Nina’s Dirty Rice

Nina's Dirty Rice

My Dirty Rice goes great with my Cornish Hens! I always use Zatarain’s Rice because it never gets sticky. You NEVER use sticky rice in Cajun food.


1 16-ounce regular package of Jimmy Dean Sausage (Click HERE to get some Jimmy Dean’s!)
½ cup green onion
1 onion
4 tablespoons of garlic
4 cups cooked Zatarain’s Rice (Get some Zatarain’s Rice right HERE!)
5 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper


In a large skillet, sauté the onion and green onion in 1 tablespoon of butter. When almost done, add the garlic. Add sausage and cook completely. Stir the cooked rice. When mixed together, remove from the heat and add 4 tablespoons of butter. Cool uncovered because you don’t want to overcook the rice. Then, it’s all ready to eat!
