Minute Rice photo We_can_help-610x528.jpgThis Mom knows how it is to be rushed to get a healthy  meal on the table .  Minute Ready To Serve Rice can help you get a meal done literally in minutes.  The meal I'm sharing today took less than 20 minutes to create from the pantry to the table.  Plus it got this "picky families" seal of approval.

Mom Notes:

I used Nettle’s sausage in links because that is what my husband prefers. You could also use ground sausage just brown it first then mix it in.  Another great add in option would be shredded chicken.  Just boil your chicken in advance (great in the crock pot) and then shred it with a fork and mix it in.

The kids like to sprinkle shredded cheese on the top of theirs.  So, you might want to keep a bowl on hand.  

This meal is very budget friendly and versatile.  The cost of this meal for me to prepare was right at $5.00. I used a coupon for the rice.  It would be around $6.50 without the coupon.  Not bad to feed a family of 5.
