This past weekend, we really got a chance to enjoy the nice weather after days and days of clouds and cold temperatures. To enjoy and celebrate the beautiful spring temperatures, we had a little family cookout with a special guest ….the 35th anniversary limited-edition blend of KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic barbecue sauce. My husband, being a total lover of the grill and BBQ sauce had no objections and even and took over the grill while I prepared a very special side dish.
I took one of our favorite grilled potato side dish recipes and gave it a bold and flavorful update with loads of bacon bits, cheddar cheese and a generous helping of KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic barbecue sauce. It adds a rich and bold flavor to these grilled potatoes that pairs perfectly with grilled chicken or kabobs.
After about 40 minutes on the grill, the potatoes come out nice and tender with the cheese melted all over and the BBQ sauce blended in nicely.
Since it has been rainy and well below average temperatures for summer I’ve been trying to come up with some ways to keep the kids from going bonkers. We’ve been stuck in the house and that pretty much leaves us with cartoons, board games and kitchen fun.
I pulled out my perfect ice cube trays and a few packets of KoolAid. For this 4th of July themed drink you’ll want to get red and blue KoolAid packets. Just make a jug of each as you normally would. I actually cut back on the water a little bit so the flavor would be stronger. Freeze them in ice cube trays and you’ve got some festive flavored ice cubes. You can drop them in any drink you want but a fizzy Sprite works really great.
Breakfast is a tricky meal around our house. Most of the time, I try to just skip it altogether during the week. I have gotten better about it with making fruit smoothies, but it’s still my least favorite meal of the day. Even our kids aren’t big on breakfast. They’ll have a yogurt, maybe a small bowl of cereal but like me, they try to skip it if I don’t coax them to sit down for a bite to eat.
Fortunately, there’s one dish they’ll come running to the kitchen to the eat for breakfast or even a snack. These sausage cheddar biscuits are perfect for a meal on the go. You could even make them on the weekends and fry an egg to sandwich between a cut open biscuit for a complete meal!
To make these, you’ll definitely want a bag of Jimmy Dean Fully Cooked Sausage Crumbles. These are so convenient to have in the fridge! The sausage is already crumbled and cooked making it ready to add to any dish like scrambled eggs, country gravy or a casserole.
In this recipe, the sausage crumbles getting mixed into a bowl along with cheddar cheese, Bisquick and milk. You could even add a little garlic powder for an extra bit of flavor but it’s really not needed. The sausage really makes these biscuits flavorful!
When the mixture is combined, you simply drop clumps of the dough onto a baking sheet and baked for 13-15 minutes. For an even quicker breakfast, you can make these ahead of time on a Sunday and package them into a plastic zipper bag to refrigerate and pull out as needed throughout the week. They’re even better warmed up in the microwave for a few seconds.
When you break a warm biscuit open, you can see the gooey, melted cheese and hearty sausage crumbles in every bite! So now my only question is … what would YOU make with Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles?
