Baked jambalaya (OAMC)

Here’s a delicious Once A Month Cooking treat for you: jambalaya that you’ll eat with a fork instead of a spoon! You can double, triple, or whatever this recipe to make multiple batches. The recipe below makes enough to feed an average family of four. I like to add something green to the meal on the day it’s served.

Baked Jambalaya

1/2 c celery, chopped
1/2 c green pepper, chopped
Scallion, chopped
Clove of garlic, minced
1/2 lb kielbasa, cooked and sliced
1/2 lb ham, cooked and diced
1/2 t thyme
1/2 t oregano
1 t paprika
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 t cumin
14 oz can of crushed tomatoes
1 c broth (your choice)
1 c long grain rice

Mix everything together in a large bowl. Put into a 9 x 13 baking dish and cook covered at 375 for about 45 minutes to freeze for later or 60 minutes to serve immediately. Rice will be slightly undercooked at 45. Freeze covered.

To serve: Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge first or place directly in the oven at 375 until heated through.
