Tell Me About It Tuesday - My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe

Thanksgiving is just a little over a week away - already! Can you believe it? We're starting to plan menus and figure out who's bringing what with my family. One of my family's very favorite Thanksgiving Recipes is "Sausage & Rice", for lack of a better name and because its very simply - just sausage and rice. I'm going to share it with you today...
Sausage and Rice

Start with two boxes of Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Rice Just cook the rice according to the directions on the box, which is: Use 4¼ cups of water and 2 tablespoons of butter. Combine them, with the seasoning packet in a medium saucepan on high until boiling.
Then, reduce heat and simmer for about 25 minutes or until all water is absorbed.

While the rice is simmering, open a package of Jimmy Dean's Sage Pork Sausage and brown in a skillet. Break it up as much as you can while browning.
When both are done, drain the sausage and combine them in a casserole dish and wa-lah you have sausage and rice. It's so quick and easy and it's delicious - especially beside some cranberry sauce. You know the kind I'm talking about - that takes the shape of the can!
Delicious! What's your favorite Thanksgiving recipe?
