Poke sausages with a fork. Divide 1/4 cup of olive oil between two large, heavy skillets & heat over medium heat. Divide the sausages between the skillets & cook, until well browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. About halfway through browning the sausages, whack the garlic with the flat side of a knife and toss half the cloves into each skillet. Transfer the browned sausages and garlic to a 13x9 baking dish, leaving the fat behind.
