Recipe Thursday: Smoked Sausage with Rice and Vegetables.

Good Morning.

This week's recipe is one that is easy to "dress down" for the kids and "dress up" for the adults. When I make this I use a whole package of the Smoked Sausage. I cook half of it for the kids and they eat that with plain white rice. I use the other half of the sausage for me and my husband with the veggies, and the gravy.

1 package Smoked Sausage sliced and quartered
1/2 onion chopped (doesn't have to be super fine)
1/2 Green and 1/2 Red bell pepper. (Again, a little chunky is good)
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1-1/4 cups of Chicken Stock
Rice (whatever kind you want, cooked according to directions)

Preheat the oven to 200
Sautee smoked sausage in a little bit of oil over medium-low to medium heat (--remove 1/2 if doing for kids. If not, then only start with 1/2 of the sausage.)
Add the chopped onion, and bell peppers and sautee until sausage is brown.
Remove mixture to an oven safe dish and cover. Place in oven just to keep warm.
Add 2 Tbsps of butter to pan and melt. Add the flour and stir together until smooth. Whisk in the chicken stock, making sure to whisk continuously, so you don't get lumps. You may need to add more or less stock.
Cook the gravy until it bubbles and thickens and then lower the heat to simmer
Take the sausage mixture out of the oven and stir it into the gravy.
Add some fresh parsley at the end if you have any and adjust your seasonings to taste.
Serve the sausage/veggie mixture over white rice.
