Product Review: SOL Cuisine Breakfast Patties

Vegetarian/ Vegan Wheat free Gluten-free Saturated fat free Low fat 7 grams protein I have eaten these Breakfast Patties and they are great! This brand is great for my husband because it has gluten sensitivity and these are gluten-free. There are other vegetarian breakfast sausages on the market but all have gluten. We prefer to not have soy (unless it is organic). We also need Sol Cuisine Veggie Breakfast Patties because of the carbohydrate count.  It is low! 3 Carbs per pattie. We bought ours at Albertson’s. 20130626-122611.jpg 20130626-122620.jpg

Product Review: Mrs. Renfro’s Salsa

I use salsa often to snack on with my tortilla chips.  I recently tried a new (to me) brand of salsa, Mrs. Renfro.  I tried 4 flavors.  I was planning to make a recipe but my hubby created a 7 layer dip.

There were 4 flavors in the box.  The salsa came with recipe cards.  J C used the 7 Layer Dip recipe:

Here is the result!

We used the Garlic Salsa for this dip.

The other flavors I tried are: Green Tomato, Peach Salsa and Black Bean salsa.

I love the taste of all 4.  I recommend all 4 and the Peach Salsa stands out because I have never had peach in a salsa.  The peach was awesome!

Renfro Foods is located in Fort Worth, Texas


They know what they are doing with that salsa!!!! Yee Haw!!


Layer a large glass bowl with following ingredients:  1 can refried beans ( I used black beans), 8 oz. sour cream, 1 jar of Mrs Renfro’s Garlic Salsa, 8 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese, 8 oz. shredd Cheddar cheese,  1 bunch of green onion, chopped, 1 can black olives , sliced,  Serve with tortilla chips
