Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) w/ Cheddar Corn Bread Muffins

 

 

 

Beans and Smoke Turk  Cheddar Muffins 004

Downright miserable out again, hot and humid. Late afternoon/evening is our community Picnic and Swim Party, a bit too humid for me to go though. For dinner tonight a classic, (Beans and Weenies) Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage w/ Cheddar Corn Bread Muffins.

 

 

 

 

 
Growing up I always loved those little cans of Campbell’s Beans and Weenies, that and Spaghetti-O’s! Well I wanted some Beans and Weenies but I jazzed it up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into bite size pieces), a handful of Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon Bits, 1 can of Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 can of Bush’s Reduced Sodium Black Beans (drained and rinsed), 1/4 of a medium-sized Red Onion (Chopped), 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 tablespoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and a 3/4 cup of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

 

 

 
To prepare everything, it can’t be much easier. I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! You could make this in a crock pot on low and let it go all day or by using a medium size sauce pan and get done even quicker. I love dishes that you can set low and let them simmer. After a couple of hours I sliced up one of the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and added it to the Beans. I then increased the heat to medium for about another hour and then reduced it back down to medium low until it was time for dinner.

Then to go with my “Beans and Weenies” I baked some Cheddar Corn Bread Muffins. First time I made these and they are delicious! The recipe comes from the Taste of Home website. I lightened the recipe up by using 2% Milk, Sargento reduced Fat Shredded Cheddar Cheese, and Fat Free Greek Yogurt. The original recipe also had it as bread that you cut into squares but I baked as Muffins instead. Fantastic side to the “Beans and Weenies”! I left the full recipe along with a link to the original recipe at the end of the post. A good Hearty Meal tonight. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
