Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast I made a Breakfast Sandwich using a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin, al fresco Country Style Breakfast Chicken Patty, and a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar. Winter is coming to Ohio here! A rain and snow mix with a high of 39 degrees. Good day to stay in and be a slug all day! And that’s what I did, nothing! For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo from last night’s Delicious Dinner. I can never waste the Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo! I left the original post from yesterday for ingredients and directions. Take Care All!

 

Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, the Rice, Spices, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage makes the perfect Gumbo! Plus the leftovers are just as good if not better! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.

 

It’s very easy to prepare, it takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continued to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered for another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Rice, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too, I took a small bowl over to my neighbor also, she always enjoys that. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.
