Red Beans and Rice with Sausage

I recently found this great recipe blog that has a lot of easy, delicious, family-pleasing recipes (and the pictures make the food look even better)! I'm kind of weird, but I'm very picky about sausage and the only kind I like is the smoked link kind, but when I say "liked" I mean "obsessed/can't-get-enough-of"...see, weird, right? So, when I saw this recipe, I knew it would be a winner!

Red Beans and Rice

Rice - whatever kind you like (of course I have to make 2 different kinds - brown for Reid and me, white for Matt)

1 pkg. (14 oz) smoked sausage - whatever kind - I've tried the turkey, pork, and beef - all good

1 - 2 cans Red Beans (I ended up using 2)

Creole Seasoning (either Tony Sacheres or Zatarans

Olive Oil

1. Cook Rice.
2. While cooking, thinly slice the sausage. Add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil to a pan and heat over medium heat for a couple minutes. Add the sausage and a good sprinkling of the seasoning. Cook for about 7 minutes, flipping every so often, until the sausage is nice and brown.
3. Drain the red beans and add to the pan with the sausage. Stir until warmed through. I also like to add more seasoning so the beans are seasoned as well!
4. Serve with your rice and some cornbread!!
