Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Diced Ham, Hash Browns, and Off the Block Cheddar Cheese Omelet. I used Kroger Diced Ham, Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Sargento Off the Block Cheddar Cheese, Ortega Smokey Chipotle taco Sauce, and 2 Eggs to make this very delicious Omelet! I topped the Omelet with some more of the Cheddar and the Taco Sauce. Also had that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Great start to rainy day!

 

 

 

 

Rain, windy, and 63 degrees out today. They say we could end up with an inch or more of rain. And they way it’s been coming down we’ll get that if not more. So nothing going on outside in this weather. I did give the outdoor grill a good cleaning. Scrubbed the grates and cleaned down into the base of grill. Then just kicked back and watched College Football for the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I used the always delicious Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet when it was heated up and covered with a lid. I turned the Sausage every few minutes to get an even char on them, cooked about 11 minutes total. As always they came out just bursting with flavor and flat-out delicious! I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I love these Smoked Sausages.

 

I also prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert,Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Tongs only…………

When smoking or grilling sausages, always use tongs or a spatula. Never a fork. Piercing allows the juices to bleed out.
