|Smoked Sausage & Cheesy Rice|
This tasty smoked sausage skillet dinner is a complete meal cooked in one pan. Quick, easy and totally delish.
A member shared this off a recipe page called “Janet’s Appalachian Kitchen.” This lady doesn’t have a website, just a Facebook page where she shares her wonderful recipes, otherwise I’d give a link, but she’s easy to find if you want to follow her page.
|Tasty, tasty, tasty!|
I love all the ingredients in this. I had kielbasa and used that in place of the smoked sausage. I can’t really tell the difference between the two to be honest. I also used fresh broccoli and had some frozen diced red bell peppers in the freezer. I did buy the extra-sharp shredded cheddar as Janet specified just that in the recipe–and with good reason. It makes it taste so much better than just regular sharp.
This was just so good, I couldn’t stop eating it!! You can’t ask for more than something abundantly tasty and so easy to make.
This is a wonderful way to use leftover rice too!
