If you, like me, moonlight as your kid’s chauffeur– you are probably all too familiar with what, I lovingly and often refer to as the “After-school/camp Hustle”.
Filled with pick ups and drop offs (sports, friends, shopping, oh my!)… the after-school hustle –always full of surprises– devours hours of your day.
And every day mid-hustle we are faced with the question, “What’s for dinner?”
I cannot tell you how many times I don’t even think about dinner until one of the kids reminds me that it is indeed time to feed them… again.
But with dwindling hours, we need quick, we need easy– we need more options– beyond dialing in pizza.
And when we find these quick, easy, and delicious options? We need to go forth and share!
Because, it takes a village my friend, it takes a sometimes virtual, …online… village.
So today, I am teaming up with Hillshire Farm to share one of our favorite quick and easy sausage meals.
First, let me share my biggest “life-on-the-go” meal prep secrets.
Ok. Are you ready?
The key is to find ways to make your favorite meals, bite size.
For me, this means breaking out the muffin pan and wonton wrappers–and let me tell you– you’ll be AMAZED at how many of your favorites you can make this way.
Wonton wrappers hold all the things, my friends.
All the things.
One of our favorite wrapped-up dinners on the go, is sausage and pepper bites.
– Oh! The yum that is jam packed into these little bites of heaven– that only take under 30 minutes to make –*AND* can be made ahead and stored for the week!
This weekend we are taking a 3+ hour road trip for a weekend away at an NBA camp for my son.
The plan is to leave straight from camp, and we are all sure to be starving– so I headed to my local Stop and Shop for all of the staples I need to whip up these sausage and pepper bites for the road…. But then found Hillshire Farm Polska Kielbasa & decided to try a new twist!
Here is a quick video snap shot of how easy it was to prep this before our trip today!
One of the things I love about the Hillshire Farm smoked sausage is that is pre-seasoned– which means one less step! Holla!
- 1 Package sauerkraut
- Spicy mustard
- 1 Hillshire Farm Polska Kielbsa
- Wonton wraps
- Salt and Pepper
In addition to my usual wonton cups, I made these like traditional wontons as well. The cups were definitely easier make, but the wontons were neater to eat… both equally delicious.
Some other Hillshire Farm sausage flavors you can choose from are:
- Smoked Sausage
- Polska Kielbasa
- Chicken Hardwood Smoked Sausage
- Lite Polska Kielbasa
- Beef Polska Kielbasa
- Beef Smoked Sausage
