There’s nothing better than a one-skillet meal I can throw together during the week that the entire family loves! I cooked up something new using hearty ingredients like Hillshire Farm® Beef Smoked Sausage that I bought at Target.
I shopped at Target for Hillshire Farm® Beef Smoked Sausage in the refrigerated meat section so I could prepare a delicious weeknight meal. I hate to do dishes so one-skillet meals are right up my alley! The sausage has a wonderful smoky flavor that makes this skillet meal a favorite for both kids and adults.
My recipe is unique because instead of using sauce, it uses the water from the vegetables (tomatoes and onions) with seasonings (garlic, basil, oregano, balsamic vinaigrette and honey). It’s flavorful without being coated with sauce! The beauty of the skillet meal is that you can customize the ingredients for your family’s personal tastes. Sometimes kids can be picky eaters so it’s better to simple cut down the number of ingredients for them. Next time I make this recipe I’d love to spice it up a little by adding jalapenos! See my recipe below so you can make it for your family!
12 oz. Hillshire Farm® Beef Smoked Sausage (sliced)
1 small yellow onion (diced)
8 oz. mushrooms (sliced)
5 small vine-ripened tomatoes (diced)
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
1 can (15 oz.) cannelini beans (drained & rinsed)
2 cups white rice (prepared)
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinaigrette
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
salt & pepper
1/2 cup pitted ripe black olives
1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sliced sausage until browned then set aside
2. Add olive oil to skillet then saute the onions. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
3. Add the sliced mushrooms and tomatoes to the skillet and saute
4. Add the garlic, cannelini beans and white rice to the skillet
5. Add the cooked sausage back to the skillet and then add in the seasonings: honey, balsamic vinaigrette, oregano and basil.
6. Lastly, garnish with black olives and serve
The black olives make a lovely and tasty garnish for this meal. After feeding my family of four, I was thrilled that I had enough leftovers to save three more meals in the fridge. Leftovers make the perfect lunch the next day! This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hillshire Farm®. The opinions and text are all mine. Please read my Disclosure Policy.
