Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

A really cool day out today. A friend of mine is in town from Phoenix and we met for lunch. He was wearing a jacket and was freezing, he’s not used to this weather! The breeze is what’s making it so chilly, a really cold wind. Yesterday I had went to Meijer, who has the best selection of Jennie – O Turkey Products. I had picked up a package of Jennie – O Turkey Sausage Links. I made some for Breakfast and noticed the package was different and it had “Lean” on the package. I looked at the Nutrition on back and for 2 Turkey Links it was only 65 calories! I’ll have to buy the “Lean” from now on can’t beat that, the normal I believe was at 90 calories for 2. For dinner tonight a classic, (Beans and Weenies) Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage.

 

 

 
Growing up who didn’t like the old-fashioned Campbell’s Beans and Weenies, that and Spaghetti-O’s! Well I wanted some Beans and Weenies but I jazzed it up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into bite size pieces), 1 can of Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 can of Bush’s Reduced Sodium Black Beans (drained and rinsed), 1/4 of a medium-sized White Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 tablespoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and a 1/3 cup of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

To prepare everything, it can’t be much easier. I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! You could make this in a crock pot on low and let it go all day or by using a medium size sauce pan and get done even quicker. I love dishes that you can set low and let them simmer. After a couple of hours I sliced up one of the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and added it to the Beans. I then increased the heat to medium for about another hour and then reduced it back down to medium low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
