Find @MomStart Cooking it Up: Hillshire Farms #Blogher12 Booth #1005 Turkey Sausage Jambalaya Recipe

No they are not my sponsor, my Blogher12 sponsor is Pampers, but everyone has to eat and I did this in advance but feel amazing honored for Hillshire Farms to be featuring this recipe at their booth at Blogher that’s going to be seen by what over 4000 bloggers? Honestly, I had help coming up with this recipe, usually I search around the web until I’m inspired. I’ll use something like and type in the ingredients that I want to use and see what looks good to me and my family. This time, I found two chefs at my church to help me. I gave them the requirements and this is what they came up with and are letting me use on my blog. I’m very grateful to them for their help and will share their FULL story at a later date because they have an amazing testimony to share.


This is the main ingredients. I was challenged to create a recipe with one of three different types of Hillshire Farms sausage. I chose Turkey Kielbasa Sausage. Then I had to choose things from three other categories. This is what they helped me come up with.

Turkey Sausage Jambalaya

½ a 13 oz package Turkey Kielbasa Sausage Jambalaya

Toss the rice mixture with the freshly chopped tomatoes and thyme.

Thank you to Hillshire Farms for this opportunity and for the gift card to buy all the ingredients and a Spa Finder Gift Card. Plus I have to thank Pampers for sponsoring me to Blogher12 without I wouldn’t have this opportunity to showcase a recipe.
