Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a 1/2 Cake Donut and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I took Mom over to the Gordon Food Service Store. They had some good buys going on. They had Prime Rib Roast on sale that we got. Mom wants to have it for New Years. Stopped and picked up Breakfast for her at Wendy’s. Back home I relaxed for a while, we had to be at a local Walgreens at 4:00. Me and Mom both got our Virus Booster Shot. Nothing else going on. For Dinner tonight I up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. I never let the Leftovers of Gumbo go to waste! Love that Gumbo! I’ve left the post from last night up for description and instructions. Take care and stay safe all!

 

Gumbo is always one of my favorite meals, the Rice, Spices, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage makes the perfect Gumbo! Plus the leftovers are just as good if not better! To make it I used a box of Zatarain’s Gumbo Dinner Mix for the Gumbo base, 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages (sliced into bite size slices), a bag of Meijer Brand Jumbo Shrimp and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I precooked the Sausage and Shrimp, according to the package instructions, before adding it to the Gumbo.

 

It’s very easy to prepare, it takes about 25-30 minutes. To start; I just boil the stock that’s in the packet, add the sliced Turkey Sausage to the stock along with a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and continued to cook for 10-15 minutes. Then I added the Shrimp and simmered for another 2-3 minutes. And the Gumbo is ready to serve and It turns out fantastic! Nice flavor, incredible tasting stock, meaty Shrimp and Sausage, and plenty of Rice, makes one easily prepared hearty and delicious dish. Plus enough leftovers for a couple of lunches too, I took a small bowl over to my neighbor also, she always enjoys that. Then for Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple.

 

Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix
Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix is a flavorful foundation of long grain rice in a rich, seasoned roux with red and green bell peppers. Just add one pound of cooked chicken, smoked sausage or seafood, cut into bite size pieces and dinner is ready in just 30 minutes.
Gumbo can be prepared with your choice of 1 lb. of cooked chicken, smoked sausage or seafood, cut into bite-size pieces.

STOVE TOP DIRECTIONS

2. For Chicken or Sausage Gumbo: Stir in chicken or sausage. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 25 minutes or until rice is tender.

Healthy Sausage Recipes
Find healthy, delicious sausage recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Louisiana Gumbo
Chock-full of shrimp, chicken, sausage, okra and tomatoes, this flavorful stew is a staple in Louisiana. Make it a meal and serve with Real Cornbread (see associated recipe)……

Sheet-Pan Sausage and Peppers
This easy one-dish meal is bound to become a regular in your dinner rotation–it’s super simple and comes together quickly. Be sure to preheat your sheet pan–adding vegetables to a hot pan helps start the charring and caramelization, without steaming your veggies. And remember, you are only heating up your sausage, not cooking it from raw in this recipe, but if you substitute with fresh sausage (which you can), you’ll need to cook the sausage longer……

Cast-Iron Skillet Pizza with Sausage and Kale
A piping-hot cast-iron skillet turns pizza dough into a puffy, crisp-bottomed crust (similar to focaccia). If you have children, let them help make this easy pizza recipe: While you cook the sausage, have the kids tear up the kale–no knife required!

Southwestern Vegetable and Chicken Soup
Who wouldn’t want to eat their vegetables when they’re tucked into a fragrant broth with bits of tasty chicken and spiked with a shot of fresh lime and cilantro? This healthy chicken vegetable soup seems even richer with the smoky flavor from roasted poblano peppers and garlic. Serve this healthy chicken soup recipe with tortilla chips…………..

Butternut Squash Soup with Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Layering apple slices into grilled cheese sandwiches adds a little crunch to a favorite soup dipper. And creamy butternut squash soup with ginger, cumin and turmeric is a nice change of pace from grilled cheese’s usual tomato soup partner. Serve the duo for a comforting and easy weeknight dinner for the family. The soup keeps well in the fridge, so save leftovers for lunch or dinner later in the week……………

Loaded Baked Potato Soup
This healthy loaded baked potato soup recipe is inspired by the comforting flavor of fully loaded baked potatoes with bacon, Cheddar, sour cream and chives. To make a vegetarian version of this potato soup, omit the bacon and use “no-chicken” broth. Serve it with a green salad and crusty bread to clean up the bowl………..
