RECIPE :: Walnut Burger Sausage Pizza

RECIPE :: Walnut Burger Sausage Pizza

There’s a key ingredient that is always part of the program when the Jenkins get together :: Mama J’s homemade pizza. And with our family, it’s always topped with Walnut Burger! When we crave time with the family clan, we undoubtedly crave this mouthwatering alternative to sausage. Try it on your favorite homemade or store-bought pizza! Ingredients: 4 thawed Walnut Burger patties 1/4 to 1/2 tsp red chili peppers 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fennel seed Mix red chili peppers and fennel in with Walnut Burger patties. Brown small “clumps” — resembling sausage — in a nonstick skillet, turning to make sure all sides are browned.

Bake at 500 degrees for 8 minutes; rotating top to bottom, and bake for approximately 7 more minutes or until crust is firm underneath. Buon Appetito! photos...
HAPPINESS :: 10 Most Beautiful Places in America

HAPPINESS :: 10 Most Beautiful Places in America

It’s the beginning of a new week and early in the new year. We thought it only suiting to reminisce a bit about some of those inspiring and motivating instances from our past. One of those top-of-the-list moments… In 2003, USA Today named The Upper Mississippi River as one of the top 10 most beautiful places in the United States. The article mentions the Trempealeau Hotel :: our family’s restaurant where the Walnut Burger was born! #3 :: The Upper Mississippi River :: “For third-place honors, we turn to an area less celebrated than others, but nonetheless packed with the unique beauty our nation abounds in. Its low profile makes it all the more charming. To truly appreciate the Mississippi, we leave the familiar territory of Huck and Tom and take a spin on the Great River Road as it runs alongside Old Muddy’s upper reaches through Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. One of the nation’s most scenic routes, it winds over hills, atop towering bluffs and through one 19th-century river town after another. The sites along the way read like chapters in American history. Ancient Indian burial mounds punctuate rolling parkland, sidewheelers ply the river, and villages on either bank present fine examples of Steamboat Gothic, the ornate architectural style born in the heyday of river travel. In Galena, Ill., 85% of the buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. At Trempealeau, Wis., the Trempealeau Hotel has offered haven to watermen since 1888. The whole laid-back region’s real draw is the river itself. Steady and timeless, it makes one fine traveling companion as it rolls toward the Gulf.” via...
