Kielbasa Sausage Rice

Today we’re sharing a recipe for Kielbasa Sausage Rice.  This is the perfect dish to cook from your pantry and is both delicious and comforting.

This Kielbasa Sausage Rice is absolutely delicious and depending on what seasonings you use, it can be quite versatile.  We choose to make it more of a cajun style rice and use Tony Chachere’s Seasoning.  You can also use a steak seasoning such as Montreal Steak Seasoning if you prefer those flavors instead.

Are fresh or frozen vegetables better for Kielbasa Sausage Rice?

You can use fresh or frozen vegetables in this dish.  We typically use fresh first but then start using up what we have pre-chopped in the freezer.  This is a really great way to use up some vegetables and make a meal that is filling and can stretch to feed many by the addition of rice. 

What type of rice is best for this recipe?

You can use any type of rice you prefer.  We’ve made this rice with both white and brown rice and it has turned out awesome.  So whatever kind of rice you have in your cupboard will do just fine.  Just pre-cook about 2 cups of dry rice and that seems to be the perfect amount to add to this skillet.
