Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 

 
For Breakfast I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 014Believe It’s Not Butter. Then I fried up a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and prepared the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast i went up the road to the local Kroger to pick up a few items for Mom and myself. Back home, put everything away and went over to Rehab to see Dad, I was lucky to find this place, they are so nice and Dad is real happy with it! So Monday starts the therapy and building his strength back up. Back home I did some laundry and some light cleaning. For Dinner tonight it’s Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Comfort Food!

 

 

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 001
I’ve been wanting the Sausage and Beans for a while now. So tonight it’s Beans and Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush’s Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).
I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 003Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let it simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages. I first sliced them up into bite size pieces then fried them on medium until they started to brown and removed them from the heat and put them in a small bowl and set aside.

 

 
Then using the same skillet I fried the Sausage in I fried 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, actually I fried 5 slices turkey-bacon-and-muenster-cheese-buffalo-burger-w-baked-fries-002actually. Always remember when preparing Bacon to always add 2 extra slices. Because you know you’ll grab a couple of slices, it’s called the Bacon Factor or Bacon Math. I fried it up nice and crisp and when done crumbled it up into small pieces and added it to the Beans. Sausage, Bacon, and Beans are such a natural combo, Bacon gives it that wonderful smoky flavor.

 

 

 
I love dishes that you can set and let them simmer, to me it seems to give food a much richer and deeper flavor. AfterBeans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 007 a couple of hours I added the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages to the Beans. Kept the heat on low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokiness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans. I just love all the flavors, a real comfort food favorite! Another plus is the cleanup, just one dutch Oven and 1 skillet to clean. Also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread and had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 
For Breakfast it was a bowl of Cheerio’s Cereal along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 014Breakfast I started a load of laundry for Mom and then headed out to the local Kroger for Mom. She just needed a few items so I did the shopping for her. Then on the way back I stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Back home did a little yard work before the heat and humidity set in for the day. Done with all the major chores so just did a few things around the house that needed done. After Lunch headed up to the hospital to see Dad. He turns 95 today! We thought he was going to get to come home today but he had a bad night last night, sick to his stomach and didn’t sleep all night. So he’ll be there till next week.

Today’s Menu: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

 

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 014

For Breakfast I made a packet of Pioneer White Peppered Gravy, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast sausage Links, a Toasted Slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love Breakfast! So after Breakfast it was house cleaning day; dusting, vacuum, and did a load of laundry for Mom. It wasn’t quite as cold this morning, 7 degrees with a wind chill of minus 3. They say we have that dreaded 4 letter word moving in tomorrow, S-N-O-W! Knowing this are like I do the grocery stores will be packed all day! Just to mention the word snow sends this are into a panic, it’s so funny! They say Friday could be our big snow day though, 5-7 inches if it comes in right. But life will go on somehow in this area (LOL). For dinner tonight I prepared Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Love this dish!

 

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 001
While growing up I would live on Campbell’s Beans and Weenies! So tonight it’s Beans and Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush’s Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

 

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 003
Not only is it a delicious dish but it’s a one pot meal. 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 it simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages.

Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies) 007
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 added the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages and added it to the Beans. Kept the heat on low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokiness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans.

Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Baked Harvest Grain Bread.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Baked Harvest Grain Bread.

 

Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 013
Getting sort of chilly around here, it was about 33 degrees with a wind chill of 24 degrees. Cloudy all day but we’ve been lucky none of the snow that some places have been getting. Took Mom and Dad to their Family Doctor, Dad had to have a checkup and they wrote a prescription for a lift chair. He’s been having problems getting out of a chair so this lift chair should help. For dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese w/ Baked Harvest Grain Bread.

 

 

Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 001
Made some Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese to warm the day up a little. I used 2 Cans of Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, Barilla Whole Grain Elbow Pasta (4 servings), Dried Cilantro, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and fresh grated Dutch Gouda Cheese. For some reason, not sure why, it’s getting harder to find Whole Grain Pasta Products around this area. You can find Spaghetti, most of the time, but all other varieties are hard to find anymore.

 

 

Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 010
I prepared the Elbow Pasta in a large sauce pan, according to the package directions. When the Pasta was done I drained the water and put the Pasta in a small Dutch Oven. I then added the Turkey Chili to the Pasta and mixed well. Added a 1/2 cup of the Sargento Cheese and Cilantro, mixed and put the lid on the Dutch Oven. Heated it on medium low until I was ready to serve it. Another tasty comfort food dish! The Pasta came out just right and as always the Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans was delicious. Served it in a bowl and topped it with a sprinkle of The Sargento Cheese and the fresh grated Dutch Gouda. Love using Dutch Gouda, it melts good and gives dishy a creamy taste. I also baked a loaf of Kroger Bakery Harvest Grain Bread, which goes great with Chili, Soups, and Stews. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Barilla Whole Grain ElbowsBarilla Whole Grain Elbow Pasta

Try Barilla’s Whole Grain Elbow pasta. Made with 51% whole wheat, Barilla Whole Grain had 3 times the fiber of regular pasta while still tasting great!
Elbows is named for its twisted tubular shape that can vary in size, and be either smooth or ridged. Pasta elbows originated from Northern and Central Italy, where they are traditionally used in soups. The Barilla version is ridged with an extra twist, giving it a more sophisticated shape that also helps to hold the sauce. With Barilla twisted Elbows, you can take this fun shape beyond the expected in any number of traditional Italian meals, in soups, baked pasta dishes, or tossed with vegetable or cheese sauces.

1. Bring 4-6 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add salt to taste, if desired.
2. Add contents of package to boiling water. Stir gently.
3. Return to a boil. For authentic “al dente” pasta, boil uncovered, stirring occasionally for 7 minutes. For more tender pasta, boil an additional minute.
4. Remove from heat. Drain well and serve as desired.

Whole grain pasta is best paired with tomato or cream sauces. Pesto sauces also go well with whole grain pasta. Meat and game sauces pair well too. Green vegetables in general taste very good with whole grain pasta. Pine nuts, walnuts, chestnuts, pistachios, and dried fruit such as raisins and apples pair very well with this whole grain pasta. Cheese sauces made with Parmigiano, Grana, Asiago, Pecorino, Ricotta, Provolone, or Fontina cheese work well with whole grain pasta in terms of flavor profiles.
