Oh yummy! I actually lowered the servings to 1 and then to 1/2 cup of the rice and all else accordingly. It was still a big brekkie for me but oh so good. I used leftover rice, some baked ham that was in the freezer. This is substantial enough to keep you going for a long while and in my opinion it's quite suitable for any meal of the day. The seasoning was spot on for me in this dish. In short, I loved it. Thanks Deb :D

Saved this a while ago and was waiting until I had some left over rices as DH loves cajun food. Well we were not disappointed and he's already asking me to make it again. I did make changes due to what i had on hand, but don't think it made any difference in the great taste. Used white rice and a red bell pepper and sausage instead of ham. For the creole spice used Emeril's Creole Seasoning then followed the amounts as directed. Just right for us with. Will be using this one again and again.
