Denny’s Red Beans and Rice with Sausage

I remember my dad making the best quick-to-eat meals I ever ate! He always had his own concoctions and they were always mouth watering and delicious. This dish is usually INTENSE in flavor, but I changed it up a little bit. I sure hope you enjoy!

Red beans and rice

Olive oil, bell pepper, onion, red beans and rice, and beef  sausage links

Makes: 4 servings

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 green, red, yellow, OR orange bell pepper ( color of your choice), chopped

salt and black pepper to taste

3 1/4 cups water

1 (8 oz) pkg red beans and rice

1 pkg angus beef sausage links (we prefer eckrich brand)


In a deep sided skillet, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat.

Add the chopped onion and bell pepper, saute over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until onions become slightly translucent. While peppers and onions are sauteeing, slice the sausage links into 1/4-inch slices and add to the peppers and onions, continue cooking on medium heat for another 5-7 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Add 3 1/4 cups of water to sausage, pepper, and onion mixtureAdd (8 oz) package of red beans and rice mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20- 25 minutes or until liquid is mostly absorbed stirring occasionally.

I usually add some red pepper flakes at this point, stir and let stand for 5 minutes before serving!

Enjoy! Mmm!
