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

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees and mostly sunny outside today. Not a lot today. I did get the cart out and raked the side and backyards. We already have a few trees where the leaves are falling. Not much else going on. Kicked back and got caught up on a couple of movies I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

 

I used the always delicious Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, one of my favorites. 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 Live Carb Smart 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 – Popcorn and a Coke Zero to drink.
