Lowcountry Red Rice and Sausage
Red Rice and Sausage is a favorite in the Lowcountry. Whether used as a side dish or the main attraction, this iconic dish is a crowd-pleaser. It is also quite easy recipe to prepare. I like to serve it with fresh green beans and buttermilk biscuits.
1 cup brown rice
½ green pepper, diced
½ sweet onion, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
12-oz smoked sausage, sliced
4 strips maple bacon, cubed
1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
Cook rice with two cups of water over low heat.
Place bacon in a pan and cook over medium heat. When bacon starts to sizzle, add the vegetables. Sauté until the bacon is done, and the veggies are soft and transparent.
Add smoked sausage to the pan and cook until sausage plumps.
