One of my favorite things to cook with is rice. It is so versatile and can be used to make everything from casseroles to sides, and even desserts! Success Rice is the ORIGINAL Fool Proof 10 Minute Boil-In-A-Bag Rice, that can be cooked on the stovetop or in the microwave, making it a quick and convenient product to use in my rice recipes.
Success Rice comes in four varieties: White Rice, Whole Grain Brown Rice, Thai Jasmine Rice, and Basmati Rice. The different varieties make it easy for you to experiment and change your recipes, and their white and brown rice variety can also sit up for 30 minutes before being served, for even more convenient cooking.
I get in the habit of trying the same recipes over and over. I find a few things that I like, and I stick with them! Or I will often use a recipe I have and just change an ingredient or two and call it something different.
But this week I made a meal with Success Rice that was a little different. You could call it man food! (In fact, you could definitely call it man food because the man of the house actually helped me come up with this one!) I’m calling it Cheesy Sausage & Rice! And it’s very hearty, and definitely not bland! Here is the recipe!
Cheesy Sausage and Rice
Success White Rice (1 bag)
1 package Smoked or Polish Sausage (about a pound)
3 Cups Colby Jack Cheese (of other cheeses would work as well)
1 Can Red Beans, drained
cooking spray or a little butter/margarine.
Directions: Prepare rice according to directions. Meanwhile take your can of red beans and drain. Set aside.
Chop sausage in to small pieces. And drain Get a large pot or sauce pan. (I used a 5 quart pot, but a 3 quart would probably work just as well.) Spray the bottom with cooking spray or had a little margarine (maybe 1/2 tablespoon). Place on medium heat. If using cooking spray, add sausage immediately; otherwise wait for margarine to melt and then add sausage. Heat through, stirring often to prevent scorching.
Remove from stove and immediately add cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Then add red beans. Stir until all three ingredients are well combined. Season as desired and serve over rice.
Tip: You can also use other beans like black beans or pintos. And you can try adding things to the mix like peppers.
