Do you have a go to when you really don’t want to cook but want something really really good? Mine is Hillshire Brands dinner sausage. My mom made dinner sausage in several ways and it was always great! As a mom I use it a lot too. It’s easy to add to just about any dish or as a stand alone. It’s a people pleaser and it’s already cooked so it’s a mommy pleaser too! This Chicken and Sausage Skillet with veggies was a pleaser for my family. Being a mom is hard work and eventhough I want to provide a well balanced meal for my family sometimes mac and cheese is just easier. Think about it most meats you have to thaw, cut, and cook first. That takes time I sometimes don’t have. Not to mention I have a two year old at my heels. Since this sausage is already cooked is so simple to add protein to any meal. And yes, sometimes it’s adding it to mac and cheese, don’t judge. Sometimes though I get to have a little fun. I found a coupon for several Hilshire products – did you know Hilshire Brands also included Jimmy Dean and Ball Park – mind blown. This coupon was for Safeway from the J4U online coupon center.
My coupon above has been redeemed but if you click on it you can sign up for Just 4 U and add your own coupon. The sausage isn’t the only Hillshire Brands product with a coupon. You can also find lil’ smokies, Jimmy Dean Sausage, and and Ball Park franks. My husband told me I can add this to “my list.” I guess I am supposed to be keeping tabs on what meals he likes. And my two year old ate just the sausage, go figure. I can only try for a well-balanced meal.
