This simple sausage stir fry is a perfect quick dinner, and you can change it up with different types of sausage and veggies. This is my go-to version.

I should make a list of my go-to dinners, the ones I make over and over and don’t even need to look at a recipe. This is one of our favorites. You can’t beat sausage for easy recipes since it already has the seasoning built right in!

Sausage Stir Fry with Rice

One kind of processed food is sausage. They are made by mixing ground beef with spices, preservatives, and other ingredients, like flour or breadcrumbs, and then filling the mixture into wrappers. They are among the world’s earliest varieties of meat preservation. Around the world, various sausage varieties are made using various techniques. Sausage is thought to have been formed when a man found salt’s ability to preserve food. Your need for energy to start the day is its primary goal. Breakfast sausage, often produced from pork, is a word used commonly in America to describe sausage consumed during breakfast. This sausage is made specifically for the morning. 

Easy Fried Rice and Fiery Andouille Sausage

Easy fried rice and fiery Andouille sausage bits combine to make the ideal flavors for a simple and quick supper. You may easily find your preferred brands of sausage or junk in your kitchen, and this dish is quite flexible. Moreover, ground meat is tasty. The ideal rice to use while creating fried rice is medium- to long-grain rice. This results in fluffy, robust rice that holds together after being fried and doesn’t crumble. Use medium or long grain rice if you want your fried rice to taste like restaurant food. Everything tastes better with smoked sausage, especially fried rice. This family-friendly dish may be prepared in just one skillet.

It’s impossible to stop tasting the smoky flavor of the savory pork plus sticky rice and the smoothness of the chopped vegetables and eggs. Cajun seasonings can be sprinkled on the andouille sausage for additional flavor. On Big Tuesday, you want a big lunch like this. Everyone finishes their plate of smoked sausage fried rice because it is so delicious. One of the best uses for leftover vegetables and grains. Good for lunch boxes and dinner preparation. You may easily prepare a great meal with just a few kitchen cupboard products.

Sausage Stir Fry with Rice Tips and Tricks

This sausage stir fry is just a starting point because you can do so many things with it. Add in peppers, broccoli, asparagus, or whatever other veggies you like. Change the flavor of the sausage for a different taste entirely. Another good thing about sausage is that it keeps in the refrigerator for a while and freezes and thaws well too. I always have a couple of flavors of fully-cooked chicken sausage links on hand at any time so I can add them to a variety of recipes.

I typically like medium-grain white rice with stir-fries even though I know it’s not the healthiest choice. You can serve this up with brown rice or even quinoa if you prefer. If you are low carb, you don’t need any rice at all and can eat it on its own, maybe with a salad on the side.

What are some of your favorite sausage flavors? I almost always stick to chicken sausage, and my favorites are any kinds that have cheese inside. My boys love chicken apple sausage, so I usually keep some of those on hand for dinners for them. Hotlinks on buns are always a favorite with the grownups, and andouille sausage is perfect for Cajun recipes like gumbo or jambalaya. Whatever your favorite, I’m sure it will work perfectly in this easy sausage stir fry recipe!
