Coming home form the gym today I was HUNGRY! It took eveything I had not to hit a drive thru. Actually I’m lucky, I have to go out of my way to see one, not far out of my way, but, you know what I mean. I made it home waistline in tact. ;~)
Upon realizing that I have nothing in the house. I mean, nothing, really. I glanced in the freezer to find a ziplock bag of some turkey sausage. Thankfully I hit a farm stand yesterday with the toddler to pick up some fresh corn on the cob. While I was there I grabbed some local peppers and a Vidalia onion. Thankfully! That’s all I needed to make a fabulous lunch!!
- 1 hot Italian Turkey Sausage link (This is the only one I know of)
- 1 sweet pepper chopped (about a cup)
- 1-2 thick slices of a Vidalia onion chopped (about a cup)
- 1 light Tortilla or wrap
- non-stick cooking spray
If the sausage is frozen, zap it in the microwave for about 30 seconds so you can get a knife through it. Cut the link butterfly style (longwise and open up) and place it on a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
While it’s cooking, chop the onion and peppers. Move the sausage around in the pot every minute or two so the juices that escape don’t start to burn. Flip after 4-5 minutes. There should be a good crust on it. Cook for another 3-4 minutes.
Remove the sausage from the pan and set aside. Keeping the temperature on medium, spray the skillet with a bit of non-stick cooking spray. Add the onions immediately. The pan is hot so you’ll get that “his”. Leave the onions alone for about a minute, they will start to get a little brown on the edges. After a minute, stir them a bit, cook for another minute then add the peppers. Stir for a few more minutes until desired doneness. I like my peppers still crunchy so I only cooked about 1-2 minutes.
Cut the butterfly sausage in half, place on tortilla, top with peppers and onion. You’re going to have too much, that’s OK. Use it as a side. :~)
