A Quick and Easy Southern Staple

Hey Y’all!

In the South we’re known for our delicious and savory dishes, and this post is no exception. I decided to make a quick and easy southern staple; Tomatoes, Rice, and Sausage. Since the weather is finally cooling down it’s the perfect dish for the cold weather evenings. Keep reading for the recipe and the  final product.


-2 cups of rice

-1 1/2 -2 pounds of Hickory Smoked Sausage

– 1 can of Hunt’s Petite tomatoes

-Salt and Pepper as needed for taste

(Add a little sugar to cut the tanginess of the tomatoes if you desire)

2 Tablespoons Flour and Water as a thickening

1 Tablespoon of oil

First, you need to cut your sausage into small circular bite size pieces. Add one tablespoon of oil into a saucepan.  Then add the sausage, and stir on medium heat until brown.

Then add your tomatoes into a saucepan,  stir your tomatoes slowly while adding  your water and flour thickening on low heat. Add pepper as needed for taste.

 Once your tomatoes have simmered and thickened for about 5-10 minutes. Add your tomatoes into the saucepan with your sausage, let it simmer for another 10 minutes.

Serve your tomatoes and sausage over white or brown rice.

Have a Cornbread muffin, a glass of Sweet Tea, and Enjoy!
