Weather wise more of the same, hot, hazy, and humid. When it's like this i don't have much on an appetite. Which leads to today, nothing sounded good. Mondays are the day if you have any leftovers in the fridge, it's either use it or lose it! Garbage goes out in the morning so we usually clean the fridge of any leftovers. So for my dinner tonight it was Leftover Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies).
I had a nice size helping of the Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage leftover and it was too good to go to waste so I heated that up for my dinner tonight. In case you missed it here's how it's prepared. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into bite size pieces), a handful of Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon Bits, 1 can of Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans, 1 can of Bush’s Reduced Sodium Black Beans (drained and rinsed), 1/4 of a medium-sized Red Onion (Chopped), 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 tablespoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and a 3/4 cup of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).
To prepare everything, it can’t be much easier. I used a small size Dutch Oven that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. Added all the ingredients except for the Turkey Smoked Sausage to the Dutch Oven, and stirred until well mixed. I turned the stove on medium low, covered the pot and just let simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! You could make this in a crock pot on low and let it go all day or by using a medium size sauce pan and get done even quicker. I love dishes that you can set low and let them simmer. After a couple of hours I sliced up one of the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and added it to the Beans. I then increased the heat to medium for about another hour and then reduced it back down to medium low until it was time for dinner. So to reheat this I just put into a small sauce pan and set it on medium low until it was heated through. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. Then for dessert later a Weight Watchers Vanilla Bean & Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich.
