Cincinatti Style Smoky Chili

It’s a bit nippy out so dinner tonight really hit the spot! Smoky Chili done Cincinnati style. It makes a great freezer meal, so I always make a ton of it and store it for those days where I don’t have time to cook. 1 ½ lbs Ground Beef 1 lb Italian Sausage 1 teaspoonContinue reading “Cincinatti Style Smoky Chili”

Sausage & Pepper Bake

I think Sunday’s may be my “clean out the fridge” day. Sausage and Peppers…ish. I had some zucchini, cherry tomatoes and other odds and ends that needed using up, so in they went! I also made a light salad to go with it.   1 lb Italian Sausage Links 2 cup Bell Pepper; sliced 2Continue reading “Sausage & Pepper Bake”

Italian Venison Sausage Soup

Still sticking with lighter dishes to lose a few pounds, so carbs are at a minimum. I love cooking with game meat. Venison especially is really lean and delicious. It wasn’t gamey and went perfectly in this soup. Plus, it comes together so quick that it makes a great weeknight dinner. It’s packed with flavorContinue reading “Italian Venison Sausage Soup”

Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

One of my favorite dishes growing up was Kielbasa and Sauerkraut. I add half a teaspoon of honey to cut through some of the bitterness and the caramelized onions help with that too. Fermented food is so good for you and I used turkey kielbasa, which has half the calories of beef or pork. ItContinue reading “Kielbasa and Sauerkraut”

Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

I was all set to make my BBQ Bacon Burgers last night, but I remembered last minute that it was my niece’s 12th birthday. Time to script the flip! We did Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash instead because…reasons. So the burgers are dinner tomorrow and I promise to post the hamburger bun recipe. Squash: 2Continue reading “Pesto Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash”

Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup

Day 26 of my Pantry Challenge. ❤️  I told myself to only make 4 servings. But if I taste something and it needs another flavor I toss it in. Next thing I know, the soup’s doubled. Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup anyone?! I didn’t have any beef broth, so I used the stock from theContinue reading “Hamburger Sausage & Veggie Soup”

Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole

Day 24 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge I had a Scatter Brain Jane moment yesterday and totally spaced pulling the Pork Half Loin out of my freezer. Yay! (sarcasm heavily implied) Sooo, I quickly thawed some chicken sausages and snagged a box of dehydrated Cheesy Hash Browns from my pantry, both of which I gotContinue reading “Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole”

Sausage Egg & Bacon Breakfast Melts

So much cheesy goodness! Sausage Egg and Bacon Breakfast Melts, one for dinner tonight and the other for breakfast tomorrow. Honestly, I could only finish half of the sandwich. They were 5” tall before I squished them with another pan! I also made some Cheesy Pepper Hash Browns to go with it. 4 thick slicesContinue reading “Sausage Egg & Bacon Breakfast Melts”

Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Pizza

So, this is now a thing! I love it when a random recipe pops into my head. Huevos Rancheros…Pizza. I’ve made Beef Taco Pizzas before and Chicken Fajita Pizzas before, but this is a new one. It turned out brilliantly! 1 Flatbread Pizza Crust 10 oz. Chorizo Sausage 10 oz. Breakfast Sausage ⅓ cup RedContinue reading “Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Pizza”

Copycat Sausage Bacon and Egg McGriddles

I was craving a McGriddle minus the $4.50 price tag. 80¢ is much more my tune! These little bad boys freeze really well, so I made a dozen. Pancakes: 1 ½ cups Flour 2 teaspoons Baking Powder 1 teaspoon Salt 2 teaspoon Sugar 1 ¼ cup whole Milk 1 large Egg 4 Tablespoons Butter 2Continue reading “Copycat Sausage Bacon and Egg McGriddles”
