Smoked Sausage Fried Rice- a delicious skillet meal the whole family will love!

I am a huge fan of meals that can be prepared in one pan. We are big fans of soup, but it’s not quite cool enough here yet. We’re still getting into the 90’s some days. I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get people excited about soup when it’s that hot outside. So easy dinner recipes like this that can be made in a skillet are a lifesaver!
Recipe for Smoked Sausage Fried Rice- a great skillet meal!My boys love sausage in any form, so this recipe was a big hit with them. Even the four year old loved it. My favorite thing about it is that it is packed with veggies, so I don’t need to dirty another pan to make them. Plus they give it a great crunch- just make sure you don’t overcook them!

This meal is ready in under 30 minutes, and that’s always a bonus for a busy mom. I start a batch of rice cooking in my rice cooker first thing. By the time the veggies are chopped and cooked, the rice is done and ready to add. If you have leftover rice, it is even easier to prepare!
Fried Rice with Smoked Sausage- a nice change from traditional fried rice!I served this with slices of watermelon and cantaloupe for a delicious meal that the whole family loved. Enjoy!
