Fast & Frugal Friday: Chicken & Turkey Sausage Grinders

Happy Friday! I think I have come up with a meal that you will love both for your belly and your pocketbook. Although I consider most of my recipes quite frugal, I am ready to even break the cost down on this one AND it is fast.

We picked up some multi-grain rolls, fully cooked chicken/turkey sausages, used a green peppers from our garden and an onion from the farmer's market for the main dish.

Because we loaded up our sausages with veggies, that is all the adults had for dinner but for the kids, we also had some whole grain noodles and a celery stick with PB.



Preparation:

1. Preheat a large pan with 2 teaspoons of oil over medium heat. Slice the peppers and onion and place to one side of the pan. Slice sausages open (but not all the way through, simply enough so you can open them for cooking) and place in pan. Saute for 4 minutes.

2. Remove vegetables from the pan and place aside. Flip the sausage and cook an additional 4 minutes.

3. Place vegetables, sausages and mustard in bun and chow down!!!

Here is the sandwich cost breakdown per person:
Sausages $1.50 for 4 (you can buy others for less but we went for the 'all natural' portobello mushroom chicken/turkey premium ones)
Rolls: $.50
Green pepper: free
Onion: .08
Mustard: maybe .01 (adults used some free chipolte mustard as a sample)
Oil: .01

Per person: $2.02 Yippee!!!

Cheap dinners are always welcome. We'd love to know where you scored gourmet poultry sausage for $1.50. That's pretty unheard of.

Hey Duo: It was $5.99 for a package of 4...it was at a local stop and shop...

The trouble with getting behind on one of the best blogs in the world (yes, savor) is sometimes I read a lot of posts in a row and leave my grinder comment in the wring place. I'll try and keep more timely. GREG

Mmm! That looks really tasty!

I will have to get the stuff to make this on my next grocery shopping day.

Any recommendations for a substitute for the onions? I can't eat them.
