Grilling Sausages……………

Use tongs to turn your sausage; not a fork. You don’t want to poke the casing and let out all the juices. Grill low and slow; fast and hot will cause the juices in the sausage to boil, making the casing burst open, resulting in a burnt outside and a raw inside.

Low to medium heat for sausages………………..

Most people cook brats and sausages way too hot. Those casings are really thin and rupture at anything over medium heat. Ruptured casings means a lot of flavor lost. Indirect grilling is a safe way to cook raw meat sausages. You don’t want your grill too hot. When you grill sausages, be sure to turn them regularly for even heating and to avoid bursting on the side.

Healthy Stew Recipes
Find healthy, delicious stew recipes including beef, chicken and fish stew. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Vegetarian Gumbo
This flavorful vegan dinner is a veggie version of the Louisiana classic. It’s chock-full of butternut squash, tomatoes, poblano peppers and okra, to name just a few. This vegetarian gumbo is a quick dinner packed with flavor and spice that’s done in only 30 minutes. To make it a meal, serve it with cornbread drizzled with olive oil…………………………

Slow-Cooker Spicy Barbecue Pork Stew
Eat this dish along with cornbread on a cold day. This slow-cooker pork stew is filling, and the heat from the spicy barbecue sauce and vinegar from the hot peppers will warm you. Reduce the amount of barbecue sauce or use a sweet variety if you can’t handle the heat………………………….

Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Apricots and Olives
This healthy chicken stew is full of warming, spicy flavor thanks to ras el hanout, an aromatic Moroccan spice blend. You can find it in well-stocked grocery stores–or substitute 1/2 tsp. each ground cumin and ginger and 1/4 tsp. each ground cinnamon, coriander and allspice…………………………..

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

 

 

To start this Monday Morning off I toasted a Thomas English Muffin, Scrambled 1 Egg, fried up 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 56 degrees and sunny out there today. Wow this some end of the year weather we are having. They are saying it will be in the low 60’s for Christmas day and the day after! I have a feeling we’ll pay dearly for this nice weather later on! Anyway I went to Menard’s after Breakfast. Stopped by Kroger to pick up a couple of items for Mom and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for her. Just did a few things around the house and later got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used the 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 Healthy Life 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.

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.

Tongs only…………

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