Sausage and rice skillet makes an easy weeknight meal for your family.

 
 

Sausage and Rice Skillet is an easy recipe to throw together at the end of a busy day or just anytime. Add some of my fried hoecakes and you have a one-dish meal!  This sausage and rice skillet is comfort food at its best.  You could easily cut this recipe in half for two people.  This keeps well for several days refrigerated and is even better the second day. This recipe is very versatile in that you could substitute different kinds of meat and add your favorite spices, too.  Smoked sausage or Italian sausage would be great in this recipe.  Use your imagination and make it your own creation!
