Mom’s One-Skillet Sausage and Rice – Easy, 30-minute, one-skillet meal with smoked turkey sausage, fluffy white rice and flavorful veggies.
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.
SAUSAGE AND RICE
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.
This creation makes me feel like a dinner hero. Rice for the win!

Not bad… the only issue I had was that I kinda had to double the amount of vegetable broth your recipe calls for. It could just be the rice, and I supposed that 2 cups wouldn’t be enough for 4 cups of minute made rice. Otherwise, I’m pleased. Thanks for the recipe!
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!
Delete the long boring story and keep the recipe.
Stop adding backstory just to squeeze in more ads
That is all
Uhm… how about, NO. My site, my real estate, my content. Thanks!
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
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.
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
I am very happy you enjoy it! Thank YOU! 🙂
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.
Would boil-in-bag rice work just like the minute rice?
Thanks for the easy and quick recipe
I’m very glad you enjoyed it! Thank YOU! 🙂
Does the rice that goes In at the end need to be cooked Or no?
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.
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.
So I made this last week and my sons and husband are begging me to make it again! Thank you, Katerina! 🙂
Very happy to hear that!! 😃 Thank YOU! 💕
