Smoked Sausage Skillet

I'm all about getting a healthy dinner on the table, and in a quick manner! I have one child who isn't picky at all, and one that is fairly picky...but if you give her anything with noodles, she's all over it! This dinner was perfect! Protein, veggies, and noodles!

  • 1 pound Turkey Kielbasa
  • 3 cups cabbage, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 cups cooked noodles (we use Gluten-free)

In a large skillet, saute the kielbasa, cabbage and celery in oil for 5 minutes or so. Add the mustard, garlic salt and poultry seasoning. Cook and stir over medium-heat for 4-6 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in noodles and heat through. SERVES 4

Be sure and let me know if you give this a try and what you thought about it!

Porcupine Meatballs

My mom and I were talking the other day, and she asked if I had ever made my kids Porcupine Meatballs. I can't believe I have never made them for my kids! I grew up eating them and loving was time to introduce them, and it was a winner! Even my picky little Princess loved them!! It was time for me to share them with all of you, and if you have never made them..serious you need to! They are that good.

Here's what you'll need: 1 pound lean ground beef, 1 (6.8 oz) box Beef Rice a Roni, 1 egg, and 2 1/4 cup water

Mix together your ground beef, egg, and rice. Only use the rice from the box, save the seasoning packet for later on. Make sure you get everything mixed and combined well, don't be afraid to get your hands dirty...get them in there and mix away!

Form golf sized meatballs

Brown meatballs on top and bottom, don't worry about cooking them all the way, they will finish cooking in a minute (or 30).

Mix together water and beef seasoning mix...

...and pour over top of meatballs. Reduced heat to medium-low, bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through and rice is soft. Most of the liquid will cook away.
