Sweet and Dirty Rice

I originally posted this recipe back in 2012, I don’t know what made me think ‘yummy apricots and sausage’ but I’m glad I did because it’s fabulous (still). When I decided to start operation recipe revive I quickly thought about my sweet and dirty rice.

This is a casual side dish, although I’ve been know to make a meal out of leftovers.

Instructions
  1. Over medium high heat in a large, preferably non stick pan, cook the sausage while breaking it apart with a wooden spoon.
  2. If you are adding the sage sprinkle it over the broken up sausage and continue to cook.
  3. When the sausage is nearly done (still a bit pink) add the shallots. Continue cooking until the onions are slightly translucent and the sausage is no longer pink.
  4. After the sausage is done cooking turn off the heat and stir in the rice.
  5. Once the rice is mixed in add the apricots and parsley, stir to incorporate. Serve warm.
Recipe Notes

This is a very causal side dish but I've been known to serve it with Thanksgiving dinner.  Scarfing it down the day of is best, but heating up in the microwave works just fine.
