Prepared in a skillet, this Smoked Sausage Fried Rice is a new family favorite recipe that is perfect for summer!
Smoked Sausage Fried Rice
Hello Capturing Joy readers! It’s Kara from Creations by Kara. I usually love cooking and baking, but in the heat of the summer, I find it sooo hard to be motivated to make dinner. It’s too hot for soup, and heating up the oven isn’t an option. We love salads, but my family complains if I serve them every single day. Easy recipes that can be made in a skillet are a lifesaver!

Easy summer meal- Smoked Sausage Fried Rice
My boys are fans of all things pork, so they loved this recipe. I love that it is loaded with healthy vegetables. They give it a great crunch- just make sure you don’t overcook them! If you have leftover rice, this is a perfect way to use it up. I hardly ever do, so I just start a batch of rice cooking in my rice cooker first thing. By the time the veggies are chopped and cooked, the rice is done and ready to add. Easy peasy!
Fried Rice with smoked sausage- a new family favorite meal!
I served this with fresh melons for a complete meal that the whole family loved. Enjoy!
