Sausage Jambalaya

One of my favorite go-to meals is Sausage jambalaya. It is a one skillet, minimum prep meal that hits the spot every time. I don't have pics on this one (sorry) but it is an easy enough to follow recipe.

Sausage Jambalaya

1 lb of smoked sausage (I use turkey sausage) cut into bite size discs
1 red bell pepper, chopped*
1 green bell pepper, chopped*
1 medium onion, chopped*
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 box of Zatarain's Jambalaya mix
1 T olive oil
2 T butter

Heat oil and butter in saute pan until butter is melted (medium heat). Saute onion, bell pepper for three minutes then add garlic and sausage. Cook for another 3-4 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups water and rice packet; stir mixture. Bring to boil; then immediately lower temperature to low to simmer. Cover pan with lid (or foil if your pan does not have a lid). Cook for 20-25 minutes. (Check rice about half way through cooking time, you might have to add more water to prevent rice from burning)

I serve my rice with shredded cheddar cheese. Enjoy!

*Note: To make prep even easier, you can purchased the onion and pepper frozen mix in your grocer's freezer section.
