This was delicious!! Although I did use 4 cheese sausage. And used 1 cup uncooked wild rice and 1-1/2 cups chicken broth. I debated whether or not to drain all the grease from the sausage, so I left SOME of it in thinking it would give it a little more flavor and make it saucy. Which did leave a perfect texture and great flavor (imo)!! But if your looking for a drier rice, drain ALL the fat. My whole family loved it!
This was so good! My husband and kids loved it. I plan on making this for a side dish for Thanksgiving.
I give the simplicity of the recipe 5 stars, but need to knock the final rating down to 4 stars based on how my dish turned out. Is it suppose to be a saucy/gooey version of dirty rice? The ones I've had in restaurants were much drier. I like everything about this recipe - the easiness, the flavor - all except for the gooey texture. How do I get around that?
very good recipe.thanks
Original review: July 30, 2007.This is very good. It was better than I thought it was going to be. I used pork regular sausage This is versatile. I had leftovers, which I made a stuffed green bell pepper with. I topped it with salsa and shredded cheddar cheese. It came out really good. I like it when I can use leftovers in something else. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for such a good recipe V. May 17, 2009. I am still making this recipe. Today I used fresh pork. A lady at the Farmers Market I go to raises pigs and has them butchered and packaged. The sausage is so good. It has very little fat. It makes this recipe taste soooo good!!! Thanks again V.
This turned out so good! I used turkey sausage just to cut back on calories, and it still turned out really good! Other than that I followed the recipe. This was very easy, and my kids really enjoyed this! Thanks for a great recipe!
Easy, quick and tasty!! DD made this one tonight for me as a side dish for the ZWT3 and it was delicious. I used HOT and spicy italian sausage and it was actually too hot for DD, but DH and I LOVED it!! ;) Thanks for a keeper, Chef V!!
This sounded so good that I really wanted to try it out but I just couldn't face 60% fat. I apologize V, but I used veggie sausage mix. I know this is sacrilege for a Southern recipe but it was good! and it worked quite well. I used it as the main dish for dinner with carrots and a salad. The whole thing was done in double time.
Great side dish and so much more substantial than standard rice. I threw in a little turkey bacon for some smokey flavor and served it with Brolied Scallops. It went over VERY well. Thanks!
