Dollar Store Dinners - Sausage And Rice

What You Need:

-Smoked Sausage -Cooking Oil -Frozen Seasoning Mix (Celery, Onion, Bell Peppers, Parsley) -Long Grain White Rice -Chicken Broth -Creole Seasoning -Hot Sauce


Slice smoked sausage.

Slice Sausage


Heat vegetable oil (or any cooking oil) in a deep skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the sliced sausage and cook until browned.

Cook Sausage


Add the frozen celery, bell pepper, onion, and parsley mix (called “seasoning mix") and sauté until heated through.

Add Seasoning Mix


Add rice, Creole seasoning, and cups chicken broth (made with the bouillon). You don’t want to add too much Creole seasoning here because it contains salt and you don’t want to over-salt the dish.

Add Broth, Rice And Seasoning 


Stir everything together until evenly combined. Place a lid on top, turn the heat up to medium-high, and allow the broth to come up to a boil.

Stir And Boil


When it reaches a boil, turn the heat down to medium-low and let the skillet simmer for 15 minutes (do not remove the lid or stir it). After simmering for 15 minutes, turn the heat off and let it rest with the lid in place for an additional five minutes.

Simmer And Cover


Fluff the rice with a fork, then season to your liking with extra Creole seasoning and hot sauce.
