Hey guys!! Today I am going to share with you an easy, satisfying dinner you can make any night of the week!

At my house we love Hillshire Farm® Sausages. We eat it them every week, with rice and black eyed peas, with cabbage and onions, Dean has even mastered the art of making pigs in a blanket which he takes for lunch. Hillshire Farm® is truly the only brand my family buys.

I love that I can pick up a wide variety of my favorite Hillshire Farm® Sausage at Target ( I am there every week!) I just head over the deli aisle where they keep the hot dogs and lunch meat and pick up whatever sausage we have a craving for.

One of the things I love the most is the sausage is already cooked, that means I can have dinner ready in a flash! Just a few minutes and I can serve up a delicious dinner to my family. With a newborn, Dean in school and a husband who needs to eat before the night shift weeknights are super hectic.

This delicious Cheesy Sausage and Rice Skillet is a go to for me on busy nights when I’m trying to feed the baby, help with homework and pack lunches. This dinner practically takes care of itself.

I just brown up some flavorful Beef Polska Kielbalsa but you can use whatever variety you like.

Then I add in a can of tomatoes with green chilies and some uncooked rice.

Into the Skillet

A little water or chicken stock goes in and butter, then you bring to a boil, simmer covered for about 15-20 minutes.

When it is all cooked up and absorbed I take it off the stove.

Add in some colby jack cheese (or your favorite)

Add Cheese

Then you have an easy dinner that the whole family will love!
