This was very good I used basmatti rice and added mozzarella cheese for the last few minutes of baking. Would definately make this again.
This is such a simple recipe but it yields a very tasty result. I only had hot Italian sausage, so that was what I used (I'd like to try it with sage breakfast sausage too) and since I can't eat green peppers I used red. I also added about 2 tbs fresh basil, chiffonaded and sprinkled freshly grated Parmesan over the top. My family were all but kicking their plates. Thanks, Cliff, this is a keeper.
Quick to throw together with a minimum of fuss. I forgot to add the bacon but it was still good. Leftovers were good also.
This dinner came together very nicely and it fit my plan of “using what I have on-hand”. DH & DS are big fans of rice dishes. The fact that this dish uses bacon, sausage, onion and peppers, I knew it would be a huge hit in my house. Cliff G. – it was, they loved it. They both called “dibs” on the leftovers for their lunch the following day. I prepared a salad, bread and fresh fruit to go along with this meal. Thanks Cliff for sharing your recipe, it will be repeated often as I usually have all the ingredients on-hand.
This is sensational! I made two small changes regarding the ingredients: First, I had some hot sausage and hamburger mix that was leftover from some chili I made, so I used that instead of straight sausage. Second, I had some fresh sage for a soup recipe I am going to make, so I used that instead of the dried- I just added it in at the end of cooking the onion/pepper mix. Other than that, I followed the ingredients exactly. Regarding the directions- I had some bacon already cooked from a previous recipe, so I didn't have the reserved bacon fat to brown the meat in. Otherwise, I followed the directions. This was quick and easy to make (especially so, since the bacon part was done ahead!), and the whole family loved it! It probably could have been cooked slightly less than a hour, as it was just a tad dry, but really not enough to be noticeable. I can't wait to give a copy of this recipe to my mom- my dad will LOVE this! Thanks Cliff G- this will be going into my regular rotation. Perfect comfort food for the chilly winter months :)
