Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Spritz a 2 1/2 quart casserole with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  3. Heat drippings in a heavy 12-inch skillet over med-high heat for 1-1 1/2 minutes until ripples appear on pan bottom.
  4. Add sausages and brown, stirring occasionally, 3-5 minutes.
  5. With slotted spoon, lift to bowl and reserve.
  6. Decrease heat to medium; add in onion, bell pepper, garlic, thyme, and bay leaves to drippings and cook, stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes until limp and lightly browned.
  7. Return sausages and accumulated juices to skillet; add all remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil.
  8. Transfer to casserole, making sure all rice is covered with liquid, and cover with snug lid or foil tightly smoothed over casserole.
