Simple Broccoli & Sausage Skillet
adapted from Food.com
You all know I love Publix, but lately their meat deals have left something to be desired! While checking out the Publix ad this week, I realized all I had to work with was some bargain Pork Sausage, but thankfully my buddy Shannon (who helps so much on PPP!), suggested this Simple Broccoli & Sausage Skillet.
Now, if you’re totally against using Velveeta (I understand, but goodness it’s good!), you may be able to also substitute cheddar cheese and just melt it smooth. You can also easily substitute Turkey or Chicken Smoked Sausage for the Pork Smoked Sausage to limit your calories. (We used the Turkey Smoked Sausage which halved the calorie content in half and still tasted so good!) I served it over a plate full of bargain Wacky Mac Pasta, and it was a great deal turned into a meal at our house this week.
Here are the coupons and deals you’ll want to watch for to make this a great meal deal this week:
