Today’s Menu: Stuffed Clams w/ Sliced Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, and Baked Crescent Rolls

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared my favorite Breakfast; Hash Browns, Diced Ham, and a Egg. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. It’s above zero to start the day, 40 degrees! For the day its cloudy and a high near 60. They say 60 degrees tomorrow also but we have a chance of getting between 6-10 inches of snow Friday and Saturday. It just depends on how the storm comes in. We usually miss the big amounts of snow through this part of the Ohio Valley, wait and see. After Lunch I got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Did a few things around the house and that was it for my day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Stuffed Clam w/ Sliced Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn and Baked Crescent Rolls.

 

I purchased The Stuffed Clams from the Seafood Department at Kroger. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand) that they carry in the Seafood Case. We have these every so often and love having them! For the Stuffed Clams I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Lined a small baking sheet with foil and placed the Clams on it. I sprinkled some Sea Salt on them and a drizzle of Lemon Juice. When the oven was ready I baked the Clams until heated through, about 25 minutes. Meaty and seasoned just right, with a side of Louisiana Remoulade Sauce. It’s the perfect dip for all Seafood.

 

 

For one side dish I prepared a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of the Del Monte Products, always delicious and they store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them; boiled until heated and seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Parsley Flakes.

 

 

 

 

 

For another side dish I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. It’s frozen Mini Ears of Sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Divine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

Matlaw’s Stuffed Clams

Set Sail for Something Different for Dinner Tonight!
It’s the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner tonight?” Instead of reaching for another steak, pork chop, or that old standby, chicken nuggets for the kids, set sail for something different:
a bounty of delicious options from under the sea.

With families today looking for healthier and more flavorful meal options than ever before, seafood lovers young and old will enjoy discovering new items in the frozen seafood section that are convenient, affordable and tasty. That’s why, Matlaw’s, creator of America’s #1 Seafood Appetizer, has introduced a full line of products that the whole family will love.

From classic New England Style, Bacon and Cheese, Chorizo or Chili Lime Stuffed Clams served in a natural clam shell; to Crispy Original, Barbecue, or Coconut Popcorn Shrimp; and Southwest Tortilla Breaded Cod, Jalapeño Breaded Cod, or Pubstyle Battered Cod, these exciting new flavor combinations are sure to have family members asking for more every night of the week.

For many families the Stuffed Clams have become a favorite. Each natural clamshell is filled with a delectable matlaws breadcrumb stuffing with clams, green and red peppers, and delicate spices, and individually frozen to insure freshness and flavor. They’re great on the grill and so easy to prepare. Instead of turning on the oven and heating up the kitchen, simply wrap in a foil “boat” and place right on the grill on medium heat for 25 minutes. Pair with a crunchy green salad and top with butter and lemon, (or a dash of hot sauce for the truly adventurous), is all it takes to satisfy the family.

With Matlaw’s it couldn’t be easier to serve up a seafood feast at dinner time, lunch time or party time too. Discover even more recipes, tasty food pairing suggestions, menu recommendations, special offers, coupons and more at http://www.Matlaws.com/setsail.com

Today’s Menu: Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions w/ Hash Browns and Bush’s Grillin’ Beans (Smokehouse Tradition Beans)

 

Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions 006
I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Went to Kroger for Mom and got some gas before coming back home. Another cool morning about 34 degrees. At least it quit raining for a while during the day. Rain moved back in later though. If its true that “April showers make May flowers” is true, we are going to be loaded with flowers! Gave Mom a hand on her Spring Cleaning the rest of the afternoon. For dinner tonight I prepared Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions w/ Hash Browns and Bush’s Grillin’ Beans.

 

 

 

Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions

 

I’m using my last package of the Tuscan Seasoned Pork Loin Medallions.I had purchased a package with 24 slices. So I got the bag of 4 medallions out and let them thaw in the fridge oversight.

 

 

 

 
To prepare them I started by preheating the oven on 400 degrees. To prepare them I used a Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heated itTuscan Seasoned Pork Medallions w Cut Italian Beans, Whole Potat 002 on medium heat. I then lightly Salted the Pork with Sea Salt and a sprinkle of McCormick Dried Parsley. Added the Pork to the skillet and cooked it for 2 minutes a side, just started to brown. Then from the stove to the oven, love Cast Iron Skillets! I then baked them to a medium rare, 145 degrees in the center of the medallions using a meat thermometer. Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorites. The Pork was so tender and flavorful. Seasoned just right and very moist. I’ll have to buy another package next visit to Costco I really enjoy these!

 

 

 

Simply Potatoes Hash Browns

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, I always use Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley.

Then for a second side I heated up a can of Bush’s Grillin’ Smokehouse Tradition Beans. First time using these, the beans come in a sweet and smoky sauce. To prepare them just emptied the contents into a sauce pan. Heat to simmer and serve! As all the Bush’s Beans they were fantastic! I like the sauce they are in, as it says sweet and smoky. Another Bush’s product to have in the pantry. I also baked a can of Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

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.

Turkey Sausage and Cheese Crescent Balls 008

Made an Appetizer/Snack for the family today, Sausage Crescent Cheese Balls. Found this recipe idea on a Pillsbury Recipes Email. Love getting these recipe emails everyday found many a recipe from these.

 

 

 

I changed 3 ingredients from the original recipe to cut back on the Calories, Carbs, and Fat. I’m using Jennie – O Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage instead of Pork Sausage, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar instead of regular Cheese, and I used Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls instead of the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. Cutting Calories, Carbs, and Fat where you can all adds up!

 

 

Turkey Sausage and Cheese Crescent Balls 002

I’ll need the following; 1 – lb Jennie – O Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage, 2 – cups Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar, 1 – can (8 oz) Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls, 1/2 – teaspoon dried rosemary leaves (crushed), and 2 – tablespoons all-purpose flour.

Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into about 1/4-inch pieces. Mix crescent dough pieces into bowl of sausage mixture in small amounts until well blended. Then shape mixture the into 42 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place in pan. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. They came out golden brown and delicious! The Turkey Sausage, Cheese, Crescent Rolls, and Rosemary are perfect together! The perfect Party Appetizer or just a Snack for the family, thank you Pillsbury!
