Yummy Rice and Sausage

I have a new recipe. I tried it out last night. Really, it's a new concoction. I'm very fond of creating my own dishes with whatever I have laying around. Here's what I did.


2 packs Birdseye Steamfresh Rice and Vegetables
1 pack Hillshire Farms Kielbasa (6 sausages in the pack)
1 can Campbell's Tomato Soup
1 can Water
A dash of Cajun seasoning
A dash of garlic powder
A spoonful of butter


Cook the rice according to package directions.
Cut the sausages into bite size pieces.
Melt the butter in a frying pan.
Add the sausages to the frying pan to brown them.
Put the cooked rice in a pot.
Add the tomato soup and water to the pot.
Add the seasonings to the pot.
After the sausages are browned, add that to the pot.
Heat until tomato soup is thoroughly heated.


At first it appeared that the dish would be more soupy than I had intended. However, after the soup had time to get hot the dish was relatively thick and chunky. The rice absorbed a good bit of the excess liquid.

This was DELICIOUS. I will definitely be making it again. I only recently started using the kielbasa, mostly because I got some awesome coupon deals that made it financially feasible to buy them. I never knew how easy they were to cook. I've always loved eating them, but thought they would be complicated for cooking. Silly me...
