Each blog post I will post the link to my first post which explains why I started this blog in the first place.
So one day last week I couldn't think of anything for lunch so I looked in my freezer and found some breakfast sausage patties. Normally I'm not a big fan of breakfast sausage but it's what I had on hand. I figured with some onions and green peppers and some leftover rice I could whip up a pseudo stir fry that would be great for lunch.
Normally I make rice in a big pot, well big for us I usually do about 4-6 servings at a time. I always make Jasmine rice, it has such great flavor, and smells like popcorn. I've found the key to making rice in a standard pot is that if the pot has a glass lid it's so much easier because when you turn it down to simmer you can see that it's actually simmering. This helps to make sure that you either aren't getting it hot enough to simmer or that it's too hot and boiling the whole time. Both will ruin your rice. With the glass lid you can see what's happening in the pot at all times. I cook mine for 10 minutes, check to see how it's doing and usually cook for 2-3 minutes more to fully cook the water out.
For my breakfast sausage I just make sure that there isn't any chicken in the mix of meat. I usually use the Smithfield Brand that is fully cooked so you just have to heat it through. But if you have a favorite breakfast sausage by all means use that for this recipe.
My Soy sauce is actually Tamari, it's a wheat free soy sauce with the same flavors as standard soy sauce which makes me wonder why soy sauce has wheat in it at all.
This meal I served with some baby carrots that were just out of the bag so I had some crunch and a veggie to go with the meal.
I hope you enjoy the recipe. For this one I ate half and put the other half in the freezer for another day.

A quick and easy lunch dish that comes together in just about 10 minutes.
4 - Frozen Breakfast Sausage Patties (pre-cooked)

In a 10" non stick skillet sauté green peppers, onions and breakfast sausage until sausage is thawed and onions and green peppers are almost soft.
Chop the sausage patties into large chunks and mix with the onions and green peppers.
Take out 12 ounces of rice (I store mine in the freezer in 12 ounce paper containers so that it's ready for a quick meal)

Add a few splashes of Tamari to taste.
Pair with a veggie like raw baby carrots for crunch and enjoy.
