I've had to resort to buying store-bought (gluten) bread for my husband's sandwiches for his work lunch. GASP!
Anyway, I've had to get creative in finding new ways to cook, so I decided to try something new and came up with this recipe for an Italian Sausage and Rice Skillet Meal. I was also trying to use up a few ingredients from my freezer as we are going on vacation in a few weeks, and I didn't want my freezer to have much in it, in case we lost power (always a possibility in FL) while we were away. Anyway, this is what I came up with, and everyone pretty much loved it!
Gluten Free Italian Sausage and Rice Skillet Dinner
1 ham bone (this is not necessary, I was just trying to use mine up from the freezer. If you don't have one, skip step 1. in the instructions.)
2 cups of brown rice
5 cups of water
1 large can of diced tomatoes
1 chopped onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 tsp basil
1 tsp orgeano
1 tsp salt
1 lb. Italian sausage, cooked and drained
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese.
1. Combine ham bone and water in a large pot. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours or until any leftover ham on the bone is falling off. Remove bone and discard.
2. Add rest of ingredients except the cheese. Cover pot and simmer for 45-50 minutes or until rice is done. Take off heat, add in cheese, and stir until melted.
