1 lb FULLY COOKED SMOKED TURKEY SAUSAGE, cut into 1/4 inch slices

1 tbsp olive oil, DIVIDED

1 c chopped onion

1/2 c celery, cut into 1/4 inch slices

1 Medium green pepper, seeded and cut into 1/2 inch slices

1 Clove garlic, minced

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves

1-1/4 c uncooked long-grain rice


1 Can (16 oz) tomato sauce

To Taste salt and pepper



In a 5-quart saucepan, over medium heat, sauté turkey ham and sausage in 1 teaspoon oil until lightly browned on all sides. Remove from pan and reserve.

In the same saucepan heat remaining oil; add onion, celery, green pepper, garlic and seasonings. Cook about 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.

Add rice and cook an additional 5 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Add broth and tomato sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until the rice is tender.

Remove bay leaf. Stir in turkey ham and sausage. Heat well. If needed, add 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir well.

Serve hot in bowls.
