Cuban Breakfast Recipe
This isn’t your typical Cuban breakfast. A typical Cuban breakfast consists of espresso with milk (cafe con leche) with toast (pan tostado).
Well, we’re going to kick it up a notch with this recipe.
You might not think of Cuban food and Italian sausage in the same thought. Well, neither had I until one morning way back when I was still dating my now Cuban husband. I woke up to this amazing smell wafting into the bedroom from the kitchen. It wasn’t familiar but it smelled so good I had to get up and see what it could be. What I discovered was my new favorite breakfast.
What I love about this sausage dish is you can of course eat it for breakfast but it also makes a great dinner. The longer it gets to simmer on low heat the sausage becomes more and more tender. This makes it a great make ahead dish, or you can double the recipe and freeze half.
As I have talked about before we are starting with a sofrito as the base. Sofrito is sautéed onions, bell peppers and garlic. Then we add tomato sauce and the seasoning. Another recipe that starts with a sofrito is Chicken Fricassee (Fricase de Pollo).
