Recipe by Adams Momma

I grew up on these and absolutely love them. When I visit my mother and she asks what I want for dinner, this is it. Specifically, I use Jimmy Dean sausage with sage already in it, Basmati rice, cook them in an old electric skillet and baste them with the juice a couple of times while they're cooking.
