Quick and easy. That's the name of the game when it comes to dinner these days. Something new? Not really. I started the weeknight dinner series because frankly, not everyone has the time (read: energy) to make elaborate meals during the week and sometimes a little added inspiration can help those in a food rut.

Sausage and Greens

Ingredients:

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1-2 bags of baby spinach
  • 1 package of chicken sausage (try this one), sliced
  • 4 strips of turkey bacon
  • olive or coconut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sriracha

Steps:

  1. Heat a teaspoon of oil in the bottom of a medium saute pan over medium heat.
  2. Cook the bacon to your desired crispiness, remove and set aside.
  3. Add a little more oil and the onions. allow to cook for a few minutes until translucent.
  4. Toss in the sliced sausage and let it sizzle for a minute.
  5. At the first sign of browning, add the spinach on top and begin to combine the sausage and spinach as the greens begin to wilt.
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, mix in sriracha and continue cooking for a minute or two.
  7. Turn the stove off and crumble the cooked bacon into the mixture.

Devour. Sure this didn't take a ton of thought, but it also didn't take a ton of time. Makes 3-4 servings.
