If you have not discovered Aidell's Chicken Apple Sausage....well, now you have. This is a great last-minute dinner to keep in the fridge or freezer. The 15 packs that Costco sells come in three separate packages and they are a better value than the 4-6 packs available in your standard grocery store. They are low in fat and calories, too, so a good protein choice if you are watching your weight. They are delicious with BBQ sauce, too.
While they are fully-cooked and can be served simply warmed, I prefer to have Corey grill me up a pack when he already has the charcoal grill out for another grilling assignment. If he is grilling me steaks, chicken, or burgers, he just throws on a pack of these after we've sat down to dinner and gives them a nice char. I then refrigerate them until later in the week, reheat them in the microwave, and serve with some freshly-prepared sides. It feels like a newly-cooked dinner but only requires partial prep!
Here are some suggestions for sides that go well with a chicken apple sausage dinner:
- Easy Corn Casserole
- Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes
- Sweet Beans
- Charred Summer Vegetables
- Corn, Zucchini, and Basil Saute
- Green Beans with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette
And of course, don't forget a salad! Happy grilling this Memorial Day weekend!
