Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage

 

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 73 degrees with rain and thunderstorms on and off today. After Breakfast I went to Wendy’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today. For Dinner tonight Cast Iron Skillet Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage.

 

 

I had not made this in a while and a Pizza sounded good for tonight! Cast Iron Skillet Pizza, it uses my favorite piece of cookware, the Cast Iron Skillet, and it’s making one of my favorite foods, Pizza. I use Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust when making my own Pizza. For my toppings I’m using; Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Ground Sausage, Sliced Mushrooms, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Original Pizza Sauce. Using a medium size Skillet, I fried the Jennie – O Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage ahead of time. When that was done I drained what little grease there was and put the Sausage in a small bowl, and set aside.

 

 

I preheated the oven to 425 degrees. I then took out a large Cast Iron Skillet, spraying it with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Got the tube of Pillsbury Pizza Crust from the fridge and removed it from the packaging. I then got a flour board out and added a little bit of flour and Cornmeal to it. I then took the Pizza Dough on it and formed a ball with it. Sprinkled on some Cornmeal and rolled it out and shaped it by hand I love that crunch texture Cornmeal gives the bottom of the Pizza Crust.

 

 

I added it to the Cast Iron Skillet and worked it out by hand, fully covering the bottom of the Skillet. I flipped the Dough Crust one time, that way I had a light coating of the Olive Oil on both sides. I then added my toppings; Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Ground Sausage, Sliced Mushrooms, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Original Pizza Sauce. Slid that baby into the oven and wait for it to get done! Baked it a total of about 15 minutes.

 

 

It came bubbling hot and just flat out delicious! All the toppings and Sauce work great together, this makes one delicious Pizza. As all Pizzas you decide what toppings you want to use. Really enjoyed this. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Chili Mac w/ Baked Crescent Rolls

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Rolled out to get the papers this morning and the cars and grass areas had snow on them, not a lot but slightly covered. For the day it was 38 degrees, partly cloudy and very windy that took the wind chill to around 33 degrees. Not such a great day for Opening Day here for the Cincinnati Reds. This was the only day that Mom and Dad would let me stay home from school back when I was in Elementary School. They knew how Baseball crazy I was! Opening Day around this area is like a National Holiday. So I had another bad day with my sinuses and sinus headache. If the weather would just stay warm or cold I would be fine but as long as our weather flips back and forth between the 2 my sinuses will continue to be bad. I wanted a hot meal and something easy to prepare. So I settled on Chef Boyardee Chili Mac w/ Baked Crescent Rolls.

 

First time I’ve had this in many of a year. As all Chef Boyardee products it’s easy to prepare and delicious! The Chili Mac is as it describes, Macaroni with Beef in Chili Gravy. To prepare it just empty the contents into saucepan. Heat over medium heat until warm, stirring occasionally. Ready to serve! Plenty of Macaroni along with plenty of Beef. And that Chili Gravy is so good, seasoned just right. There’s 270 calories and 23 net carbs per serving.

 

I also baked a small roll of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. I just love these, they go great with any meal. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links

 

To start this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nothing new here weather wise, another 2 more inches of snow fell. My neighbor across the street came over and shoveled it off then I spread salt on it to clear the driveway again! I have to have Mom out to Ross tomorrow morning for 2nd virus shot. Hopefully the weather won’t be bad. Not a lot more going on today. For Dinner tonight, Breakfast! I’m having Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links. I love Biscuits and Gravy!

 

It just felt like a Biscuit, Gravy, and Sausage type of day! I love Gravy, I take that after my Dad! He loved Gravy on anything. To make the Gravy I’m using a packet of my favorite Gravy, Pioneer Peppered Gravy Mix. So easy to prepare and absolutely delicious! To prepare it I get a small sauce pan and give it a light spray of Pam non Stick Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. I add a 1 1/2 cups of Cold Water to the pan and heat it on high to a rolling boil. As that is heating up I preheated the oven for the Pillsbury Biscuits and I mixed the Gravy. In a measuring cup I added a 1/2 cup of Cold Water and then added the Gravy Mix to the Water and stirred until it smooth. When the Water was boiling I added the Gravy Mix. Turned down the heat a notch or two and started stirring the Mix and Water. Continued stirring until it started to thicken. Removed it from the heat and continued to stir it for about 30 seconds. I put the lid on the sauce pan and set it aside until I was ready to use it.

