You know the phrase ” you have to open a lot of oysters before you find a pearl.”? Well, I checked out some cookbooks from the library a few weeks ago. It is my favorite way to try out new recipes. I had several books that I flipped through and marked recipes I wanted to try with post-its. Then I planned my menu for the month with these recipes in mind. Let’s just say that you have to try a lot of recipes before you find one that is worth repeating!
Here is the only one I have tried so far that will make it back to our menu again. It is like a homemade Zatarain’s. My handsome fella and I loved it and the girls picked out the sausage!
This is a great one to get started as soon as you get home and then just let it finish cooking for the hour that you help kids with homework, spend some one-on-one time, or go for a quick walk around the block!
Easy Sausage Mix
Crumble into a skillet and brown:
- 1 to 1.5 lbs of pork sausage
Drain the sausage and return to skillet.
Add to sausage:
- 1 green pepper, chopped
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2-3 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 cups of chicken broth (I make mine by boiling 2 cups of water and adding 3 bouillon cubes)
- 1 cup of uncooked rice
- 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Cover and let it simmer on the lowest possible heat for about one hour.
Season with pepper to taste and serve.
