This is a great recipe. I've been making for several years now...everyone that I make it for loves it! I've made with many different sausage (andouille, spicy, turkey, etc.) also added shrimp occasionally. Always cut rice and water in half, 3 cups is way too much cooked rice. Usually only takes mine 20 mintues to cook. Excellent with cornbread muffins!! One of our all time fav meals!!
