Ingredients

  • 1 lb smoked andouille sausage or kielbasa cubed
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 ¼ cup long grain rice
  • 1 32 oz container low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 small green bell pepper small dice
  • 6 medium green onion thinly sliced and divided
  • 1 Tbsp Creole seasoning Adjust more or less to your taste
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 small red bell pepper seeded and diced small
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • In a medium-size heavy bottomed skillet brown the kielbasa in a light drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes or until beginning to brown.
  • Add the rice and stir until the liquid in the pan is absorbed.
  • Add the chicken stock, Creole seasoning, diced green bell pepper and ½ of the sliced green onion . Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to simmer and cook partially covered until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 20-25 minutes. Cool.
  • To bake, Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 13 x 9 inch dish with cooking spray. Spread the rice evenly into the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup shredded cheese.
  • Beat together the eggs and half & half. Add the red bell pepper, remaining green onion, garlic salt, black pepper and remaining cheese. Mix well. Pour over the rice.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the eggs are set. Rest for 5 minutes then cut and serve.
