Easy Jambalaya

Shares 12


I clipped this recipe out of Southern Living magazine ages ago.  The original recipe calls both for chicken and smoked sausage, but I leave the chicken out.  If you like it very meaty, you might want to double the smoked sausage.

Here’s what you’ll need:


1 onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

1 pound smoked sausage, sliced (I use turkey smoked sausage)

olive oil

3 cups uncooked long-grain rice

2 cans French onion soup

1 can beef broth

1 can chicken broth

2-3 tsp. Creole or Cajun seasoning

hot sauce

Saute the onion, green pepper and smoked sausage in a bit of olive oil in a large Dutch oven.  Stir in the other ingredients.  Bake, covered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Give it a stir about 30 minutes into the baking time.  Makes 8-10 servings.

Mine was no where near done in 30 minutes, but I think that might have to do with the Walmart brand rice, as I’ve had that problem before with that rice.  I pulled the pan out of the oven and brought it to a boil on the stove, then popped it back in for a while longer.

I also used 3 tsp. of the Cajun seasoning, which was a bit much for the little people in the house.  They ate it, but complained of the heat.  I didn’t use the hot sauce, but my husband added it to his serving.  He can take the heat better than the rest of us.

  7. Jambalaya is so hot and I’m not into sausage that much but this looks like a tasty meal. It may be worth serving if I was entertaining guests, babysitting or working. Actually, it may be a nice thing to feed actors and crew who I work with. I may link to this from my film food blog and send to some filmmaking friends!

  8. i use a rice cooker for perfect rice every time and then sautee all the ingredients and toss together… great website..

  10. I was wondering if you could make this in a crockpot. I don’t have a Dutch Oven. Thanks
