Today’s Menu: Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

To start our morning off I baked a small roll of Pillsbury Buttery Biscuits, fried up some Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Patties, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I love these as a Breakfast Sandwich, the Patties are the perfect size for Biscuits. Mostly Sunny and 70 degrees out today! I had to have Mom at the Doctors to see if they were able to rid of the Basal Skin Cancer. Her face looks good and all the scars have healed. Well they w3ere real pleased with Mom and they said it looks as though all of it was removed. They are watching one spot on the side of her face. We go back in 2 months just to be sure. I’ll have to cover my Pepper and Tomato Plants for overnight. The low will be 30 degrees or colder. For Dinner tonight I heated up the Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo. As always I never let Leftover Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo go to waste. I just put it all in a sauce pan and reheat it on low heat. For Dessert later I had a Dole Sliced Peaches Cup. I left the original post from the other night below for ingredients and directions. 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.

 

 

 

Zatarain’s Gumbo Mix

Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo

 

For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 58 degrees, windy and sunny out today. It was a rough night around the area last night. South of us they had multiple tornados and heavy rain. We had thunderstorms, high wind and heavy rain. No damage in our area though. After my Tea it was outside and picked up trash, limbs and leaves around the yard. Spent most of the day outside, I also helped out a couple of neighbors cleaning their yard. For my Dinner tonight I prepared a personal favorite, Shrimp and Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo.

 

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!

Today’s Menu: Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas English Muffin and fried up a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty. This makes the perfect Breakfast Sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 70 degrees and mostly sunny out today. I got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work. I also got out the chairs and table for the outdoor deck. Washed them down before putting them out. I also got my Garden Boxes out, I use these to grow my small garden. I filled them up 1/2 way with dirt and peat moss. I wanted to get the dirt in them to settle in the boxes before I get plants for them. I love warm weather! Dinner tonight I prepared Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

I had not made this in a while, long overdue! For the Red Beans and Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice Mix. For the Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey and for the Garlic Loaf I used . Perfect Bread. To prepare it I’ll need; the box of the Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice Mix, 3 cups Water, Extra Light Olive Oil, and the Sausage. Mixed 3 cups of water, Rice Mix and 2 tbsp. of Light Olive Oil in 2-quart saucepan until it was well blended. Brought to a boil. Then reduced the heat to low and covered.

 

I got another skillet out as the Rice was cooking, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Sliced the Sausage into bite size slices and added them to the heated skillet until heated through. Removed them from the heat and set aside until needed.

 

 

Simmered the Rice for 25 minutes, until the tender. Stirred occasionally to prevent the Rice and Beans from sticking. With 4 minutes of cooking time left I added the Smoked Turkey Sausage. When done I removed the skillet from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. And done ready to serve! This makes one fantastic Meal! The Red Beans and Rice is Seasoned perfect. It made plenty of both the Red Beans and the Rice. And the Sausage works perfect with it. One Delicious and Hearty Dish!

 

Then I also baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Loaf Bread.! I loved this hearty dish tonight, plenty leftover for a couple of lunches! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

One of America’s Favorites – Boudin

February 21, 2022 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Boudin noir, before cooking.

The term boudin in the Acadiana cultural region of Louisiana is commonly understood to refer only to boudin blanc and not to other variants. Boudin blanc is the staple boudin of this region and is the one most widely consumed, and is just referred to as boudin. Also popular is seafood boudin consisting of crawfish or crab, shrimp, and rice. Most of Louisiana’s Cajuns do not consider boudin a sausage.

Cajun boudin is available most readily in southern Louisiana, particularly in the Scott (considered to be the Boudin Capital of the World), New Iberia, and Lafayette areas, though it may be found nearly anywhere in “Cajun Country.” Boudin can even be found in areas outside of this, including eastern Texas. There are numerous meat markets and Cajun stores devoted to the specialty, though boudin is also sold from many convenience and grocery stores in other towns and areas along Interstate 10 (i.e., Lake Charles area). Since boudin freezes well, it can be shipped anywhere outside the region. Boudin is one of the stars of Cajun cuisine (e.g., jambalaya, gumbo, étouffée, and dirty rice) and has fanatic devotees that travel across Louisiana comparing the numerous hand made varieties. From the Lake Charles to New Orleans areas, boudin’s taste and flavors can vary. Some Such as Foreman’s Boudin Kitchen use no liver, and other such as Richard’s Cajun Kitchen use liver.

A sliced French boudin noir

Boudin Noir is available in Illinois in the Iroquois County towns of Papineau and Beaverville. The dish is the featured cuisine at the annual Beaverville Founder’s Day, held the second weekend of September. People travel from hundreds of miles to partake of the boudin.

Types
*Boudin ball: A Cajun variation on boudin blanc. Instead of the filling being stuffed into pork casings, it is rolled into a ball, battered, and deep-fried.
* Boudin blanc: Originally, a white sausage made of pork without the blood. Variants include:
* French/Belgian boudin blanc, with milk. Generally sautéed or grilled.
* Cajun boudin blanc, made from a pork and rice mixture (much like dirty rice) in pork casings. Often includes pork liver and heart. Generally simmered or braised, although it may also be grilled.
* Boudin blanc de Rethel (pronounced [bu.dɛ̃ blɑ̃ də ʁə.tɛl]): a traditional French boudin, which may only contain pork meat, fresh whole eggs and milk, and cannot contain any breadcrumbs or flours/starches. It is protected under EU law with a Protected geographical indication status.
* Boudin noir: A dark-hued blood sausage, containing pork, pig blood, and other ingredients. Variants of the boudin noir occur in French, Belgian, Cajun and Catalan cuisine. The Catalan version of the boudin noir is called botifarra negra. In the French Caribbean, it is known as boudin Créole. In Britain a similar sausage is called “black pudding”, the word “pudding” being an anglicized pronunciation of boudin, and probably introduced after the Norman Conquest.

Cajun-style smoked boudin blanc

* Boudin rouge: In Louisiana cuisine, a sausage similar to boudin blanc, but with pork blood added to it. This originated from the French boudin noir.
* Boudin vert: A green sausage made of pork meat and cabbage and kale. Popular in the Belgian province of Walloon Brabant.
* Boudin valdôtain: with beetroot, spices, wine and beef or pork blood, in the French-speaking Aosta Valley of Italy;
* Brown-rice boudin: Brown-rice boudin is a less common variation made from brown rice with taste similar to traditional pork boudin.
* Crawfish boudin: Popular in Cajun cuisine, crawfish boudin is made with the meat of crawfish tails added to rice. It is often served with cracklins (fried pig skins) and saltine crackers, hot sauce, and ice-cold beer.
* Gator boudin: Made from alligator, gator boudin can be found sporadically in Louisiana and the Mississippi gulf coast.
*Shrimp boudin: Similar to crawfish boudin, shrimp boudin is made by adding the shrimp to rice.
