Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage and Muenster Cheese Dogs w/ Baked Ruffles Chips


Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs 004
Woke up to about 2″ of snow, not much at all but the temperature dropped to the low teens with a wind chill of around 8 degrees. So after it snowed the wind froze everything, which is making some slick roads out there today.Plenty of sunshine but not doing a lot of good. Warmer temperatures on the way for the weekend though! Shoveled what snow and ice I could and cleaned off the cars of the blowing snow and inside for the day. Basically did a whole lot of nothing today. For dinner tonight it’s Smoked Turkey Sausage and Muenster Cheese Dogs w/ Baked Ruffles Chips.

I had some leftover Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage from when I made the Jambalaya so I used that for my dinner tonight. Cut the remaining Sausage into to 2 pieces to give me a couple of Sausage Dogs. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out bursting with flavor and just flat-out delicious! For the Buns I used Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Buns. Before putting them on the Buns I had added a Half a Slice of Simple Truth Muenster Cheese. I then topped the Sausage with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, love these things!Ruffles Baked Cheddar
To go with the Sausage Dogs I had some Ruffles Oven Baked Cheddar and Sour Cream Chips. It had been a while since I had any of these, a very good Chip! Their 120 calories, 20 net carbs, and 3.5 g fat per serving (13 chips). For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Frozen Greek Yogurt.
