I realized almost too late. I tried a new recipe last week that my family enjoyed, and I didn't save it or share it anywhere. Oh noes!!!
Apologies to whoever shared it on their Facebook timeline since I've forgotten who that was..and can't give credit to them. But I did recognize the blog it was from when I did an internet search for 'smoked sausage rice broccoli.' YUM, and thank you, Midnight Baker.
Here's the recipe from her site. For me and my family, we skipped the onion, red peppers, and pepper. And all I could find was sharp cheddar (but I'd love to try the extra sharp if I can find it next time). We had company over for dinner the night I served it, so I can't tell you how the leftovers reheat - we didn't have any! Do make sure you're using the darn biggest skillet you've got to make it easier. I've got a 10" and had to be extra careful if I didn't want to end up washing the stove the next day.
