Here’s how to make this recipe with sausage

Learn how to cook smoked sausage in no time at all!

(full recipe is below)

Olive Oil + Butter – olive oil and butter together are best to sautee anything in. The butter has amazing flavor and the olive oil helps to brown.

Smoked Sausage – If you have Hillshire Farm at your store, this is my favorite! You can also use Italian sausage as well. Chicken sausage can be a simple way to cut down on the fat content. You can easily use different types of sausage.

Broccoli Florets – Cut broccoli into small bite size pieces. They’ll also cook faster.

Seasonings – This takes the flavor up a notch.

Instant Rice – You want to rice to cook fairly quickly so instant is best. You can also make Instant Pot Rice.

Shredded Cheddar Cheese – this is optional. But it gives amazing flavor!

How To Make This Smoked Sausage Recipe:

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and olive oil until melted. Add the sliced smoked sausage and cook for about 5 minutes until sausage begins to brown.

Step 2

Add the broccoli and cover. Reduce heat to low and cook about 5 minutes more – stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Add the cooked rice, garlic powder and onion salt to the skillet. Stir well.

Step 4

Add the shredded cheese – stirring well until the cheese is melted.

Enjoy!

Remove from the heat and serve warm.

    I enjoyed this recipe, but I added a few things and increased others. I had grated carrots, so added about a cup of those with the broccoli. I used 2 cups of cooked brown rice using boil in bag rice…and increased the seasoning amts and cheese to reflect the larger additions. It turned out great!

    I made this and the original recipe is great. It’s a keeper! although I tweeted to fit my families likes and what I had in the cupboard. I added a coarsest chopped onion when I was browsing the sausage, used frozen broccoli, 90 sec rice packs, and add chicken broth. My kids like sauce. It’s is so fast an easy and tastes good. Thank you for the recipe!!
