A few people have asked for the Dirty Rice recipe, and those cupcakes I made for E were so good that I thought I'd share that recipe too!
1/2 lb bulk Italian sausage (I use smoked turkey sausage instead and cut into slices)
2 cups water or chicken broth
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup finley chopped celery
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
butter or oil
1. Brown sausage in skillet 6 to 8 minutes.
Or, if you bought smoked sausage links instead, cook according to package directions.
2. Melt butter or place oil in a pan and saute rice until golden. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, stirring occasionally until rice is tender.
