The holidays are a hectic time for everyone so when I’m cooking for family, I like to find ways to cut corners on time without sacrificing flavor. In this recipe turkey sausage patties are served with crispy hickory-smoked bacon, melted nutty gouda cheese and homemade cranberry mayonnaise and topped with arugula on toasted sourdough bread.
I love adding Jimmy Dean’s fully cooked turkey sausage to sandwiches for an easy holiday lunch! They’re so easy and they can take as little as 45 seconds to make! Pick it up at your local Kroger family store (Fred Meyer, Ralphs, QFC, Smiths).
Around the holidays, I always have plenty of family and friends to entertain and I find I put so much focus into the main holiday meal that I forget that people are staying multiple other days that I need to feed them for as well! My mind gets so preoccupied with the main holiday meal so I love creating easy recipes that can be made for a crowd in a pinch.
Everyone always gets so excited by the smell of Wright Hickory Smoked Bacon wafting throughout the house – they’re immediately drawn to the kitchen. I opt to cook bacon on an aluminum-foil lined baking sheet in the oven when making sandwiches. This way the bacon cooks evenly and flat for extra-crispy pieces that can easily be stacked.
Even better – the mayo and bacon can be made ahead of time and you can get guests involved and serve it assembly line style! The food should be what brings people together during the holidays, not what creates the stress.
