Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

Dinner Tonight: Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies)

For Breakfast I made a packet of Pioneer White Peppered Gravy, 2 Jennie - O Turkey
Breakfast sausage Links, a Toasted Slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love Breakfast! So after Breakfast it was house cleaning day; dusting, vacuum, and did a load of laundry for Mom. It wasn't quite as cold this morning, 7 degrees with a wind chill of minus 3. They say we have that dreaded 4 letter word moving in tomorrow, S-N-O-W! Knowing this are like I do the grocery stores will be packed all day! Just to mention the word snow sends this are into a panic, it's so funny! They say Friday could be our big snow day though, 5-7 inches if it comes in right. But life will go on somehow in this area (LOL). For dinner tonight I prepared Beans and Smoked Turkey Sausage (Beans and Weenies). Love this dish!

While growing up I would live on Campbell’s Beans and Weenies! So tonight it’s Beans and
Weenies, but I kicked this version up a bit. I used 1 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (sliced into thin bite size pieces), 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon (Fried and Crumbled), 1 can of Bush’s White Chili Beans, 1 can Bush's Vegetarian Reduced Sodium Baked Beans, 1/4 cup of Red Onion (Chopped), 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard, 1 tablespoon Splenda Brown Sugar, Liquid Smoke (Optional and to taste), a couple of shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and 2 cups of Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce (or to taste).

Not only is it a delicious dish but it's a one pot meal. 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 it simmer. Another set it and forget recipe! After I got the Beans started I fried up 1 1/2 Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages. I first sliced them up into bite size pieces then fried them on medium until they started to brown and removed them from the heat and put them in a small bowl and set aside.

Then using the same skillet I fried the Sausage in I fried 3 slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon,
actually I fried 5 slices actually. Always remember when preparing Bacon to always add 2 extra slices. Because you know you’ll grab a couple of slices, it’s called the Bacon Factor or Bacon Math. I fried it up nice and crisp and when done crumbled it up into small pieces and added it to the Beans. Sausage, Bacon, and Beans are such a natural combo, Bacon gives it that wonderful smoky flavor.

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 added the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausages and added it to the Beans. Kept the heat on low until it was time for dinner. A good Hearty Meal tonight. You have the smokiness of the Bacon and Liquid Smoke, the Sweetness and Tang of the BBQ Sauce, the Spices, along with the Smoked Turkey Sausage and Beans. I just love all the flavors, a real comfort food favorite of mine! Another plus is the cleanup, just one dutch Oven to clean. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.
