Today’s Menu: Holiday Turkey Gumbo

 

 
For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and reheated a couple of slices of turky-and-sauage-gumbo-003the leftover Ham. Also the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not a lot going on today. It being Black Friday there was no way I was going around any shopping areas today! I did get out and go to the bank and stopped and got gas. Back home did a few things around the house. I’m having computer problems since yesterday morning. I can go to 2 or 3 sites or do a couple of functions and my computer becomes sluggish and sometimes freezes up, no solution yet I may have to call to have it looked at. I’m lost without my computer!! Anyway for Dinner tonight it was all leftovers. I prepared a Turkey Sandwich w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

 
For Dinner tonight I prepared a recipe based from a Zatarain’s Recipe I received in an email the other day, Holiday turky-and-sauage-gumbo-001Turkey Gumbo. I’ve left the original recipe at the end of the post. Mine differs in that I just used the Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix with Rice without adding additional ingredients. I’ve made the Gumbo Mix with Rice many times but usually I use Shrimp and Turkey Sausage. This time I’m substituting the Shrimp with leftover Jennie – O Turkey Breast. To prepare the dish I’ll need; 1 – Box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix with Rice, Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (I cooked this up ahead of time and sliced it into smaller pieces), leftover Jennie – O Turkey Breast (pulled and sliced), and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.

 
I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix with Rice for the Gumbo base. It’s very easy to prepare, takes about 25-30 turky-and-sauage-gumbo-002minutes. I just boiled the stock that was in the packet, sliced Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, and a few shakes of the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce for 15 minutes. Then I added the leftover Jennie – O Turkey Breast and simmered another 10 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready! It turned out fantastic! Nice flavor and plenty of Rice. The Butterball Turkey sausage and Jennie – O Turkey Breast worked great, made a nice hearty dinner. I just love leftovers! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
