    I've followed recipes for omurice that use ketchup in the sauce/rice and that never tastes right. I need to find a can of that demi glace sauce. It shouldn't be too hard to find in LA, there are a lot of Japanese markets out here.

    Japanese ketchup and mayo are sweeter than western kinds so the taste profile changes a bit.

    My wife and I had dinner at a very fancy restaurant a couple of days before Christmas, for our anniversary. When the dessert arrived and our server starts with, "This dish is inspired by our pastry chef's favorite drink - a pumpkin spice latte" my eyes almost rolled out of my head.

    That deconstructed pumpkin spice latte was pretty damn delicious though.

    Pumpkin Spice/Pie milkshakes are great, too

    I tried all dressed chips today. They seem like they'll go well with drunk cravings.

    Oh, come and shake me 'till I'm dry

    I wouldn't say Japanese mayo is sweeter... It doesn't have any sugar in it at all

    it's definitely richer, though. It's made with egg yolk instead of whole egg and includes MSG in the ingredient list.

    It tastes a bit sweeter and richer to me, because of the rice vinegar and egg yolks respectively.

    Ground sausage?

    So you grind up some meat and unmentionables, then make a sausage out of it, then you grind it again?

    Seems kind of unnecessary

    You just skip the "case the ground up meat, spices and unmentionables into a length of artificial intestine" step.
    It's still sausage, but it's not cased so it's ground sausage.

    I never got how you americans called what is basically ground meat sausage.

    Sausage needs a skin, or at least the sausage shape (that's the cheap shit).

    I always assumed that sausage was just the meat/spices, the casing was just there to make it easier to cure and store and eat the sausages (onna bun), but wasn't necessary for it to actually be called sausage.
    Didn't realize that was a specifically American thing.

    A good sausage link is definitely a fine thing. However, if your cuisine does not include sausage patties and sausage gravy, I can only offer my condolences.

    There are quite a lot of recipes in germany that call for the sausage meat to be pressed out and then cooked/fried etc. But they just come in the skin.

    This is a cologne dish called Himmel und Äed..translates to heaven and earth.

    Blood sausage, mashed potatoes and a kind of apple mush I cant remember the translation for. It's quite nice if you don't hate blood sausage/Black pudding.

    I used to love blood sausage, and then I had some severely undercooked version halfway through an ill-advised whisky bar tour of Dusseldorf, and I've never been able to look at it the same way after vomiting a mix of half digested blood sausage and Mai Tai into a blocked toilet on a regional train at midnight.

    Good times.

    Welcome to Germany I guess .

    But you can't really undercook blood sausage, normally we eat it cold on bread. It's already been cooked in the skin.

    I would wager the Mai Tai's and the Whisk(e)ys were more of the culprit here ;)

    I'm not saying that it gave me food poisoning, I just don't think there should have been that much ... oozing on the plate. From an aesthetic point of view if nothing else.

    Also you guys eat mettwurst, and I once found chicken schnitzel in a vending machine, so I think German children are given an adamantium stomach lining at birth.

    Depends on what you are trying to do with it
    Since the quality of spices or the sausage went down over the last year my brother feels they forced his hand as in the new year he is going to try his hand at sausage again.
    Just making bratwurst is going to be the fun part we have the tools and an idea just not the skins. I don't need the amount to make 5K of it I just need enough to make 1K

    I think the distinction between sausage and ground meat is pretty clear in the US. Ground meat is just the meat. Sausage can/does contain spices, non-meat items (like fruit or cheese), and potentially filler cereals.

    I think calling loose, spiced, ground meat "Sausage" comes from the same thinking that calls loose ground beef "Hamburger"

    It's just using the name of the most common example.

    Also when I first moved to North America, sausage was one of the lasting culture shocks.

    Back home, even the cheap grocery stores would have dozens of sausage varieties with different proteins, herbs, spices and additions like cheese or dried fruit and seasonal offerings

    Here in Vancouver, unless you go to a fancy butcher your sausage choices are Hot or Mild. and even if you do go to a fancy butcher they have maybe one lamb and rosemary sausage or something.
