This was great- Husband loved it, and typically doesn't like casseroles or rice! We used a Cajun seasoned sausage, removed casing, cut the rice and liquid in half - based on comments above. Skipped the sour cream altogether. Will make again!
I was struck, when this was finished, how little meat was in the dish. I love vegetarian recipes, but I didn't think this was one. I could have easily doubled the sausage and still felt it was on the light side. As it was, I felt like it was a rice pilaf that should have been served on the side of something.Also, I used turkey sausage, and perhaps the flavor wasn't great because of that. It reminded me of liver. If I had been able to use regular sausage perhaps the flavor would have been better. To do that, however, I would have had to use sausages with additives one child reacts to. Based on the sausage I used, I would rate it as "Fair or Good" but as that wasn't following the recipe, I have to assume it would be "Good or Very Good" if regular sausage was used.I'm going with "Good" because of the resemblance to rice pilaf, as stated above. I thought it was a main dish.
This was delicious and very easy - a great winter meal with orange slices and a dinner roll. Everyone asked for seconds. My son's girlfriend even asked for the recipe. I used a pound of sausage.
This is wonderful!!! Very easy. My husband asks for it often. And, as a bonus, it's quite healthy with the low calories, lots of fiber and protein. If you're on a diet, make it with turkey sausage and low-fat sour cream. Try it with cold red cabbage salad (the German/Polish kind) as an accompaniment.

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
