basic recipe and I normally don't like it very much but I've found that I much prefer the style of Italian sausages at the Aussie butcher than back home..less fat and just a better consistency. You'll need:

Italian Sausages
Red Pepper/Capsicum, sliced up
Onions, sliced up
Seasoning (for Aussies, bolognese seasoning will do, for Yanks I'd suggest oregano, rosemary, thyme)
Mustard (yes, as blasphemous as using ketchup on hot dogs, but it adds something)

Saute pepper and onions until very soft. Add in seasonings at end. In the meantime, place sausages under the broiler until nice and crispy. Toast buns and made yr sandwich;)

BBQ sauce

What's your favourite sauce? I bought a few at USA Foods Myer 'shop' the other week and really like the Open Pit Brown Sugar version. It was sooooooo much better than anything Australia has to offer that I'm going to have to spend the extra money to buy some once in a while, as the ribs I made with it were kick 'arse'. Nothing like combining the Aussie butcher with proper American BBQ sauce.
