Our easy method for pan-fried sausages will help you cook your favorite links to golden-brown perfection. The secret is to prick the sausages with a fork to release the fat needed to crisp them up during the final stage of cooking. Serve them with an assortment of cheeses for a satisfying appetizer, or make them dinner with a crusty loaf of bread, pickles, mustard, and roasted vegetables.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Prick sausages all over with a fork, and transfer to a skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium heat. Fill skillet with enough water to reach a quarter of the way up sides of sausages. Simmer, covered, until sausages are cooked through and water evaporates, 10 to 15 minutes. (If sausages have cooked through but water has not evaporated, uncover, and continue to cook until water evaporates.)
