Today’s Menu: Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made Breakfast for everyone. Mom and Dad usually have McDonald’s but this morning I’m making Breakfast. I prepared a package of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausages, made Scrambled Eggs for everyone, made some packages of Instant Grits, toasted 2 types of Bread – Raisin Bread and Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread. Mom and Dad wanted the Raisin Bread, not a big fan of it myself. I also made Coffee for the Folks and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for myself. Outside it’s in the 90’s, very humid, and rain on and off. So between the rain and humidity there wasn’t a lot going on outside. So I did some cleaning inside, vacuum and dusted. Then took the brushes out of the vacuum and cleaned them and washed out the vacuum filter. Moved on to the Pantry and straightened it up. Full day today. For Dinner tonight its Bluegrass Lean Bratwurst w/ Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans.

 

I used Blue Grass Lean Bratwurst which are 100 calories and 4 carbs per Brat, not bad at all for Brats. 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 turn 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 finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! Served it on a Kroger Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I also had some Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips. Then for dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar. Love these, only 80 calories and 12 net carbs per bar!

 

Then for a side I prepared some Bush’s Grillin’ Beans Bourbon and Brown Sugar. Not sure if I’ve had these before or not, but they sure are good! As all Bush Beans are. I just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated them until they started to simmer. For Dessert/Snack later I’m having a 100 Calorie Mini Bag Jolly Time Pop Corn. I hadn’t been able to find this anywhere until I found some at Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday.

A TASTE OF TENNESSEE
BUSH’S® BOURBON AND BROWN SUGAR GRILLIN’ BEANS®

When you’re grilling your favorite meats, you want a side that can hold its own—like the bold taste of BUSH’S® Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans®. We slow-cook plump navy beans in a robust sauce generously seasoned with brown sugar, molasses, a bold blend of spices and a touch of natural bourbon flavor for a side dish that’s decidedly different.
