Friday: Chicken/Spinach/Feta Sausage Sandwiches with Hush Puppies and Green Beans
Fridays we let the health level dip a bit, often it's a night for pizza or burgers or something, and it's the only night we can watch a movie or play video games during dinner, pizza party night, if you will. This Friday, we got home late from Disc Golf, so we threw a little something together and still ate at the table.
Simply pan grilled the sausages until cooked through, added onions to the pan to caramelize while the sausages cooked. Piled the onions high on bakery white bread, topped with dijon mustard.
The hush puppies were our Friday treat. Jiffy cornbread mix made thicker than usual, added canned corn, diced fresh jalapenos and tiny cubes of cheddar. Cooked them in the deep fryer.
Taylor made the green beans. Steamed them halfway to retain vitamins, then sauteed in a pan with olive oil to finish. A dash of kosher salt was all they needed.
Cost: $7 total, and we had 2 sausages left over to add to pasta sauce for tomorrow.
Time: 25 minutes total.
