Smoked Sausage & Rice Casserole

sausage rice 007 I have a recipe for smoked sausage and rice that I scribbled from someplace.  This morning I was walking around the kitchen in a daze, with no idea what to fix for supper.  My week was thrown off because I thought we’d be eating out on Monday and Tuesday but we didn’t eat out Tuesday.  Does that make sense?  LOL

Either way, I had to dig through my freezer and see if there was anything that would thaw quick enough for supper.  Aha!  I found a one-pound package of smoked sausage, thought about the recipe in my new recipe book and dug that out, too.

I didn’t want to make it in a skillet with white rice; brown rice sounded like a nice change and brown rice takes a long time to cook, so I decided to turn this into a casserole.  It turned out pretty good!  And, instead of making a 9 x 13 with leftovers, I made two 8 x 8 casseroles and the other one will go into the freezer for later.

Here’s my recipe:

One pound smoked sausage

One can cream of mushroom soup

One can of evaporated milk (12 ounces)

One can of evaporated milk (5 ounces) because 12 ounces wasn’t enough!

sausage rice 004One cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese – or more!

1/4 cup frozen green beans

sausage rice 001Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray both casseroles with PAM.  Slice up smoked sausage into coins, then slice coins in half.  Eckrich sausage comes in a one pound package of two links; I used one link in each casserole.  I added the green beans to the casserole we had tonight; the other would be frozen and veggies that have been frozen, cooked and frozen again turn to mush.
