Heat a large frying pan with a lid. Squeeze the sausagemeat into the pan in small, meatball-sized chunks. Fry for 2 mins until their oil leaks into the pan, then push to one side and add the onions and peppers. Cook for a few mins until the onions have defrosted and softened, then stir in the garlic and Cajun spice mix. After 1 min, add the frozen rice, season and stir, then cover with a lid and cook for 2 mins until totally defrosted.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in another small pan and fry the eggs to your liking. Uncover the rice, add the peas, give everything a good stir, cover and cook for 1 min until the peas are defrosted. Serve the rice topped with the fried eggs.
Save time by using frozen chopped onions. They’re cheap as chips (£1 for 500g), and can sit in your freezer ready for those days when the fridge is bare.
