I think it’s evident from some of my dinner and food finds posts that I love Trader Joe’s. They offer an array of comfort foods which are point friendly and also delicious. One day dinner was going to be a staple “comfort food” sausage sandwiches!
I heated up the Trader Joe’s Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage in the oven along with the Trader Joe’s Melange & Trois mixed red, yellow and green peppers. The sausages are delicious – a nice smooth garlic flavor, without being overbearing. Slapped on a hot dog roll with the peppers, a little mustard and ketchup you’d never know you’re eating a chicken sausage (well, you can tell it’s not pork because it doesn’t give you that immediate heavy feeling in your stomach). It’s also not extremely fatty as pork sausages are. They are only 3 points plus values for one, plus 2 points plus values for the hot dog bun.
A while back, I picked up a bag of Trader Joe’s Beer Battered Onion Rings and my boyfriend and I have been in love since. They are quite delicious, sweet and quite possibly THE best frozen onion rings I have ever had. Onion rings are one of my favorite fried treats (particularly when at the beach) and these are just money. They’re nicely battered, they’re sweet and they do get nice and crispy in the oven – because soggy onion rings are just a big yuck! These are straight out delicious. These are so good we typically always have a bag in the freezer as a quick side to a meal. 3 ounces is only 5 points plus values.
Quite a delicious, filling AND simple meal!
