andouille sausage recipe

With Summer on the horizon I’m constantly thinking up simple recipes that won’t heat up the kitchen.  The LAST thing I want is to come in from a hot day outside only to slave away in a hot kitchen!

So, today I bring you a SUPER simple recipe of Andouille Sausage with Rice and Sweet Peas.

I’ve never had Andouille sausage before—I’ve had Kielbasa and figured it was pretty much the same thing—we’ll Andouille sausage has a bit of a kick to it—so if you like spicy this is the dish for you!  If you don’t like spicy simply swap out the Andouille sausage for Kielbasa sausage.  Kielbasa sausage is a milder sausage that has a little sweetness to it.

So, why try Andouille sausage if I normally make this with Kielbasa?  Well, because I’m a BzzAgent and got to try out Johnsonville’s fully cooked dinner sausages.  I LOVE that each sausage is individually wrapped and that there’s no fillers- just premium cuts of pork.  Okay now for this SUPER simple recipe:

1 Package of Sausage

1 Can of Early Sweet Peas

1 Cup of Rice


Slice sausage into medallions and toss in a skillet.  Let it cook on medium heat till slightly brown.

Make rice according to directions (this won’t work with instant rice- so if you’re using instant just make the rice and peas separate) drain peas and add to the rice water when you add the rice- let it all cook together.

Once rice and peas are done- serve warm!
