Filling, flavorful and easy to make, this New Orleans-style dish is a Monday night tradition in Louisiana. And the addition of smoked turkey sausage makes it perfect as a delicious meal all by itself, or as a robust side.

This is a favorite of ours because it tastes great and is quick and easy to fix. I omit the oil to lessen the calories and add only 8 oz. of the smoked turkey sausage to the rice mix and water. My husband likes to top his with grated sharp cheddar. Read More

It was okay, but since "the stuff in the box" did most of the work I can't give this one anymore than 3 stars. Followed the directions exactly and will use it again but it's an insult to call this a recipe. Read More

I added strips of onion at the beginning with the sausage, instead of green onion at end. Great recipe! Read More

This recipe is perfect for a quick easy and inexpensive meal. Next time I would use 2 lbs of sausage as my family likes more meat with their meal. Read More

This is a very easy recipe and tastes like something my mom would make, so it's great comfort food. It does taste like it's missing something though - may work better as a side than a main dish? Next time i'll be cooking it in butter as opposed to oil to see if that adds a more robust flavor. Read More
