There are a few foods that I try to keep on hand at all times. These are what I call my go-to foods. You know, convenient foods that can be turned into a tasty meal with almost no effort.

Pasta is on my list…I can whip up spaghetti and meatballs anytime and my guys will be happy.

Canned salmon is another item that I always have handy. It’s inexpensive and salmon patties are super quick, tasty and easy to make.

Eckrich Smoked Sausage is also on my list of go-to foods to keep on hand. I love the fact that it has a long shelf life so that when a sale happens, I can load up and have plenty for meals over a long period of time. It’s also incredibly versatile…I can’t even count how many different ways I use it for a tasty meal. Everything from jambalaya to sausage and peppers, casseroles, red beans and rice, quiches…the list just goes on and on.

Plus, I can create easy meals with just what I have on hand. I just rummage through my fridge and pantry and in no time, I have the makings of a tasty meal.

Of course the main reason that I love it is because it tastes amazing. No matter how I prepare it, I know my guys will be happy with the meal that I put on the table.

  • 1 clove garlic mined
  • 2 cups cooked rice

  2. Slice Eckrich Smoked Sausage Rope in half lengthwise. Place on a rimmed baking pan.

  4. While the sausage bakes, heat oil to a medium non-stick skillet over medium high heat.
  5. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes.
  6. Add garlic and ginger and cook for one minute, until fragrant.
  7. Next, add cooked rice, chicken base and crushed pineapple. Cook for 3 – 5 minutes until rice is heated through. Remove from heat.

  9. Mix in the toasted coconut and top with sliced green onions and chopped macadamia nuts, if desired.
If you can’t find desiccated coconut or don’t want to grab a whole coconut and make your own…look for fresh coconut in the frozen aisle at your local Publix. Do [b]NOT[/b] use the super sweet coconut located in the baking aisle! To toast coconut, just place in a pan over low heat and cook, stirring often, until golden.
