Stovetop Skillet Sausage & Rice

This simple entrée will delight those who crave something different at any meal. Served with scrambled eggs, it spices up breakfast. All by itself, it makes a filling lunch. Served with vegetables and fruits, it makes a tasty supper. A scoop of cottage cheese one the side will add a nice touch at any meal. Quick and easy to prepare, it will also delight the chef. This recipe works equally well on gas and electric stovetops, camping stoves, and other portable burners.

1 pound sausage (links or patties) I box packaged rice (long grain and wild rice, with spices) *** 2 cups water

Optional ingredients:
1 jar salsa 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro 16 ounces cottage cheese *** Instead of packaged rice, you may use 1 cup white or brown rice, ¼ cup wild rice, 1 teaspoon dried basil or ¼ cup chopped fresh basil, ½ teaspoon seasoned salt, ½ teaspoon barbecue spice (the dry kind that comes in a jar), and ½ teaspoon ground black pepper.

1 deep skillet (at least 3 inches deep) with lid 1 spatula measuring cup (to measure 2 cups of water) 1 paring knife to chop fresh basil and fresh cilantro 1 steak knife to chop cooked sausage 1 serving spoon to scoop the cottage cheese

1 dinner plate 1 or 2 paper towels (two napkins will do in the place of one paper towel)

Easy Steps to follow:
1. Brown the sausage in a hot skillet – you don’t need to cook it all the way through at this time, but you do want a crispy crust on the outside 2. Set the sausage aside on a dinner plate with one or two paper towels laid on the plate to soak up the grease from the sausage. 3. While the sausage is cooling, prepare the rice: A. Allow the skillet to cool for about 5 minutes, and then pour in two cups of water. B. Add the packaged rice or your own mixture of long grain and wild rice, plus spices. C. Bring the rice and water to a boil, then immediately turn down the heat to as low as it goes. D. Put the lid on the skillet and allow the rice to simmer for 10 minutes. 4. While the rice is simmering, cut the sausage into bite-sized pieces. 5. After the rice has been simmering for about 10 minutes, remove the lid from the skillet and place the sausage on top of the rice. 6. Replace the lid on the skillet and let it simmer for another ten minutes. 7. Lift the lid and check the rice and sausage. If it still seems too wet, allow the mixture to simmer with the lid off until it becomes as thick and dry as you desire. If it seems too dry, add water and stir until it becomes thin and wet as you desire. 8. Serve as an entrée with any meal. If desired, top with salsa and / or garnish with chopped fresh cilantro. A scoop of cottage cheese on the side will add a cooling touch for those who need something to offset the spices.
