Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

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

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. After Breakfast started a couple of loads of laundry. Did some light house cleaning. Then outside for some yard work. I had everything gone and settled in the easy chair and spent the day watching NFL Football! Anyway 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 later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Light.

 

 

 

 

  • Camera batteries were dead, had to use an older photo. Wrong fries though. Sorry
