- 2 large bay leaves
- 1 tsp. “Better than Boullion” Beef – beef blend
- 2 stick butter
- 3 packs of smoke sausage – pork and beef blend ( sliced into bite size pcs.)
- Montreal steak seasoning
Place 2 cans of beans and smash completely, you can also blend it in a food processor. Place smashed beans and all other ingredients in large pot.
Cook on Medium until it starts to bubbling about 30 minutes to an hour. Lower heat to Low to simmer. Stir every 30 minutes, slightly smashing remaining beans as they cook. You will cook until it becomes very creamy. The longer it cooks the better it will be.
This is a quick way to enjoy Red Beans & Rice without the headache of cooking it from dry beans. When I cook these no one can tell its from a can.
Cook rice and serve beans over rice with cornbread on the side.
Cornbread – I use Jiffy cornbread mix. ENJOY!

Today I had the great pleasure of spending the day with my grandson. He is always a happy child and he has a way to make your day shine when he’s around. He loves cooking “making recipe” as he calls it.
so happy he is “making recipe” with Nana
boy boy boy
loves to stir the pots
pulling out is dough
adding tons of cheese
he even likes to clean up after
He spent a few hours with his Nanny having a fun snack at the local cookie store. Then home with Nana to spend the afternoon. We cuddled in the lazy boy and watched a few movies then decided to “make recipe” Pizza night.
We took a rotisserie chicken breast and a leg quarter, (we deboned it), had artichoke hearts ( cut into bite size pieces) a 1/2 jar of Bertolli Garlic Alfredo sauce that was left over from other meals within the week I had left over. We warmed the Alfredo sauce in small pot with about 1 heaping tsp. of Smoked Paprika, a few shakes of Tabasco (jalapeño blend) and about two heaping tbs. of Kraft’s Parmesan & Romano blend cheese (I always that handy in keep in my fridge). We made our homemade pizza dough set that aside covered for 45 mins to rise. I then took, ground beef, 8 strips of bacon cut up in to tiny pieces, Canadian bacon (cut to bite size), diced ham & a handful or two of “Holy Trinity” (see reference items) I browned all the meats with a few seasonings of choice.
Our dough was ready we divided it, a personal for J, a deep dish for the all meat mixture, and a thin for the artichoke, chicken Alfredo pizza. We worked our dough baked each for about 7 mins. for the two larger pizzas and about 4 mins. for J’s pizza. Removed from oven then layered our pizza sauce the meats, then topped with Lots of Mozzarella cheese. Bake on Pizza setting (some ovens may not have pizza setting so if your oven does not just set to bake) at 425 degrees for about 20-30 mins. for the deep dish, about 10-20 mins. for the thin and about 10-12 mins. for the personal pizza depending on amount of toppings.
