Want to dazzle your friends or family with a delectable dinner? Instead of going for the traditional risotto – not that there’s anything wrong with it – let’s get a bit creative and add a twist to your rice! Some cheese for creaminess and sausage for rich flavor – my mouth is already watering just picturing it. There’s no time to wait – let me show you how to make the extra yummy one-pan cheesy rice and sausage skillet!

To get started you just need a few simple pantry ingredients that you likely already have on hand to get going with this recipe and if you’re missing something place a quick Instacart order!

My favorite types of dinners are the ones that don’t need many complex ingredients. Here’s what you need for my one-pan cheesy rice and sausage skillet are the following:

  • Smoked beef or turkey sausage, thinly sliced
  • Jasmine rice or rice of choice 
  • Bell peppers, finely diced
  • Celery, finely diced
  • White onion, finely diced
  • Campbell’s cream of chicken soup
  • Water
  • Kosher salt
  • All-purpose or any all-purpose seasoning of choice 
  • Paprika
  • Italian seasoning
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Garlic paste
  • Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Olive oil

Gather your friends and or family, get yourselves a nice bottle of pinot grigio, and start the night with a bit of cooking! Here’s how to make one-pan cheesy rice and sausage skillet:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Saute the thin slices of sausage in olive oil on medium heat in large cast iron or oven-safe skillet. Do this for about 3-5 minutes, until both sides turn golden brown.
  3. Set aside the sausage and add the bell peppers and onions to the skillet – saute until fragrant and soft, approximately 2 minutes
  4. Add the garlic paste and season, followed by the rice. Mix everything until nicely blended in, and finish off by adding the sausage, cream of chicken soup. Finally, make it even for cooking.
  5. Top off with cheese and leave it in the oven to bake for 30-40 minutes or until all the liquid is gone and the rice is tender. Serve up and savor every bite!

    Can I do this on the stove top? Then add in the cheese toward the end?
