Try this great skillet meal anytime for comfort food at it’s best.  Made with Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage and served with cornbread muffins. Your family will love it! You can also make this with hamburger and fresh vegetables this time of the year make it extra special!

1 cup long-grain rice, uncooked
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
1 (7 ounce) can mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic or 1 clove of garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 lb. smoked sausage, sliced in rounds, I use Hillshire Farms (could use turkey sausage, hamburger or turkey burger)
dash hot sauce (optional)
Brown rice, onion, celery and green pepper in butter.  Add broth, mushrooms, garlic, salt, pepper, tomatoes,  sausage and hot sauce.   Cover and let simmer for about 25 minutes until rice soaks up liquid.
Makes about 6 to 8 servings. Serve with my recipe for Cornbread Muffins!    Enjoy!
Note:  If you use hamburger or turkey burger, you would brown it with the rice, onions, peppers and celery.
