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! 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 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 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.

A way to decrease the amount of fat and calories in your recipes is to use fat-free milk or 1% milk instead of whole or reduced-fat (2%) milk. For extra richness, try fat-free half-and-half or evaporated skim milk.
