Quick and Easy One Skillet Meal

Are you one of today’s busy, hard-working people who comes home at the end of the day dreading kitchen duty?  Here is a quick and easy meal that won’t break your food budget or keep you in the kitchen for an extended period of time.  Smoked Sausage Skillet Meal has meat, vegetables and fruit all in one skillet.  Add a salad of red tomato slices topped with sliced mozzarella cheese and drizzled with herbed olive oil.  Finish off your meal with Lace Cookies made with Equal sugar-lite.  The recipes for the Smoked Sausage Skillet and the Lace Cookies follow:


1 lb. Smoked Sausage

1 can sauerkraut, rinsed and drained

3 tbsp bacon drippings or canola oil

1 small onion, thinly sliced

1 medium apple, peeled and thinly sliced

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp celery seed

1/2 tsp dill seed

1 tbsp SPLENDA

1/2 cup water

1/8 tsp black pepper

In a heavy medium-size pan, heat bacon drippings or oil and add onion to saute.  Add the remaining ingredients except the sausage.  Cover and cook slowly for 15 minutes until apple slices are soft.  Cut sausage into wedges and add to pan.  Continue cooking until sausage is heated through.


1 egg

1/2 cup Equal Sugar-Lite

1 tsp melted butter

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Beat egg until light and fluffy.  Gradually beat Equal into egg.  Add butter and vanilla; combine well.  Add oats, pecans and salt.  Combine until well blended.  Drop batter to make 24 cookies onto a greased baking sheet.  Flatten using a knife or small spatula.  Bake for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
