So, I keep a few things on hand for when the hubby and I aren't in the mood to cook - you know, quick and easy stuff. One of my favorite things to keep on hand is pretty much anything made by Zatarain's. This week I had their Dirty Rice on hand, but realized I had no meat. When the hubby texted me tonight asking me if there was anything he could pick up at the store, I told him to pick up a Hillshire Smoked Sausage. What was I thinking? Dirty rice isn't made with smoked sausage, is it? I guess it is if I make it, so here we go...
Starting out, we have the two main ingredients:
First, I sliced up the sausage fairly thin:
Next up, I fried quickly in a fry pan because I love when it gets crispy:
Mix up the Zatarain's according to the directions on the box, add your meat and bring to a boil:
Throw a lid on it, simmer for 25 minutes - and voila! My weird version of dirty rice...(it was actually pretty tasty)
