Pork and Sausage Suppers

Pork is the “other” white meat. But to Jeff, pork is sausage, bacon, hot dogs, kielbasa, and sometimes tenderloin and chops. We compromise with turkey kielbasa and chicken sausage. Click the link for the recipe.

Turkey kielbasa is combined with sauerkraut, apple, caraway, cider vinegar, brown mustard, and white wine. Then the mixture is topped with thinly sliced potatoes before baking in the oven.

Kale, balsamic vinegar, thyme, and garlic add a punch to the beans and chicken andouille sausage.

Dried beans make this a perfect dish for the crockpot. But you can substitute canned beans and make it on the stovetop instead. Just omit the chicken broth.

Combining the quinoa with chicken broth, cider vinegar, mustard, and honey gives this slow cooker dish a sweet and sour kick.

The traditional pot pie takes on a healthier twist and becomes a well-balanced meal in itself. I use ready-made pie crusts instead of puff pastry sheets or a tube of biscuit dough. The cauliflower and kale combo is delicious!

Boneless pork sirloin marinates in Asian salad dressing. (I looked on line and made my own.) Browned pork strips are then combined with whole wheat or rice pasta, packaged broccoli slaw and the rest of the Asian dressing. Top with sliced almonds, chopped cashews, or whatever nuts you have on hand.
