Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Turkey Sausage, Rotini Pasta, and Cheese

 

 

Cast Iron Skillet Turkey Sausage, Rotini Pasta, and Cheese 013
It was a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, lightly topped with I Can’t Believe….) and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. After Breakfast I headed outside to get a little yard work done as early as I could. It’s going to be a hot one outside today, high in the mid 90’s and high humidity, heat index at 100 degrees and rain showers. Then went to Kroger for Mom, she needed a couple of items. Back home did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight a Cast Iron Skillet Turkey Sausage, Rotini Pasta, and Cheese.

 

 

I came across a recipe in a food magazine that sounded good, but it had a ton of calories and carbs in it. So I made Cast Iron Skillet Turkey Sausage, Rotini Pasta, and Cheese 003some adjustments to it to lower everything and came up with this recipe I’m preparing tonight, Cast Iron Skillet Turkey Sausage, Rotini Pasta, and Cheese. To make the dish I’ll need; 1 cup uncooked Rozini Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Rotini Pasta (Cook Rotini according to package directions; drain), 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1 1/2 tablespoons Flour, 1/2 cup 2% Milk, 1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko, 1 tablespoon chopped Parsley, 8 ounces Velveeta 2% Cheese (cubed), 1 link (cut into 1″ slices) Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage.

 

 

Cast Iron Skillet Turkey Sausage, Rotini Pasta, and Cheese 004

To prepare the dish I got out my favorite cooking utensil, the Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray. To start I cooked the Rotini according to package directions; drain. As the Rotini was boiling I mixed the Panko, Parsley, and Olive Oil together in a bowl.

 

 

 

 

Cast Iron Skillet Turkey Sausage, Rotini Pasta, and Cheese 007

Next in the Cast Iron Skillet, melted the Butter over medium heat. Stirred in the Flour until smooth; gradually whisk in Milk. Bring it to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the Cheese; cook and stir until melted. Stir in Rotini and Sausage, until well mixed and covered. Finally, spread the Panko Mixture on top and bake at 350°F for 25 minutes.

 

 

 

 

Cast Iron Skillet Turkey Sausage, Rotini Pasta, and Cheese 011
What a dish, a Comfort Food for sure! Everything just blends together to make one delicious Skillet of goodness! The Rotini Pasta covered with the Cheese and mixtures and as always the Butterball Turkey Sausage is a meal within itself! And the Panko topping gives nice texture and crunch. A ‘Keeper Recipe” for sure. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Had a Peach Diet Snapple to drink. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

Today’s Menu: Chili and Cheese Nachos

 

** The late posting was due to high winds here in the area that brought down power lines. Our area had no internet service until well after midnight.

 

 

chili-and-cheese-nachos-009 (1)
For Breakfast I made my Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I really enjoy this for Breakfast. In the 30’s this morning but it was sunny all day and had a high around 50 degrees. Took Mom’s car and had it cleaned and washed and then had to stop by the bank before heading to home. Did some cleaning around the house, straightened up the pantry and the freezer. Pitched a few items out of the freezer. For dinner tonight an easy made comfort food. I prepared Chili and Cheese Nachos.

 

 

Chili and Cheese Nachos 001
One of those days where something lighter sounded right for dinner so it was Chili and Cheese Nachos! Make a bed of Tostito’s Multi Grain Scoops. Top with Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, Black Olives, Green Olives, Sliced Jalapenos, all covered up with a blanket of Sargento Shredded Mozzarella. That’s my Dinner Tonight!

I used Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack by their selves, they bake and hold their shape better than most chips. For my toppings I used 1 can of Mario Sliced Black Olives. Anyone that uses small cans of Sliced Black Olives know what a pain they can be opening sometimes. Not these, they come in a can with a pull tab About time! For my other toppings I sliced up some Green Olives, Mezzetta Deli Sliced Jalapeno Peppers, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, a few shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella. Put all that together and it’s nothing but good!

