I made this simple Sausage and rice recipe short of a fried rice style. This classic combination brings together the savory goodness of sausages, bacon and ham with the comforting texture of rice. It’s a versatile recipe that can be prepared in countless delicious ways.
Combination of Meats
When you bring together sausage, bacon, and ham in a single dish, you’re essentially creating a symphony of meats. Each one contributes its unique flavor and texture, resulting in a dish that’s rich, savory, and utterly satisfying. The combination of smoky bacon, hearty sausage, and salty-sweet ham creates a harmony that’s hard to resist.
The Versatility of Vegetables
Adding vegetables to this sausage and rice recipe is not only provides a burst of colour but also introduces a refreshing contrast to the richness of the meats. You can customise your dish with an different varities of vegetables, from bell peppers and sweet corn to zucchini and carrots. The vegetables not only add nutritional value but also a delightful crunch and natural sweetness that balances the dish.
Rice: The Perfect Partner
Rice, in this case, serves as the perfect partner to bring all these elements together. It absorbing the flavors of the meats and vegetables while providing a satisfying texture that ties everything together. The result is a harmonious dish where every ingredient shines. Leftover rice is ideal for this recipe. I used Basmati Rice for this recipe. You can use any long grain rice.
The seasoning possibilities for this dish are endless. You can go for a smoky barbecue flavour, a spicy kick with Cajun spices, or a simple yet flavourful combination of herbs and garlic. The choice is yours, allowing you to tailor the dish to your taste preferences. In this sausage and rice recipe, I didn’t use the any sauce, my favours come from the different flavour of the meats and herbs.
How to cook sausage and rice recipe step by step
Carefully choose your favorite sausage variety or experiment with different flavors to create a unique twist. Once your pan is adequately heated, lay the sausages down gently, sizzling as they make contact with the hot surface.
The exact cooking time may vary depending on the sausage type, but a good rule of thumb is approximately 8-10 minutes.
After the sausages have been cooked, transfer them to a clean plate or cutting board. Proceed to slice them into delectable portions and set these aside.
In the same pan, where the rich flavors of the sausages have left, Pour a generous amount of olive oil and allow it to heats up.
Carefully crack three fresh eggs into the pan, each one offering its own distinct richness. As the eggs sizzle upon contact, gently scramble them.
Remove them from the pan and set them aside.
Begin by heating up a wok or a generously sized pan As the heat gradually rises, add a drizzle of olive oil.
Cut the dried sausage into small pieces and cook these sausage pieces in the pan for 3-4 minutes until they turn a bit brown.
After that, toss in some diced ham, garlic, carrots, bell pepper, sweet corn, and green peas. Give everything a good mix to let those flavors mix together in the pan.
