Today’s Menu: Jambalaya with Cajun Style Smoked Sausage and Baked Italian Bread




For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and 74 degrees out, with rain showers in the afternoon. After the night I had, I had no plans on doing too much. I had one of those long and sleepless nights while dealing with Phantom Pains, and they were bad! So I spent much of the afternoon catching up on some rest and sleep. For Dinner tonight I prepared Jambalaya with Cajun Style Smoked Sausage and Baked Italian Bread.



For the Sausage I used something new, Zatarain’s Cajun Style Smoked Sausage. I came across this at Meijer the other day and thought I would give it a try.




I used Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya Mix (Reduced Sodium) for my base for the Jambalaya. I use Zatarain’s Products whenever I can, love the flavor and seasoning of all their products. To prepare it I just followed the easy instructions on the box. Mixed 2 1/2 cups of Water and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and brought it to a boil. Added the Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix and my Cajun Style Smoked Sausage, I had sliced the Sausage into small bite size pieces before adding. Returned it to a boil, and then reduced the heat to low. Covered and simmered for about 25 minutes till most of the moisture had been absorbed. Removed it from the heat and let it rest for about 5 minutes before I served it.


The Zatarain’s Cajun Style Smoked Sausage and Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya Mix make a perfect pairing! Love this Sausage, nice seasoning and delicious! I added a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to the mix also, nothing like a little heat to liven things up! This makes one delicious dish. I also baked a loaf of Meijer Italian Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyers Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