 
To prepare I preheat the oven at 400 degrees and sprayed a glass baking dish with Pam and layer everything in. I first opened up 2 cans of the Hormel Chili with Beans and heated them up in a sauce pan, as it was heating I added about 6 shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and mixed. After the Chili was ready I added 4 tablespoons of Chili to the chili-and-cheese-nachosbaking dish, then I added my Scoops (Chips). I then added the Sliced Black Olives and Sliced Green Olives, the remainder of the Chili, Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Love These), and then top everything the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or so until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. I love Nachos, nothing better than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! Also had an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili

 

Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili 009
After a light Breakfast I went to Walmart to finish up some Christmas Shopping done. And what a warm morning to start, about 60 degrees! We had a high near 70 but cloudy with light showers. Better than 20 degrees and snow! Did manage to get the cart out for a while in between showers. Early today I got a Crock Pot full of 3 Bean Buffalo Chili on! Couldn’t wait for dinner tonight!

 

 
I love this stuff! Made with Wild Idea Buffalo Ground Round 99% Lean Buffalo, 3 different Beans, and a load of Spices. I enjoy this with Cornbread, Johnny Cakes, or just a big bowl of it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Cheddar or Shredded Smoked Gouda and a teaspoon of Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. Due to limited freezer space around the Holidays I hadn’t had or made any in a while. But I just got an order of Wild Idea Buffalo Products I had ordered, made room in the freezer and made a big batch of it. Hope you love it as much as I do!

 

Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili 002

As I said I’ve been out of Chili for a while now so I’m ready! It’s loaded with nothing but good things. I use 2 lbs. of Wild Idea Buffalo Ground Round (99% Lean) which is the best tasting Ground Buffalo that I’ve found. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (15 oz.) Chili Beans, 1 Can (15 oz.) Kidney Beans (rinsed), and 1 Can (15 oz.) Great Northern Beans (rinsed). Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Unseeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Chopped Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. After about 3 hours in the Crock Pot, the kitchen is filled with an incredible aroma of Chili!
* A note on the Beans I used. I normally use Bush Beans and used Bush Beans this time but i used the new Bush’s Chili Beans (Red Beans) in Mild Chili Sauce, Bush’s Chili Beans (Kidney Beans) in Mild Chili Sauce, and then my usual Bush’s Cannellini Beans (White Kidney Beans). The new Bush’s Beans in Chili Sauce work great, the Beans are bit bigger, excellent flavor, and a hint of heat.

 

Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili 004
When ready let Chili Fest begin! With the sweetness of the Buffalo combined with all those spices and beans, it’s just hard to beat! You can serve it many ways; in a bowl or mug and top it with your favorite Cheese or Chopped Green Onions with a side of Oyster Crackers. Another way to have it is served on top of a Johnny Cake (Cornbread) or have a side of Cornbread with it. I’ll even use some of the Chili to make a Chili and Cheese Omelet in the morning for Breakfast! Anyway you want to have it will work. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

3-bean-buffalo-chili-001 (2)

Started my morning with a bowl of Cheerios Honey Nut Medley Crunch, my favorite Cheerios Cereal. After my morning workout I did some light housekeeping. It’s one beautiful day in the neighborhood outside today! Still a light cool breeze bu t a high in the 60’s and sunny. Ran an errand for Mom, stopped by the bank, and the post office and back home. For dinner tonight one of my favorites, Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili.

 

 
Well I’m using my last container of the Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili I had in the freezer, time for another batch soon! I sat in the fridge overnight to thaw. To reheat it I just got the amount I wanted and put it in a small sauce pan and reheated it on medium low heat, till heated through. I love this Chili!

 

 

To make this Chili Comfort Food I needed; 2 lbs. Wild Idea Buffalo Ground Round (99% Lean) which is the best tasting Ground Buffalo that I’ve found. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (15 oz.) Chili Beans, 1 Can (15 oz.) Kidney Beans (rinsed), and 1 Can (15 oz.) Great Northern Beans (rinsed). Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Unseeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.)
