Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 62 degrees and cloudy out today, with rain showers moving in late afternoon. I went out to get the morning papers and it was your typical Autumn Morning out there. The East skies were orange, yellow, and blue then to the West and North the skies were grey and black. Bit of breeze that was rustling the leaves, and there is a ton of leaves on the ground. Fall has set in here in Ohio! After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and then later I cleaned the house, dusted and vacuum. Done for the day. For Dinner tonight I got the last 2 containers of the leftover 3 Bean Turkey Chili out of the freezer and heated that up. So it’s 3 Bean Turkey Chili w/ Johnny Cakes. I’ve left a previous post for the ingredients and directions. I’ll be making a new Batch soon! I also made some Johnny Cakes to go with the Chili Take care all!

 

I had not made my Chili in a while, and it was long over due! To make my Chili I’m using Jennie -O Lean Ground Turkey, 2 – 1lb. packages. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Black Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans ( Kidney Beans), 1 Can (16 oz.) Bush’s Chili Beans (Great Northern Beans) drained and rinsed, Then I mix in 1 Red Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Seeded and Chopped), and 3 Cloves Minced Garlic. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste (2 cans),4 Cloves Minced Garlic, 2 tsp Ground Anchio Chile Pepper, 2 tsp Ground Paprika, 1 Tbs. Ground Chile Seasoning, 2 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon, 1 tbsp of Cilantro Leaves and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). What’s good about this recipe you can use your own favorite Spices and make your own tweaks to it.

 

First thing I do is get the Crock Pot out and put in a Glad Crock Pot Liner. The Liners are incredible, just line your Crock Pot with one and spray it with Pam Cooking Spray. Now you are set to go. It makes for one easy clean up, just remove it when done and give the inside of your Crock Pot a quick wipe down and your clean up is done! On with the recipe.

 

I prepared the Beans and Ground Turkey last night. To prepare the Turkey, I started by browning the Jennie -O Ground Turkey. Using a large skillet sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Preheat the skillet on medium heat. When heated I add the Ground Turkey and all the Seasonings and Tomato Paste, stirring often. When the Turkey has browned I put it in a large plastic container and on into the fridge after it had cooled a bit. Next I opened all 3 cans of Bush Beans into a large bowl and stirred until mixed. Stored them in a bowl and in the fridge also.

 

Then this morning I added everything to the Crock Pot. I also added a 1/2 cup of Water, stirred twice, and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. The full recipe and list of ingredients is at the end of the post. Then sit back and enjoy the aroma, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Grated Smoked Gouda Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce.

 

I just love the aroma of the simmering Chili, that usually starts after an hour or so of simmering! I love a thick Chili and this one works! The Jennie – O Ground Turkey combined with all those Beans and Spices is a perfect match. Served it topped with some Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a couple of shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I’ll be using the Leftover Chili in a couple of different ways for the couple of days, can’t wait! Chili is even better after sitting in the fridge for a day!

 

 

To prepare Johnny Cakes all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your 3 Bean Turkey Chili w Johnny Cakes 004ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. To serve I placed mine on a plate and topped it with my 3 Bean Chili and Shredded Cheese. And now it’s Comfort Food Heaven! Chili and Cornbread are meant to be together! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Turkey Sandwich w/ Baked Shoestring Fries

 

 

Grilled Ham and Turkey Sandwich 013
I started the day off by preparing a Breakfast Burrito! To make it I’ll need 1 medium size Egg, Jennie – O Turkey Ground Breakfast Sausage, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Frank’s Hot Sauce, sliced Jalapeno Pepper, and Old El Paso Flour Soft Tortilla. Not a bad way to start my day! It was a full house cleaning day, dusted and vacuumed. Sunny and 82 degrees out, and low humidity! Got the cart out for a while. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Turkey Sandwich w/ Baked Shoestring Fries.

 

 

Grilled Ham and Turkey Sandwich 002

While at Kroger the other day I loaded up on some Boar’s Head Deli items. I bought some Boar’s Head Beef Salami, Boar’s Head Maple Glazed Honey Coat Cured Turkey Breast, Boar’s Head Branded Deluxe Ham, and Boar’s Head Smoked Gouda Cheese. So to make my Sandwich I’ll be using the Turkey, Ham, and Gouda Cheese. I’ll also need; Hellmann’s Light Mayonnaise, Boston Bib Lettuce, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

 

Grilled Ham and Turkey Sandwich 005
This will be an easy clean up job because I’ll only be using my Flat Top Griddle Pan. I got the Griddle out and sprayed a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray. Preheated it on medium heat. When heated I grabbed some of the Turkey and Ham and laid the pile of Meat on the Griddle. I let it cook for about 4 minutes and flipped it over with the spatula. After I flipped it,using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, I buttered 2 slices of the Healthy Life Bread (buttering just one side of the Bread. I then added 1 slice of the Bread on to the Griddle, buttered side down.

 

 

Grilled Ham and Turkey Sandwich 007

 

After about a minute or so I added the Turkey and Ham on to the Bread. I then added the Gouda Cheese and the other slice of Bread that I spread with the Hellmann’s Mayo, buttered side facing up. I then flipped the Sandwich and grilled that side for 3 minutes. And done! Love these Boar’s Head Meats and Cheese, always fresh and delicious.

 

 

 

 

Grilled Cheese and Baked Fries 003

 
Then to go with the Grilled Sandwich I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 18 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fries! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

Those who crave sweet will love our Maple Glazed Honey Coat Turkey Breast. This tender, extra lean turkey breast gets its sweet flavor from 100% pure maple syrup and golden honey. Low fat and rich in protein, this turkey is something sweet you can feel good about eating.

 
Branded Deluxe Ham
Water added.
It all started with Branded Deluxe Ham. Slow cooked for a tender taste, this was our very first product and continues to be a favorite today.

 
Smoked Gouda, Pasteurized Process Gouda and Cheddar CheeseBranded Deluxe Ham
A unique blend of buttery Gouda and mild cheddar that is naturally smoked with hickory and hardwoods, for a cheese with subtle smoky notes and a rich, creamy flavor. Smoked Gouda lends depth to ordinary burgers and pairs with Boar’s Head Bacon to make a truly spectacular mashed potato side dish.
