Tried and True Recipe #7: Sausage, Peppers & Rice Skillet

The main ingredients for this recipe are sausage, peppers and rice. I normally use Trader Joe’s 3-minute brown rice and frozen peppers to reduce the cooking time, but I wasn’t able to get that when I made this. DSC_5745However, this recipe is pretty much the same regardless of the type of rice and peppers you buy. You could also switch out the turkey sausage for a different kind of sausage, but I prefer turkey sausage in this.
DSC_5751If you’re using Boil-in-Bag rice, go ahead and get it cooking. Follow whatever the instructions tell you. DSC_5749.JPGAfter that, cut up the sausage into 1/2-inch rounds, pour non-stick cooking spray or olive oil in a skillet and brown both sides on medium-high heat. Then, put the sausage back on the cutting board and cut the 1/2-inch sausage rounds in half.DSC_5752Next, either cut your fresh peppers into bite size pieces and throw them into the pan or just throw a bag of frozen peppers into the pan. Cook them until they are soft. DSC_5753Throw the sausage back into the pan, add the rice and mix in the seasonings (seasoned salt, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and chicken seasoning). Add a little extra oil if you need to and you have a super easy, delicious recipe that will be done and on the table in less than twenty minutes.