Time to bake the Pillsbury Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits! Took a small baking pan and sprayed a light coat of the Pam Cooking Spray on it. Added the Biscuits and popped the pan in the oven. I’m baking them 400ᵒ F for 10 minutes. And as all Pillsbury Biscuits, they came out perfect. Flaky, hot, and ready to serve. Put the Biscuits on a paper towel lined plate and covered them with a towel until ready to use.

 

Finally as the Biscuits were baking I also prepared the Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Another delicious and easily prepared item. I buy these all the time, my favorite. I took a small skillet and sprayed it with the Pam Cooking Spray. Heated it on medium heat. Cooked them for 9 minutes, turning them several times. I love these Sausage Links! I prepared the whole package, Mom is having the Breakfast Dinner with me.

 

To serve everything, I got a bowl and added 2 Biscuits, topped them with the Gravy, and added a couple of the Sausage Links. Then chowed down! Everything is so good. Breakfast for Dinner is fantastic! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage

 

 

To start the morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and and a high of 31 degrees. I had to have my Mom out to Ross, Ohio at the CVS Drugstore. She got her 1st COVID Vaccination Shot. I’m really surprised that she got it, she’s been saying she was not getting one. Her friends talked her into it, they all got theirs this past Tuesday at the same place. I’m glad she did though, she’ll be 93 next month! I’m so lucky to still have around! Back home just did a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight Cast Iron Skillet Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage.

 

I had not made this in quite some time and a Pizza sounded good for tonight! Cast Iron Skillet Pizza, it uses my favorite piece of cookware, the Cast Iron Skillet, and it’s making one of my favorite foods, Pizza. I use Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust when making my own Pizza. For my toppings I’m using; Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Ground Sausage, Sliced Mushrooms, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Original Pizza Sauce. Using a medium size Skillet, I fried the Jennie – O Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage ahead of time. When that was done I drained what little grease there was and put the Sausage in a small bowl, and set aside.

I added it to the Cast Iron Skillet and worked it out by hand, fully covering the bottom of the Skillet. I flipped the Dough Crust one time, that way I had a light coating of the Olive Oil on both sides.

Ready for the oven…

I then added my toppings; Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Ground Sausage, Sliced Mushrooms, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Original Pizza Sauce. Slid that baby into the oven and wait for it to get done! Baked it a total of about 15 minutes.

Today’s Menu: Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links

 

 

To start this morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Dark and gloomy day out there today. 47 degrees, cloudy and rain all day! After my Tea I headed to Meijer before the heavier rains came in around 10:00 this morning. I got to Meijer about 7:10 this morning and by the time I left it was crowded. Mom needed some things for Thanksgiving so I got everything she wanted and a few items for me. A couple of people that work at Meijer told me It’s a good thing I came in now because they are having trouble getting items in. They had no Paper Towel, Toilet Paper, or cleaning products. Here we go again! So Breakfast sure sounded good this rainy day, so Breakfast it is! For Dinner tonight, Breakfast! I’m having Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Sausage Links. I love Biscuits and Gravy!

I love Gravy! To make the Gravy I’m using a packet of my favorite Gravy, Pioneer Peppered Gravy Mix. So easy to prepare and absolutely delicious!

In a measuring cup I added a 1/2 cup of Cold Water and then added the Gravy Mix to the Water and stirred until it smooth. When the Water was boiling I added the Gravy Mix. Turned down the heat a notch or two and started stirring the Mix and Water. Continued stirring until it started to thicken. Removed it from the heat and continued to stir it for about 30 seconds. I put the lid on the sauce pan and set it aside until I was ready to use it.

