Segment 5 (Cheryl's Recipe Corner)
  • Lemonada Shake Up
  • Description
    • It is fair time in the US... state fairs, county fairs, regional fares, etc.  SO, I decided to share a few recipes of food that you'll find at fairs in the Midwest.  This is our last episode of fair food, and this time it isLemonade Shake-Ups and Sausage, Pepper and Onion Sandwiches - Russ doesn't like either one, so you'll have to take MY word on the fact that they're yummy!
  • Ingredients
    • 2 cups water
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 3/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (6 to 8 lemons)
  • Directions
    • In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring water and sugar to a boil. Continue cooking 5 minutes, or until sugar is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Place in refrigerator to chill until ready to serve. When ready to serve, place 1/2 cup lemon syrup in a plastic drink shaker or 1-quart jar. Add equal amounts of cold water and ice as well as a lemon wedge, cover tightly, and shake vigorously 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into tall glasses over additional ice, garnish with lemon slices, and enjoy!
  • Sausage, Pepper and Onion Sandwiches
  • Ingredients
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 2 green bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch strips
    • 2 red bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch strips
    • 1 large onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 pound hot Italian rope sausage, cut into 2-inch lengths
    • 1/4 cup beer (optional)
    • 4 hoagie rolls, split
  • Directions
    • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking. Add peppers, onion, and salt; cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sausage and beer, if desired, and cook 10 to 15 more minutes, or until sausage is no longer pink in center, stirring occasionally. Evenly divide mixture onto hoagie rolls and serve immediately. If you want these a bit saucier, feel free to top each sandwich with 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce -- just don't forget the napkins!
