Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Baked Potato Puffs

 

 

For Breakfast it was a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage links and a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, I was set to start my day. After Breakfast I Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Potato Puffs 008headed up to the local Kroger, I needed a few items and Mom needed a couple of things. Back home got everything put away and did some light cleaning. I spent the afternoon yesterday over seeing Dad at the rehab center. He’s finally getting stronger and walking with a walker on his own. He’ll be home Tuesday! So anyway I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep last night, Phantom Pains started a little after midnight. Hate dealing with those, so painful and aggravating! For dinner tonight I prepared a Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

 

 

 

Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Potato Puffs 001

While digging in the freezer I found a couple of packages of Bluegrass Deliciously Lean Bratwurst. These are so hard to find in this area, I had to write Blue Grass Meats last year because no local stores had any of them in stock. Finally Kroger started to carry them for a while so I had bought a couple of packages of them and forgot I had them, until yesterday!

 

 

 

 
Love the Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat. To prepare them; Just add the Brats to a large skillet and add water, until the Brats are half way covered. Bring them to a brisk boil but then immediately Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Potato Puffs 007_cropturn down the heat to a very low boil, more of a simmer than an active boil. Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then finish off in a pan with just the Brats and a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get a nice crispy char and finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! Served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 
Then for a side dish I prepared something new, Alexia Potato Puffs. To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w Baked Potato Puffs 002degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. And Bam got another Keeper Potato Product! Browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
