Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Sausage Cabbage

I made pickled beets again this year.  When I bought the beets from my Veggie Lady, Vickye, she had some beautiful heads of cabbage.  The first one I bought I made stuffed cabbage......it's a recipe I learned many years ago and have no measurements......it's a little of this and more of that.  The cabbage had such a wonderful flavor that I HAD to buy another head.  But what to do with it?  I searched the internet and found a recipe and tweaked it a good bit......and this is what I came up with.  It was SO good......hubby went back for seconds!!!

Makes 6 Servings = 4 PointsPlus®
Makes 4 Servings = 5 PointsPlus®

14 oz. Pkg Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, cut on a slant and then in half
2 TBSP light butter
1 medium red onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 medium head of cabbage (@2 lbs), chopped
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
salt & pepper to taste

Very lightly spray a large nonstick skillet and brown or warm the sausage.

Add 2 TBSP light butter, onion and green pepper over medium-high heat until veggies are slightly tender.

Add the cabbage, tomatoes, salt and pepper; cover and cook on low heat for @15 minutes or until the cabbage is tender, leaving the cover off for the last 5 minutes to allow some of the liquid to evaporate.

MY SPIN: I added 1 TBSP of that minced garlic in liquid just because. You could add more veggies which wouldn't add P+. You can use any kind of turkey sausage you'd like, but this was what I had on hand.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus® value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving life!