I’m baking them 400ᵒ F for 10 minutes. And as all Pillsbury Biscuits, they came out perfect. Flaky, hot, and ready to serve. Put the Biscuits on a paper towel lined plate and covered them with a towel until ready to use.

So as the Biscuits were baking I fried my Johnsonville Fresh Turkey Original Breakfast Sausage. I came across a package of these in the freezer. I laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Breakfast Links that Johnsonville has come out with! To prepare them I coated a skillet with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heat the skillet to medium-low. Added the Sausage and cooked for 11 minutes, turning often, until the Sausage was browned. They cook up perfect and are delicious.

 

To serve everything, I got a bowl and added 2 Biscuits, topped them with the Gravy, and added a couple of the Sausage Links. Then chowed down! Everything is so good. Breakfast for Dinner is fantastic! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Mini Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links

 

 

To start my morning I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites that I topped with a few shakes of Ortega Chipotle Taco Sauce and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mom had the cataract taken off her left eye this morning. Mom’s cousin went with her for this one. So after Breakfast I headed off to Kroger for a few items for myself and Mom. Back home I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Later did a load of laundry and cleaned the house. For Dinner tonight its Breakfast! I prepared Biscuits and Gravy w/ Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links.

 

I think I’m going with a Breakfast Menu for the next 2 or 3 Dinners, it just sounds good! Time to mix it up a bit for Dinner. I’ll be using Pioneer Peppered White Gravy Mix, Pillsbury Grands Junior Biscuits, and Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. I also had a glass of Kroger 2% White Milk to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Gravy I’m using a packet of my favorite Gravy, Pioneer Peppered White Gravy Mix. So easy to prepare and absolutely delicious!

Time to bake the Pillsbury Grands Junior Biscuits! Took a small baking pan and sprayed a light coat of the Pam Cooking Spray on it. Added the Biscuits and popped the pan in the oven. I’m baking them 400ᵒ F for 10 minutes. And as all Pillsbury Biscuits, they came out perfect. Flaky, hot, and ready to serve. Put the Biscuits on a paper towel lined plate and covered them with a towel until ready to use.

 

 

 

Finally as the Biscuits were baking I prepared the Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Another delicious and easily prepared item. I buy these all the time, my favorite. I took a small skillet and sprayed it with the Pam Cooking Spray. Heated it on medium heat. Cooked them for 9 minutes, turning them several times. I love these Sausage Links! I prepared the whole package, Mom is having the Breakfast Dinner with me. Her surgery went great, now both eyes are done!

 

 

 

To serve everything, I got a bowl and added 2 Biscuits, topped them with the Gravy, and added a couple of the Sausage Links. Then chowed down! Everything is so good, Mom really enjoyed it she had not had Breakfast or Lunch. Also had a glass of 2% White Milk. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Fingerling Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and French Bread

 
I was awakened about 3:00 this morning by the severe storms that moved through the area. Heavy wind, hail, and some heavy rain. It slowed up and I fell back to sleep and then around 5:00 this morning the next round came Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper Baked Fingerling Potatoes 007through. We had some trees down and flooding in the area, no damage around here though. So after all the excitement I woke up hungry! I prepared a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, 1 Egg Sunny Side Up, 2 slices of toasted Healthy Life Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Green Tea. Not a bad way to start the day! After Breakfast did a load of laundry. After that I ran the vacuum, and dusted (hate dusting). After Lunch I headed over to spend the afternoon with Dad at the rehab center, he’s being released on the 28th of this month. Been 2 months since he’s been home. For dinner tonight it’s Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Fingerling Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 003
I’m using the Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends dropped off to me yesterday on their return from Florida. It’s another one of those beautiful Grouper fillet! To prepare it I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. Then I cut it into smaller pieces. I then seasoned them it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillet in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillet.

