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

 
For Breakfast it was a bowl of Cheerio’s Cereal along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 014Breakfast I started a load of laundry for Mom and then headed out to the local Kroger for Mom. She just needed a few items so I did the shopping for her. Then on the way back I stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home did a little yard work before the heat and humidity set in for the day. Done with all the major chores so just did a few things around the house that needed done. After Lunch headed up to the hospital to see Dad. He turns 95 today! We thought he was going to get to come home today but he had a bad night last night, sick to his stomach and didn’t sleep all night. So he’ll be there till next week. For Dinner tonight it’s Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies).

 

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 001

So tonight it’s Beans and Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush’s Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

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 it simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages. I first sliced them up into bite size pieces then fried them on medium until they started to brown and removed them from the heat and put them in a small bowl and set aside.

Then using the same skillet I fried the Sausage in I fried 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, actually I fried 5 slices actually. Always remember when preparing Bacon to always add 2 extra slices. Because you know you’ll grab a couple of slices, it’s called the Bacon Factor or Bacon Math. I fried it up nice and crisp and when done crumbled it up into small pieces and added it to the Beans. Sausage, Bacon, and Beans are such a natural combo, Bacon gives it that wonderful smoky flavor.

I love dishes that you can set low and let them simmer, to me it seems to give food a much richer and deeper flavor. After a couple of hours I added the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages and added it to the Beans. Kept the heat on low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokiness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans. I just love all the flavors, a real comfort food favorite! Another plus is the cleanup, just one dutch Oven and 1 skillet to clean. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
