Look, MA! I’m posting one of your awesome dinner recipes!

Look, friends! It’s time for another version of one-skillet/pot/pan deliciousness! AND, thanks to our friends at Minute® Rice for sponsoring this post!

Hi Hi, pals! Happy Sunday! Got plans? It’s supposed to get up to 80 degrees today! After months of sub zero temps, today is going to feel like a heat wave.  I’m heading to the beach!

Except that I’m not. I’m heading to my beautiful friend’s bridal shower and eating all the kifli and baklava that I can handle. YAY ME!

One other thing you should know about me – my food dreams are definitely made of one-skillet, 30-minute meals. Can you tell? I HOPE we’re all on the same page!

Growing up, I remember my mom always managed to have dinner on the table, 7 nights a week. She worked full time, took care of us full time AND made dang good food, all the time. Now that I’m walking in her shoes, I am starting to see that doing all those things is, like, not easy. It’s straight up hard!

Thus, to keep up with this wonder woman status, and as evidenced by the title of this recipe, I took one of Mom’s awesome dinner ideas and included it in our weekly rotation.

When mealtime seems like a hassle, one of my besties, Minute® Rice, is always there to gimme a hand.


Minute® Rice was my mom’s dinner go-to thrice a week. It’s easy to prepare, it’s versatile, it’s delicious, and it takes just minutes to cook. Also, she often made rice pudding with leftovers, which was then our dessert.

Sidenote… come to think of it, back then, we didn’t even realize that we were having rice for both, dinner and dessert. Huh. Smart Mama.

Also? We were eating gluten free before we even knew about gluten free. Just sayin’.

Look at that pan! This is a feel-good situation. Let me tell you about the extras we’re working with. Smoked Turkey Sausage is first.
While my Mom always used her homemade (super woman, I tell ya!) sausages, I take a different route and reach for the skinless, refrigerated type.

Next, our beloved trio – onions, peppers and garlic – are brought together to add to the wonderful texture and flavor. Followed by up some veggie stock and couple handfuls of rice, 20 minutes into the game and BAM! We have dinner on the table.

    First I’d like to say You’re awesome for letting the trolls have it. They didn’t want to read the blog but took the time to say they didn’t want to read the blog 🤔🤣

    I’ve made this several times and my whole family loves it. I’ve used bratwurst, leftover or fresh, and chicken broth in place of veggie broth. Still tastes amazing!

  2. Jdub

    Delete the long boring story and keep the recipe.

    Stop adding backstory just to squeeze in more ads

    That is all

      1. M

        Seriously, enough with the excessive and ultra pointless back stories for every single recipe. Literally no one cares, we all skip these fake ass paragraphs. I came here for dinner ideas, stfu

        1. Katerina Petrovska

          Hey Troll,
          So, you came to MY blog, MY property, MY website, to tell me what I can and can’t write on it? Go and get your recipes from the wordless websites like, Bon Appetit or Food Network. Why are you hopping to recipe blogs if you don’t want to read them? 🙄 There’s also a button at the very top of this post that says “JUMP TO RECIPE”. Click that and POOF! You won’t have to read a damn word. This option will simply just scroll you straight down to the recipe card. Then, you can just print it, and gtfo. Problem solved.

          1. Lisa

            AMEN. Go read a cookbook. Asshole.

            I love the stories about your mom. Tell everyone who doesn’t to go eat crap for all you care.

            I love the stories. I bet your mom does too (if you’re fortunate enough to still have her). My mom has been gone 16 years, she made every ingredient count also. No waste. You keep it up girl!!

    I love this! I had leftover jasmine rice that I needed to use. So I cut back on the broth and when the veggies were cooking I added a little tomato juice too. Since the rice is cooked I added it at the end with the little bit of broth and veggies in the meat and sprinkled a bit of cheese on it shut it off, put the lid on it. My kids loved it and they’re young and can be difficult

  4. D

    Misread the ingredients. It’s minute white rice or _minute_ brown rice. I thought it meant just regular brown rice and I’ve been at the stove for hours now adding water as it cooks.

  5. Rena

    OK, all the excellent reviews, but mine did not come out good at all. I’m so disappointed. I guess I’m the only one that did not understand the instructions. my dish turned out mushy and soggy. I used regular cooked white rice. The recipe didn’t state uncooked or cooked rice.

    1. Ann M Hinton

      Minute rice absorbs water. It is dried and then the boiling water makes it cooked. It’s like instant potatoes. That is why your dinner was soggy. Try it again with your cooked rice and maybe only half cup of liquid.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Samantha! Yes, you can, but you will have to cook it for a bit longer, or for as long as it takes to cook the rice… should be about 20 minutes, instead of 5.

  6. Vickie

    Like them all..but, the two I purchase the most is their wild /brown rice and we all love the aromatic Thai Jasmine…so cook with shrimp Bombay.

  7. Shiran @ Pretty. Simple. Sweet.

    This recipe reminds me of my mom, too! She used to make the same dish when we were children. She is an amazing cook, and always makes simple quick recipes. Probably half of the recipes on my blog are inspired by her 🙂

  8. Joey Simmonds

    Minute Rice Original is for me.

    I would like to be as organized as your mother. Happy Mothers Day ladies.

  9. Michelle G.

    My favorite minute rice is probably their brown rice – it’s so much quicker than regular brown rice!!

  10. Mariah @ Mariah's Pleasing Plates

    Your mom sounds like super woman! I wish I could have dinner on the table 7 days a week!
    Loving this one skillet meal, definitely a thing of beauty. =) Pinned!

  11. ginette4

    I love Minute Rice plain white rice..use it every time I’m in a hurry, stir fry’s are amazingly good and fast!

  12. Jo Skidmore

    Quite honestly, I have never used a minute rice product. Cooking regular rice doesn’t take all that long that I need a short cut…

  13. Jie Min Gan

    I have not tried. Been on my list though. After seeing this recipe, definitely making my shopping list!

  14. Gail Weitzel

    Brown Rice Minute Rice is the best thing for a quick dinner for the family. I can quickly saute whatever veggies and meats are in my fridge and add them to the finished rice. Yum!

  15. Christine

    It’s the making the rice in the same pan that makes this genius. Did I mention I don’t have a dishwasher?

  16. Janet Pallavicini

    Boy does this bring back memories or raising the kids, working,, etc. Taking the sausage & rice recipe with us when we go to cabin for mini R&R.Note to Lindsey – they do make instant brown rice. O use this as husband not to fond of brown, I fix him a white. with leftovers I just combine both. I also make it with chicken broth for extra flavor.

  17. Cheryl

    I love the brown rice. It takes no time to make instead of the regular brown rice that takes forever to cook. This is just as good.

  18. Vicki

    I love Minute brown rice – big time saver! And I really enjoy your blog – you have shared some awesome recipes.

  19. karen

    I like the Minute Brown Rice for its nutty flavor. Recently, I have noticed that Minute has a Jasmine Rice and on the website there is a Basmati Rice. I can see some new dinner ideas in our near future.

  20. Anastasia Falling

    I love plain old white rice 🙂 I just put some salt and butter on it and YUM! It’s a meal by itself 🙂

  21. Linda

    I have a recipe I cut off a box of Minute Rice over 40 years ago. It is called Fiesta Rice and I could feed a family of 5 with a tasty dish and there were never any leftovers. I have it out on my counter right now as a matter fact.


  22. Linda

    One pot meals are my favorite ways to fix a quick dinner. The Kitchenaide Stand Mixer is something no kitchen should be without I think.

    Wishes for tásty dishes,
