    Pepina Rae's Note:

    This is a recipe I developed by trying to duplicate a rice dish from a restaurant. It ended up being very simple and quick. It came very close to the original. Some folks even say it's better.

    1. 1
      Cook rice.
    2. 2
      While rice is cooking, chop onions into 1/4" pieces separating the bottoms from the tops.
    3. 3
      Sauté the bottoms along with the loose sausage until cooked thoroughly, about 15-20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Then add 1/2 bouillon cube and 1/4 cup water and mix thoroughly. Turn off heat.
    5. 5
      Add onion tops and toss so that residual heat will take the bite out of the onions.
    6. 6
      Mix rice with meat mixture and serve.
    7. 7
      NOTE: The amount of onions are to taste, but do not use less than 2 bunches. The Cajun seasoning is also to taste. Do not add salt, as the bouillon and Cajun seasoning take care of the saltiness. Enjoy!

      This is a great recipe! I like how it all came together. Even with all the seasonings I did find the rice a bit bland so next time I might cook the rice in the water with the bouillon powder and some more seasonings. Thank you so much for posting :)

      This recipe is most excellent!!! Easy to make, and it smells absolutely wonderful while it is cooking. I add a cup of cooked peas to the mix to make that one dish meal. Try it, you'll like it!!!

      This is the only recipe that I will cook for large amounts of people. I make it for my men's church group on potlucks and since I don't cook much this simple recipe works well. I found a local cajun spice sausage and it works, matter fact I had to cut down on the spice a bit. It had to be good cause the cajun men (Thibodaux, LA) said it was jus' righ cher' , but, us non-cajuns there thought it a bit much.
