Let's Do Lunch GROUND-CHICKEN SAUSAGES... eat until full (these sausages Taste like the Best Pork Sausages you have ever eaten!) 

8 oz ground chicken breast (skinless)
½ cup drained & mashed pinto beans
1 egg (use Egg Beaters)


2 tsp Morton's Sausage and Meatloaf Seasoning Mix (this seasoning mix Makes Chicken Taste EXACTLY Like Pork Sausage...if your local grocery store doesn't have this, you can order it at www.mortonsalt.com)

Beat egg with fork. Mix in chicken, beans & seasoning. Let set to thicken. Make into patties and fry on grill or pan sprayed with olive oil... makes 4 patties.

Butter-bean Potato Cakeseat until full (these Potato Cakes taste Better than regular potatoes!)

3 cans LARGE Butter Beans (do Not use Small nor Baby butter beans...and look at Ingredients to make sure they are Not Lima Beans), cooked & drained
1 cup frozen corn kernels, defrosted & drained well
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup finely diced green bell pepper
3 or 4 T of 99% fat-free chicken broth

Mash or blend the butter beans in a large bowl. Add the chicken broth & blend until they're smooth & creamy. Add all of the other ingredients & stir together. Refrigerate the mixture for an hour or two before proceeding to the next step. Make into patties, approx. 1/3 cup each. This will make 11 or 12 patties. Heat a skillet on medium/high with 2 T olive oil and cook patties on one side until browned. Turn over and cook on the other side until browned.
