Southern Nights In The North Supper

Here is my idea of perfect holiday food. I made some vegetarian "snausages" a while back and froze them. Of the three flavors I made, this one was my favorite. Sun dried tomatoes (since no one should be eating fresh ones until the whole salmonella mess is clued in) have the most intense flavor. I often just eat them fresh from the bag (I buy dried ones, not those soaked in oil).

I served the grilled and sliced "snausages" over spiced rice (sorta my version of Jambalaya). The lower right "patty" is mac and cheese with a batter around the outside and then dipped in bread crumbs and baked until the outside is crispy and set. I am not into cheese but hubby loved these.
Here is a close up of the Jambalaya. Very intense and spicy , so have a pitcher of lemonade or iced tea on hand to cool off the tongue.

I melted Earth Balance with garlic and paprika, a little salt and pepper to drizzle and bam! was this tasty. A perfect plate that even the pooches enjoyed. They love corn on the cob and we serve it to them while holding the ends. Certainly no leftovers! Have a safe and thoughtful Independence Day here in the USA and Happy Canada Day to our northern buds. Share the bounty with all you love.
