MY OTHER RECIPES

A couple months back I flew back to Minnesota to visit the Land O’Lakes test kitchens and meet some of their dairy farmers.

I even got to milk a cow you guys. Epic.

I learned so much about the amazing company and their love and dedication to their farmers and making sure they deliver the very best product to consumers.

This spreadable butter by Land O Lakes is made with just 3 simple and pure ingredients! It tastes so amazing!

One of the newer products we taste tested was this spreadable Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt. I was blown away at how delicious this product is and it features just 3 ingredients! Sweet Cream, Olive Oil, and Salt!

I’ve been using this on my toast, bagels, corn on the cob and here’s my favorite way to use it : as a recipe starter!

Since this product contains olive oil, it’s perfect for starting out your recipes in the skillet, as the olive oil will reduce the chances of burning.

This recipe starts off with 2 tablespoons of butter, then you brown your sausage and toast your rice before adding in the chicken broth.

Once the rice is nice and tender, you’ll toss in some shredded zucchini, shredded cheddar cheese and some shredded mozzarella cheese.

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt, divided
  • 1 lb. Kielbasa sausage, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the sausage and cook until lightly browned. Add in the onion and garlic salt and cook until onion is tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the rice and cook, until lightly toasted, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour in the chicken broth and stir, breaking up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 15 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed.
  3. Fluff rice and add in the zucchini and both cheeses. Stir until cheese is melted into rice, then add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and stir until melted. Serve immediately.

    I made this for the first time for dinner last night! I used regular sausage (pork and beef), regular butter and a little olive oil since that's what I had on hand. Everyone in my house really enjoyed it! My husband said it was very good and my youngest adult daughter commented it was "Awesome!" It was so quick and easy, and I will definitely make it again! I think it's worthy of a 5-star rating! Thank you, Shawn, for yet another great recipe!

    This recipe looks so YUMMY! But I'm trying to limit our carb intake for health reasons. So I'm going to try and make this with cauliflower "rice" and eliminate the chicken stock since I don't need it to cook the cauliflower. Hopefully it will still turn out yummy. I'm always looking for new ways to cook cauliflower "rice". Fingers crossed.

    how would you do this with leftover rice? I accidently cooked WAY more than needed the other night. This sounds so good and would like to try

      I would stir in the rice and see looks like first, then if it needs the chicken stock just add a little, stir the rest of the stuff in, but if you think it needs more chicken stock add more , just a little at a time, you don't want it soupy I think it will be fine. Try it.
    1. Oh man! What a bummer that you can't get Land O Lakes Butter! You can definitely substitute stick butter in the place of this, plus add a touch of olive oil to prevent any burning. Enjoy Bonita!