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 004
I prepared it in a preheated Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. When the pan was fully heated, on medium heat, I added my Grouper. At this point turn on your Stove Overhead Exhaust Fan on, because it will start smoking from the seasoning. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready! Cast Iron Skillets are perfect to use for any cooking but especially when you Blacken something. The Skillet heats up and holds it heat and the heat evenly distributes across the Skillet, perfect for Blackening Meats. This is one delicious Grouper! The fresh taste of the Grouper, so meaty, along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood! Plus as you can tell as big as this filet was I only had half of it for dinner. The other half for lunch tomorrow!

 
Then I also Baked some Fingerling Potatoes, picked up a bag at our local Kroger. They come in a small bag, Melissa’s Fingerling Potato Medley. It’s a variety of 4-5 different Potatoes including Fingerling Potatoes, which I love using! ToFingerling Potatoes Bag prepare them I started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Love those Potatoes! Perfect side dish for any dinner, especially Fish.

 

 

French Bread
Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Italian Cut Beans, and Baked French Bread

 

Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast 014
Made a Ham, Egg White, Whole Grain English muffin Breakfast Sandwich this morning to start my day off. Outside it’s another rainy, gloomy, cold windy day out. Sure would like to see the sun for an entire day. So since it’s not a good day to be out I used the time inside to give my Hoveround Mobility Chair a good cleaning. Took parts off so I could clean the entire chair. Did some light cleaning after that. For dinner tonight I prepared a Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast w/ Mashed Potatoes, Italian Cut Beans, and Baked French Bread.

 

 

Jennie – O OVEN READY™ Boneless Skinless Turkey Breast 005

 

I used the Jennie – O Oven Ready Skinless Boneless Turkey Breast that Jennie – O had sent me just before Christmas, as a member of their Switch Club. Such an easy way to have a moist and fantastic tasting Turkey, along with little clean-up! Comes in a Jennie O turkey Breast Oven Ready Bag, that you bake at 375 degrees for about 2 to 3 hour until it reads 165 degrees. It also now has a pop up inserted in the breast that pops up when done. The Turkey comes out moist, juicy and delicious, with an excellent flavor! So cooking usually for just myself and my parents, it’s just the right size (2-3 lbs.). Enough leftover for some great Turkey Sandwiches!

 

Fried Walleye w Cut Roma Beans and Baked Roasted Fingerling Pota 003
For one side I made some of my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better. Then for another side dish I heated a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. To prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. Just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I could have Beans every day and never get tired of having them.

 

 

Cheesy Ravioli in Tomato And Cheese Sauce w Baked French Bread 004

 

Finally I baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread, family’s favorite baked bread. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls

Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls 001

Cold day outside here so I heated up the Kitchen and tried a new recipe, Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls from Pillsbury. Found this recipe in a cooking magazine, sounded good so I thought I would give it a try. I had actually tried this recipe last year about this time but I used Jennie – O Ground Turkey Breakfast Sausage. So this time I’m going with original recipe and using Spicy Sausage, I used Bob Evan’s Zesty Hot Pork Sausage. For my other ingredients I used Pillsbury Reduced Calorie Crescent Rolls and Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Both which cut back on calories, fat, and carbs.

 

 

Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls 003
To prepare them, heat oven to 375°F. Then line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix sausage, cheese and rosemary; mix well using your hands or spoon. Unroll crescent dough on work surface; coat each side of dough with 1 tablespoon flour. Using pizza cutter or knife, cut dough into about 1/4-inch pieces. Mix crescent dough pieces into bowl of sausage mixture in small amounts until well blended. Shape the mixture into 42 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place in pan. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.

 

 

Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls 004
You can eat these just as they are or serve them with some French’s Spicy Brown Mustard, which worked well with it. The Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls turned out delicious! They had a really good Spicy flavor, not over powering just right. This will make a perfect Christmas or New Year’s appetizer for your family and friends gatherings! The original recipe and the Pillsbury web link is at the end of the post.
