Hello divas! I hope that you had a fantastic weekend and are looking forward to a great week ahead. It was quite hot (STILL) here in Tennessee on Saturday but Sunday proved to be a little cooler. In fact, it was downright pleasant this morning. Which makes me so happy because that means it is almost time for me to get my crockpot out and make some super yummy meals. If you didn’t already know, I am a southern girl born and raised. Growing up, I knew that that once fall arrived and the weather started getting cooler that my grandma would make a huge batch of Brunswick Stew for the family. I always looked forward to going home and having this wonderful dish for dinner. But you know me – I love to make easy healthy recipes so I decided to lighten it up a bit – and put it in a crockpot. So today I am sharing my Skinny Crockpot Brunswick Stew.
The main thing I did to save some calories and fat in this recipe is replace the hot sausage with turkey sausage and replace the beef with deer. Being from a southern family, I have cousins who love to hunt so the hubby and I always get deer meat each year. You can also use ground turkey as a lighter option to the beef. Also, I used lower sodium corn but you can also use fresh corn (off the cobb) if you have some.
Oh and best of all is that this is now a crockpot recipe. I LOVE my crockpot this time of year. It makes it so easy to prepare fabulous meals without too much of a hassle during the busy week. So if you get a chance, check this recipe out and enjoy a bowl.
