Cajun Chicken and Sausage

I’m doing the Transformation Challenge at Orange Theory, so currently really pushing myself to eat healthy. I’m tracking what I eat and trying to make good choices.  First week down and I did pretty good.  The key is all about being prepared. This week, I was prepared for lunch with this delicious meal!

Ingredients:

  • 1 container (28 spears ea.), Asparagus Spears
  • 1 container (16 oz ea.), Smoked Sausage
  • 1 tablespoon, Oil – Olive
  • 24 oz, Chicken
  • 2 squash, Cooked
  • 2 tsp, Cajun Seasoning

I used a wok, since it holds the most food of all my pans.  I put a little olive oil, then threw in the squash and zucchini.

Then I threw in the asparagus and sprinkled the cajun seasoning all over it.

Then I added the (precooked frozen) chicken and Ekrich Sausage. 

This is SOOO delicious!!! Definitely going to be a staple for my meal prep.

Eggs on the Go!

I’m constantly looking for recipes for my low carb diet.  I was really excited when I found this idea that is easy to make AND a great time-saver!!

You can make about a week’s worth of eggs at one time using this recipe. I’m eating these for my mid-morning snack, but you can also eat it for breakfast or at some other time.

I worry about leftovers going bad, so I didn’t make all twelve eggs, but I think these should last about a week.  Although, if it smells bad, don’t eat it!! I figure it will be about three days before they’re all eaten.

 

Ingredients:
Eggs
Pre-cooked sausage
Cheese
Jalapenos

**You can add other ingredients that you like, such as spinach, mushrooms, onions, etc.  These are the things I like!

Directions:
Spray pam on a muffin pan.  Add egg, sausage, cheese and jalapeños.  Put in oven at 350 for about 15 minutes.  Pull out of the oven and put them in your belly or in a tupperware for future meals on the go!

Jalapeño Sausage Balls

This is a year of creating new Christmas traditions!! My new German Shepherd puppy, Kaizer, finally has all of his shots and is able to go to places that other dogs go.  First stop on Christmas morning was to take him to the Katy Trail for a walk.  While we were out, we noticed that the Katy Trail Ice House had the fire pits going, so after our walk, we went and warmed up by the fire.  I’m not sure if they were open on Christmas day, but they were nice enough to come build a fire and leave water for all the people who exercise on the trail.  Kaiser absolutely loved being out there and greeting all the other dogs.  We have hereby renamed the Katy Trail to the Kaizer Trail and the Katy Trail Ice House is now the Kaizer Trail Ice House.

After the walk on the Katy Trail, we went home and made Jalapeño Sausage Balls.  They were so delicious and will be how we start off all of our future Christmas mornings!! They are SO easy to make and they are SOOOOO good!! I wasn’t sure I’d like the jalapeño in them, so I made half with peppers and half without. From now on I will make them ALL with the jalapeños!!

2 Cups of Bisquick
1 Cup of Cheese
1 lb of browned sausage (I prefer the Hot)
Diced Jalapeños to taste

Combined the ingredients until all the Bisquick is mixed together and there is no dry flour. Roll the mixture in to small balls and put on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 20 – 25 minutes until brown.

Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole

I love getting to cook Sunday breakfasts for my family, but I want to find a way to mix it up a little. I ordered a waffle maker from Amazon.com, but it didn’t show up in time for me to make waffles. I looked online for another breakfast casserole and I found one that was very similar to the last one I made, but just different enough to make it something new. Luckily, I have 3 weeks until the next time I have to cook for everyone. I’m pretty sure my waffle maker will be here by then!!

Ingredients

12 eggs
1 cup of cheese (or more if you like a lot of cheese like I do)
1 tube of sausage
1 tube of crescent rolls
Salt
Pepper

Sunday Breakfast

Now that I’m back in Dallas, I have to take my turn making breakfast for everyone on Sundays.  I am getting much better at cooking and almost had my breakfast timed out perfectly.  Had it not been for my breakfast casserole taking longer than it was supposed to, I would have had breakfast on the table for everyone right when they got here.  It ended up taking a lot longer than the recipe said it would. It might be because I doubled the recipe I found at The Real Housewife blog.  It really didn’t matter though.  It all tasted great!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pound Sausage
  • 8 Eggs
  • 2 Cups Bisquick
  • 2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 Cups Milk

Sausage Waffles

One of the gifts from the cookie exchange was the movie Elf with a bottle of syrup.  The movie got stolen from me, but I got stuck with the syrup.  Since I had syrup, I had to make some waffles.  I really liked the idea of making sausage waffles, so I thought I would give it a try and make the people at work try it with me.  I think everyone that tried this is now a fan of sausage waffles!

Ingredients:
Waffle mix…I used bisquick and their recipe
Ground sausage
Syrup
Butter

Pigs in a Blanket

I know that everyone knows how to make pigs in a blanket, but just in case you don’t, you need to!  These tiny kolaches have to be the best weekend breakfast food ever. They are also so easy to make that I highly recommend them!!

Ingredients:

Little smokey sausage (I got the ones that had cheese in them)
Can of biscuits

Pop the can of biscuits and cut the biscuits in half.  Wrap a half biscuit around each smokey.  Bake at 400 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes.  That’s it!! Eat them up!!  You can even put them in a baggie, put them in the fridge, and eat the left overs throughout the week!
