Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Grillin’ 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.

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

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its cloudy and a high of 81 degrees. After Breakfast I went to the Walmart Garden Center, looking for a grill. Then to Kroger and picked up a couple of items and then stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch got the cart out of the shed and finished up some yard work. Anyway 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 Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun and topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I love these Smoked Sausages.

 

 


To go with the Sausage Dog I baked up some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with Morton’s Lite salt and Ground Black Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right.! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served with a side of my favorite Ketchup, Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Thank you to Aggie for passing this hint along………..

Use a potato masher to crumble ground beef or turkey and sausage links for recipes. You can do this as it is cooking. It makes this task quick, easy and evenly crumble. Added hint; Spray your masher with Pam Non Stick Spray for an easy clean up.

Today’s Menu: Blue Grass Brats and Mettwursts w/ Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans

 

 

To start the day off I toasted a couple of Eggos – Nutrigrain Waffles and heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and rain most of the day, high of 52 degrees. This sure beats in the teens and snow! After Breakfast I went to Kroger for Mom for a few items then stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for her. I cleaned the carpets today in my bedroom and in the spare bedroom. Thought I would clean them one last time before we replace them later this year. For Dinner tonight Blue Grass Brats and Mettwursts w/ Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans.

 

 

 

 

For the Sausages I used a package of Blue Grass Brats and Mettwursts. There’s 6 Sausages that come in the package, 3 Brats and 3 Mettwursts. To prepare them; Just add the Brats and Metts to a large skillet and add water, until they are half way covered. Bring them to a brisk boil but then immediately turn down the heat to a very low boil, more of a simmer than an active boil. Cover and Simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, then finish off in a pan with just the Brats and a little Extra Light Olive Oil to get a nice crispy finish. Love this method, if you can’t grill them. Delicious, plump, and they cook up great! I had 1 Brat and 1 Mett. Served them on Aunt Millie’s Reduced Fat Whole Grain Hot Dog Bun topped with French’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

 

 

 

 


Then for a side I prepared some Bush’s Grillin’ Beans Bourbon and Brown Sugar. I had these before when having Brats or Metts, they go perfect! I just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated them until they started to simmer, and serve. Love these Bush’s Beans. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Classic Mac and Cheese

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 20 degrees this morning with frost. 38 degrees and mostly cloudy for the day. I had to be at the Doctor’s Office at 8:30 this morning. Time for my 6 month exam at my Oncologist. He gave a Physical check along with blood work. Everything looked to be normal! It seems a lifetime ago since I had Melanoma Cancer but I guess it will always be in the back of mind the fight I had with it. I’ve come a long way, Caner Free since June or July of 2004! I used to have scans and x-rays one a year but I’ve been cleared to just 2 Physicals a year and 1 visit a year to the Dermatologist. But I’ll always stay alert to any skin changes. Anyway 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.
