Method

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

I added chicken to this and used normal chorizo and it worked perfectly. Slightly dry so i'd add half a can of tinned tomatoes next time but the whole family loved it!

I used fresh onions and pre-boiled some packet rice. Also made the rice part of the dish and cooked some chorizo sausages separately. The cajun seasoning wasn't very spicy. If I made again, I would use more. All in all, a good midweek supper.
