Preparing homemade turkey sausage gives you more control of how much fat and what seasonings go into your sausage. If you want to avoid preservatives and added flavors, this is a great base. You can use this in any recipes that call for crumbled sausage such as Pasta with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe, Pasta with Italian Sausage, Escarole and Peppers or Sausage White Bean and Kale Soup.

Brothy Beans and Greens are the perfect Sunday dish because they need only a little prep on the front end, and then you can leave them alone to simmer. The results are a deeply flavorful stock and super-tender beans. Make them on the stove on weekends or in the Instant Pot if you want them ready in under an hour, I tested them both ways. More of my favorite bean recipes are these Dominican Beans, Puerto Rican Beans and Mexican Pinto Beans with Queso.

Sauteed brussels sprouts are delicious when shredded and sautéed with pancetta (or bacon), garlic and oil. If you don’t think you like Brussels sprouts, I challenge you to try these! I love when people tell me they don’t like Brussels sprouts, then quickly change their mind after tasting them prepared this way. I too once thought I didn’t like Brussels sprouts until my girlfriend Nicole turned me on to shredded them before sauteing in garlic and oil. Now I love them! You can easily prep everything to make this a day or two before if you are making this for Thanksgiving. You should also try Brussels Sprouts Gratin,  or  Maple Soy Glazed Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash with Bacon.
