This Smoked Sausage, Tomatoes and Okra is a great recipe to use up fresh garden vegetables but could be made with frozen and canned vegetables, too. This recipe makes a quick, easy meal served over rice. My family loves the fresh vegetables in this dish.
1 (14 ounce) package smoked sausage, sliced in rounds
2 tablespoons bacon drippings or cooking oil
1 cup chopped green onion
1 chopped green pepper
3 cups peeled and chopped fresh tomatoes 0r 1 (14 ounce can diced tomatoes)
2 cups chopped fresh okra (could use frozen)
1 cup fresh or frozen corn (could use canned)
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, Optional
few drops hot sauce
Brown sausage, green onion and green pepper in bacon drippings. Add all the remaining ingredients and simmer covered 15-20 minutes until okra is tender. Serve over rice. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!
Note: You could add some fresh zucchini to this recipe, too. Just chop up a cup of zucchini and add when adding the vegetables.
