We all need those meals that we can just throw together at the last minute. Sausage and Rice Skillet is one of those. Even if the sausage is frozen it doesn’t take long to thaw in the microwave.  

I make this more than I’d like to admit. It takes less than 30 minutes. I usually have the ingredients on hand, and it is so easy. 
A few tips so you can have some of these ingredients on hand as well. 
  • When polish sausage, kielbasa, or your favorite link sausage is on sale pick up a few of them. Store them in your freezer until you need them.
  • When bell peppers especial red, yellow or orange ones are on sale, pick up a bunch of them. Dice them and pop them in the freezer. They will be perfect for this recipe and for any others you need bell peppers.
  • I try to keep boil in a bag rice on hand. Watch for those sales.

Can you use long grain rice instead of boil in a bag rice?

Yes, you can. You will need to add 4 cups of chicken stock and 2 cups of rice. Add it as you would the instant rice and cook as long as the rice package directs.

Can you use Minute Rice instead of boil in a bag rice?

Yes, you can. You will need 2 cups of rice and 2 cups of chicken stocks. Add it like you would the boil in the bag rice and cook according to the package directions.
