I have a huge weakness for sausage.

And when I say weakness, I mean, I will pick sausage over a slice of chocolate cake.

Or any other dessert for that matter.

A creme brulee donut.

No.

It won’t do the trick.

The sausage wins.

Easily.

The sausage wins even more when you couple it with peppers, rice and cajun seasoning.

It’s a true winner across the board.

It also gets bonus points because the rice cooks in the foil packets too.

Genius, I know, guys.

  1. You really ought to put that it’s pre cooked sausage you used… I used raw without knowing until I read the comments section 

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Another new favorite and a regular in our meal planning rotation! I’ve made it for my mom and she loves it too!

  3. Made this today, 4th of July, for my husband and I . Only difference was I used yellow rice and less cajun seasoning. He RAVED about it and asked me to print the recipe to take camping with us. Yes, that good!

  4. Made this today! Fantastic! Cooked it in the oven and it turned out beautifully. Thank you, Chungah!

  5. IS this using precooked sausage? Of couse I just bough the raw!

  6. Hi Chungah! Just wondering your opinion on using Vegetable Broth or Chicken Broth. I’m very new to cooking! 

  7. I’m a little confused about the rice. I usually buy the 90 second rice and cook in microwave as instructed. Is this the instant rice you used? If so, do you cook the rice prop to putting it in the foil? Or does it go in uncooked? Thanks in advance! My husband is going to love this recipe!

  8. Has anyone tried this recipe in the oven using parchment paper? Cheers.

  9. OMG – Thank you soooo much. I believe your idea here has solved my problem of grain free pizza. I have gone grain free and am in mourning over pizza. I could adapt this recipe to go Italian instead of Cajun. Making the cauliflower crust first is just too time-consuming when I’m in desperate need of a pizza fix. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  10. Do you think subbing instant brown rice would cook well?

  11. Thinking of trying this with cauliflower rice for the low carb option.

  12. Could I make the rice separate and just put everything else in a wok or pan and fry it up?? 

  13. This sounds delish! Would other sausages work as well, like chicken sausage? And would you still use cajun seasoning? Also I’m assuming the sausages in this recipe are precooked?

    Thanks for all your wonderful recipes, I have made many of them and haven’t had a bad one yet!

  14. Can this be made without cajun seasoning…can’t eat spicy….any suggestions on other spices?

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  15. Definitely trying this for an easy weeknight dinner!

  16. Have you ever tried this in a oven and if so I would like to because I don’t have a grill how long would I cook it and what tempature would I set my oven. 

  17. Could they be frozen after prep/packaging them up in the foil (in a freezer ziplock)?

    • Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself. Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

  18. If wanted to make in oven what would be the recommend temp and length of time? Thanks! 

  19. This looks delicious and super easy! I will definitely be trying this recipe soon. Would it be possible to cook this in the oven also?
