Today’s Menu: Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, as always! I went to Meijer to do some Christmas Shopping and Grocery’s. I went right after Breakfast to avoid the crowds, and it was crowded by the time I left! For Dinner tonight I’m preparing Dirty Rice with Turkey Italian Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

 

For the Dirty Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Dirty Rice. The Mix includes a Long Grain Rice Mix with Vegetables and Spices. I added the Sausage. Really looking forward to this meal!

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; I first prepared the Turkey Sausage. I used Johnsonville Turkey Italian Sausages. I bought these from Meijer which carries the the full line of Johnsonville Products. First time using these, and they look delicious! Started by browning the Turkey Sausages in a 3-quart saucepan. Removed them from the skillet to plate and sliced the Sausages into bite size pieces and returned them to the skillet. When done I drained the fat. Stirred in 2 1/2 cups of Water and the Rice Mix into the saucepan until it was well blended. Brought it to a boil. Reduced the heat to low and covered. Simmered for 25 minutes until the Rice was tender.

 

 

Removed the sauce pan from the heat. Let it stand for 5 minutes, fluffed the Rice up and served! Delicious, the Sausage is so good and Rice and Mix all made some fantastic Dirty Rice and Sausage! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish! I loved this dish tonight, plenty leftover for tomorrow’s Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ZATARAIN’S DIRTY RICE
Rice is a major Louisiana crop and a kitchen staple. This beloved dish evolved as home cooks discovered that adding spices and leftover meat would create rice that tastes a whole lot better – even if it looks a little “dirty.” Dirty rice is infused with flavors of onion and bell pepper. The dish is traditionally prepared with giblets, but Zatarain’s Dirty Rice Mix is delicious with ground beef, ground pork, ground turkey or any other meat of your choosing.
