That said, I do still have some convenience foods scattered about the stores of food in the kitchen, back from my days of eating a good amount of them. My aversion to wasting food compels me to occasionally delve into the hodge-podge of prepared or semi-prepared goods, usually integrating one or two of those items into a dish at any given time. The last attempt was probably one of the most convenience food-laden dishes I've made in awhile. I don't even know what to call it. I must say, though, that it was pretty good--not good for me, but good to my taste buds.
Let's go ahead and call the dish "cheesy" sausage millet and hashbrowns. I'm apparently enjoying the vegan sausage and potato combination. As one might guess, this mash-up contains vegan seitan sausages (beer brats, specifically), hulled millet (mistakenly purchased instead of whole grain millet), and hashbrowns. Sauteed onion and garlic went into the mix, with salt and pepper to season. Leftover hubbard squash puree ended up in the mix, too, leading to something of a thick mashed potato effect. A little bit of nutritional yeast gave it a nutty, cheesy flavor. It was definitely a rib-sticking dish--one that goes nicely with a cold beer and nap.
