Total time
Serves: 4 to 6
  • ½ pound bacon, chopped
  • 1 pound smoked turkey sausage, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 yellow or green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 cups cooked white rice
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning (optional)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  1. In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook the bacon until almost golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the sliced sausage and cook until browned, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon and sausage and reserve.
  2. Add the onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic to the fat in the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add back the reserved sausage/bacon and fold in the cooked rice. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the chicken broth and cajun seasoning (if using). Cook until the broth has reduced a little. Taste for seasoning and add some more salt or pepper if necessary.
  5. Turn off the heat and add the parsley. Toss once more to combine and serve hot.
