    Oh yummy! I actually lowered the servings to 1 and then to 1/2 cup of the rice and all else accordingly. It was still a big brekkie for me but oh so good. I used leftover rice, some baked ham that was in the freezer. This is substantial enough to keep you going for a long while and in my opinion it's quite suitable for any meal of the day. The seasoning was spot on for me in this dish. In short, I loved it. Thanks Deb :D

    Saved this a while ago and was waiting until I had some left over rices as DH loves cajun food. Well we were not disappointed and he's already asking me to make it again. I did make changes due to what i had on hand, but don't think it made any difference in the great taste. Used white rice and a red bell pepper and sausage instead of ham. For the creole spice used recipe#22089 then followed the amounts as directed. Just right for us with. Will be using this one again and again.

    Very yummy. I did reduce the rice to 1 cup and it was more than enough for 2 people. DH and I enjoyed this very much for supper. Made for ZWT9 Family Picks.
